Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi. My name is***** I'm very, very sorry to hear about this loss for you. Did all this just happen today? Was he having any vomiting prior to the visit? Was he eating normally prior to the day of going into the office? Did they take any x-rays? Did they offer to do a necropsy to get more answers?
Did your vet have any thoughts as to why he passed so unexpectedly? IN a situation like that at my ER, I will offer an owner an autopsy to try and get them some answers. Sometime this can provide a very specific problem and other times it rules out specific problems. A fever of unknown origin is basically the known information at this time. It could be from an infection or from the body been that stressed. Could it have been higher than that at some point? Could he have had a heat stroke?
