Thank you for getting back to me with that information. With her being spayed, the blood wouldn't have been coming from the uterine tissue. I've seen some similar cases where there is an infection in the uterus called a pyometra, but this wouldn't be the case here. With the blood that was being seen, then it would have been coming from the vaginal environment or the bladder. If it was that profuse and she was getting that compromised, the consideration for a tumor that was the source of the hemorrhage would have been very large. If it was available, an ultrasound may have been used to get more information / confirmation about this. Based on the treatments that your vet had done and how she was progressing, it sounds like the best decision was made for her. I feel that when a veterinarian discusses / brings up euthanasia, they are feeling that the situation is one where it is their feeling that it is a good decision based on what they are seeing. I can't give you an exact answer as to what was going on, but I want you to feel comfortable knowing that you gave Muffin the care that she needed and her situation was just too serious to respond to the available therapy. I know it is hard to second guess decisions, but it was the best one for her - to let her go with peace. My condolences at this time of loss.
