    I’m so so sorry again for your loss of Debo, I truly am.

    I have been using the same cooling pad for a few years now and will continue to do so. With my utmost respect though, I’m just not convinced that it was the cooling pad’s gel that was the cause. This is hard for me to say as I know the pain you’re going through. I’ve done some research since Debo’s death and I cannot find anything that directly links the cooling pad’s gel to toxicity. I’ll have to research the sodium levels now though for my own knowledge. Wilson will be keeping his cooling pad.

    Yeah, Debo loved his cooling pad! I don't know for sure what it was either! It makes it hard because I don't have closure, that is why I tortured myself trying to find out what chemicals are in there.
    I think it's ok too, as long he doesn't get curious & start chewing it up.

    I was out of town when this all happened, but I wanted to say that I'm so so so very sorry about sweet Debo. I am like you and would need to know EXACTLY why he passed on. Did you research the type of anesthetic they used? That would be another thing to look at. It could be a bunch of stuff added together.

    You're exactly right libra926. I think the pad started it, but I guess it could've been coincidental.

    He went to his family Vet two days before & had a clean bill of health. The vet even said his heart and lungs sounded great.
    They gave him propofol & a breathing tube because the seizures would not stop.

    I wish I knew the final diagnosis.

    My heart goes out to you for the loss of Debo and the unanswered questions remaining. You need closure and to get that, you should have all your questions answered. I also wandered why the vet wanted to do other surgerys on him while he was under. That thought made me crazy with all that he was suffering from. In my mind the cooling pad first and the vet second caused poor Debo's heart to shut down. Please accept my deepest sympathy as I still can't get this out of my mind. (((hugs)))

    I'm still so sad about Debo.

    I am not sure you can pursue legal action though. Just like everything, I'm certain there was a warning in tiny little writing, that it should be used under supervision. Sadly, we all got a tragic reminder of just how our Bully's get themselves in trouble. We must assume things that have chemicals in them are toxic and must be watched closely. On the one hand, these cooling pads help lots of Bully's in heat that might severely hurt them. But as consumers, we have a responsibility to use with caution.
    I'm sure many of us would never have thought twice about the dangers. I would have, just because Jake eats everything...and he would've eaten that pad too. It's a horrible, tragic lesson..my heart breaks for you Emily.

    Awh Sherry, thank you for the hugs!

    I was wondering myself, how the palate surgery and the MRI would help him, or even change what treatment is!?

    Thank you so much Sherry!

    God Bless you for posting this and maybe saving the lives of countless fur babies. I am so sorry for what happened to you and baby Debo. I would definitely talk to that lawyer and take a firm stand with the company for false advertisement how can they advertise its non-toxic when in fact it can be. Great on you for doing your research!!! Sending love hugs and prayers your way and if you ever need me I'm here.

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.
