Have there been any changes to the diet? New food? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys? Stressful changes to the environment?

What did Duffy pass from?

Unfortunately, we needed to take Maggie in to the emergency vet last night after she suffered a major stroke. She is now at peace with Duffy.
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 11 months ago

I am so sorry to hear of her passing, but I am relieved to hear that she's now with her friend. My greatest condolences for your recent losses.
