    Exclamation Please help & advise

    This morning we found Lola dead in her crate. The day before yesterday Monday we had taken her to the vet to have her rabies shot (05/14) Lola was in perfect health, I have all the paperwork for all her shots and she was reported to be in PERFECT health each & every time I took her for her check ups. I'm have been in this site since the beginning. You all have seen pictures of Lola & seen how much we cared for her & tried. I am truly heartbroken. My only questions to you all is what can or should I do in this situation? I feel it could have been the vets fault. I called them & he pretty much just pushed me to cremate her. I plan on taking her somewhere else for answers before deciding what to do.


    Please give any advice you can, I feel lost.

    Thanks

    OMG.... how absolutely horrible. I am heart broken for you.

    I would definitely take her some where for an autopsy (not called that for dogs, but the same thing) - if something went wrong with the shot being given they should be able to tell you.

    Hugs and prayers to you and your family. so sorry

    I'm so sorry, it must feel devastating. I agree with 2BullyMama, have an autopsy done. Other wise you'll be second guessing forever.

    Ohhhh..I am so very heartbroken for you. You must be beside yourself and not knowing why makes the pain even worse. I can only tell you what I would do. I would ask for an autopsy and at another vets. If there is something wrong with that vaccine or that vet made an error, it's important to know. That will be expensive and I suppose there is always the chance the results would be inconclusive. None of this will help your pain and I'm truly sorry. Please let us know....

    OMG this is beyond devastating!!! I am truly sorry for your loss

    Call a different vet in town and find out where you can get a necropsy done. If you have the vet do it, they will just send your dog to the same place and charge a hefty service fee. Do this asap because your baby needs to be kept cold (like in a refrigerator)...

    I do want to point out a couple of down sides to this... They will likely only be able to tell you the cause of death but they won't likely be able to tell you if there was anything that could be proven that the vet was at fault. So it is up to you, knowing how may be even more painful for you then not knowing....but it may help bring you closure. Again I am so sorry for your loss

    I don't even know where to start. My heart is breaking for you, this is horrible to go through.

    When my Bella was very ill, the breeder tried to convince me to put her down, but made sure he said to get tests done to prove it was congenital. My vet actually told me that it isn't that detailed and that some things may never be found out.

    I hope you have answers. Did your vet do the 3 year rabies? If so, I would investigate that. I am not sure of all the side effects or risks, but I do know dogs that have had issues.

    Please know we are all here for you. That little Lola is watching over you and telling all the other bullies at the Rainbow bridge how loved and special she was.

    Always with me
