Our 10 year old cat was found not moving head twisted

Customer Question

Our 10 year old cat was found not moving head twisted downward with eyes open and chest wall vibrating then it stopped, no heartbeat, no respirations and drools coming from his mouth.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. My condolences for your loss of Baxter. Please tell me what you need to discuss with me.

I don't need anything at this time. My reason for contact was to determine if anything could have been done to safe Baxter. We waited for sometime but there was no sign of live. We have buried him.
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 1 year ago.

I understand. Without knowing what happened to Baxter I couldn't have told you if he could have been saved or not. Your description of him, however, suggested that even critical care would have been for naught.

You may receive an inappropriate follow up sent by the site ostensibly sent by me. It wasn't and I apologize in advance should you receive it.
