CO2 sounds great to me. Even euthanizing a rat is tough. Since their veins are so small, the vets have to inject straight into the heart.

I didn't know CO2 would kill the rat, though. When I took my babies to be euthanized when they got old, the vet would put them under with CO2, but still had to inject.
