My dog past away on the way to see a specialist in Round

Customer Question

My dog past away on the way to see a specialist in Round Rock, Texas, after being told
by the Emergency Animal Hospital Veterinarian in Waco, Texas to take the dog and go
right NOW! He had been with our veterinarian all day and had taken x-rays showing the dogs lungs with a lot of fluid. I wished you could see the pictures and maybe tell me more
about why the lungs where so dark grays.
