Dr. J. :

Hi, I am very sorry to hear of this.It would be nearly impossible to say what your little guy died from. But certainly, I am very surprised that your doc did not offer any suggestions or information to you. When a dog dies, all the signs above can be present but if I had to give you a medical guess I would bet it was cardiac related and possibly something like cardiomyopathy especially since he went so quick. This is a type of heart disease that can be silent and then come on very quickly and cause death very quickly. Again, I am very sorry to hear of you loss. I see that you are currently offline but please feel free to come back and post any questions that you may have and I will get back to you just as soon as I can. I have an appt to see at 3pm but will check back as soon as I can for any questions you may have. I want you to feel better about this and feel informed and know that someone definitely cares about your loss. Sincerely, DRJ

Customer:

my dog was only 7 yrs old I called the vet early in the morning but he wanted me to bring him in 3 hour later. My Buddha was sick two weeks ago with runny stool lasted about a week then my other dog got it I thought maybe it was some kind of virus. he was having a hard time breathing . when I got home to take him to the vet he had already passed. there was no stools or urine that came out? what does that mean?

Dr. J. :

The fact that there were no stools or urine that came out might mean he was dehydrated. If he was having trouble breathing I still think that you were probably dealing with a cardiac /heart issue. That is the most likely cause in a dog with those signs. The reason I suggested cardiomyopathy was because he was so young because that can strike any dog of any age. I will check back to see if you have other questions. Sincerely, DRJ
