Euthanasia By Injection Certification

Facilitator: Dr. Cathy Anderson, DVM

ONLINE June 29, July 6 & 13, 2023:

9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.


IN-PERSON practical on July 21, 2023

The delivery of a painless and humane end of life is one of the greatest responsibilities for animal medical staff. A certified euthanasia technician's first responsibility is to the welfare of the animal; to assure that the animal is treated with compassion and respect, regardless of circumstance. The purpose of the euthanasia by injection (EBI) certification training is to provide in-depth instruction using generally recognized best practices in humane EBI for employees of a companion animal shelter or county dog warden who are responsible for this procedure.

Topics include: History of animal shelters and euthanasia; understanding euthanasia drugs and dosages; drug administration methods; humane restraint techniques; verification of death; managing stress and compassion fatigue; and federal and state requirements.

Registrants must attend all sessions and pass the final exam for certification. Sessions meet three times virtually and one time in-person near Columbus and are facilitated by certified euthanasia instructor Dr. Cathy Anderson, licensed veterinarian with a master’s degree in shelter medicine.

This training meets and exceeds the minimum requirements for euthanasia technician training as outlined under Ohio Law. (See ORC Sec. 4729.532)

This course does NOT require participants to euthanize an animal. Additional practice under the direction of a veterinarian is strongly recommended before applying for this certification. If you need help with this, please contact Ohio Fed.
