Yesterday I took my 6 mo puppy to the park and all of a sudden his back legs went out and he crawled to me and died. I have had all his shots and check up. What happened?

Hi,
Welcome. I'm Dr. Bruce and I've been a small animal veterinarian for over 15 years. I'm very sorry to hear about this sudden loss of Boomer. This is absolutely a very tragic situation. Was he acing absolutely normal in the hours prior to his passing? No vomiting? Eating well? Was he having any breathing issues? At the park, was he in your sight the entire time?
