My golden retriever died suddenly today ; when I found him

Customer Question

Hi my golden retriever died suddenly today ; when I found him his body was limp he could walk ; was breathing ; had vomited a yellow bile and had a large stool next to him ; I took him to the vet but he died on the journey there ; what could have killed him ?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your golden retriever?
Customer: He was in good health and this happened suddenly

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

I am so sorry about your loss.

Can you tell me how old he was?

Did his gums look pale, yellow or whiter then usual?

Was the stool black or having any blood?

Did his belly look distended or fluidy?
