To begin the process of an euthanasia outcome, navigate to the animal's record and the Medical tab. On the Medical Summary subtab, you'll see a blue button for "Mark Medical Outcome".
Clicking this button, you'll see two options: Unassisted Death in Custody and Euthanasia.
If you select euthanasia, you'll then be asked to complete the euthanasia outcome form. Clicking "Save" at the end of the outcome form will complete the euthanasia outcome. To log more than one drug used for the euthanasia, click "Add Another Controlled Substance" near the bottom of the form.
- The euthanasia outcome form is configurable via Configuration by users with configuration permissions.
- This form includes fields for controlled substances tracking. If a vet or external clinic is involved with euthanizing and thus you don't have the details on the controlled substances used, these fields can be made optional on this form. Read about Controlled Substance Tracking here.
- If you do not perform on-site euthanasia, you may want to hide some of the fields such as "Performed By" because the dropdown will only include your on-site staff.
- If euthanasia is performed off-site, external vets or clinics should be added into your Location configurations and can be organized under a single parent site.
