When horses need to be euthanised there are several matters to consider. A method of euthanasia is only acceptable when its effect is guaranteed.

As well, human safety during euthanasia should be addressed because of the potential hazards and unpredictability of the procedure, and proper disposal of the carcass after euthanasia should be arranged and considered before selecting the method of euthanasia.
