he passed away..........they think it was a blood clot in the lung
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago
Oh, no! I am so sorry. That is a possible complication of heat stroke. Are they doing an autopsy to find out?

I dont think so---my wife just left the vet....he has always had trouble breathing ---we only take him on short walks....
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago
Let me know if I can help in any way, apart from the phone call. My sincere condolences.

thank you -----were a bit in shock ---he always had a breathing issue......hard panting while walking but that was true of our last Norwich who lived 14 years....who died from respiratory problems
he wasn't walked hard and was lively on the walk stopping a few times to greet people and other dogs...and then my wife noticed his tongue had turned blue .......having trouble breathing brought him to the vet after carrying him home......
we re looking for answers ? Collapsed trachia ? what could have happened ?
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago
I can imagine you were in shock! My sincere condolences. How are you and your wife doing today?
How old was he?
Was it hot outside when he was walking? If his body temperature was 106 or 107, this could have been a heat stroke.
He may have had a blood clot, that caused his tongue to turn blue and to have difficulty breathing and panting. If he could not pant, he could not cool himself off and stress and a warm day could have caused the high temperature.
You mention he always had a breathing issue. For how long? He may have had PH, pulmonary hypertension, which would have made him breathe hard, and could have caused a blood clot in his lungs.
Please accept my sincere condolences, and let me know what other questions I can answer.
