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

I am so sorry to hear that Quinn passed so abruptly. If we can exclude her eating anything toxic or non-edible that could have perforated her stomach, then we'd be most concerned that she may have obstructed her airway with vomiting or severely aspirated vomit to cause her to pass. In this case, it is possible that she didn't have a health issue prior to this given our above concerns. But of course she could have been more prone to this if she had had a birth defect in her esophagus, airway or stomach. Therefore, if you did wish to know which of the above was present and if there was any birth based defects that put her at risk, it'd be ideal to have an autopsy. For this, you can take her to the local ER vet to hold her body until it can be sent for analysis (or until your regular vet is open to carry out the autopsy) and once it is that would be a way to know which of the above caused her death and whether her breeding had anything to do with it,

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
