My 13 year old beloved dog Jimmy died on December30 2020. He had heart murmur diagnosed 4 years ago, started medication Cardisure and Frusemide in 2019. Also medication for seizures Phenomav since 8years. He developed coughs 4,5 months ago and was put on nuelin tablets too. On that day after dinner around 5pm he started coughing but normally coughs stop after a while. But that day he coughed continuously and and when the cough stopped started panting. So we took him to the emergency hospital around 8.30pm. the vet immediately took him to the treatment room and gave him a needle on the report said mild sedation to calm him but he had seizure and his heart stopped then they performed CPR and he came back to live but was struggling to breath the vet said he needed oxygen but to give the mask need to sedate him again but there was a risk he might get heart attack again and die. But tried putting him in an oxygen box first but he was suffocating in that box. When the vet gave a second needle to sedate him his heart stopped and couldn’t revive him. My precious boy died on the table. It has been more than a month and I am still grieving with guilt with so many unanswered questions. Like if I had taken him immediately to the regular vet would he have survived? The emergency vet did everything correct to save his life. That vet said he had Dyspnea. Please anyone a vet or someone who lost their pet under these circumstances reply. Still grieving with guilt.
