my dog was a 12 year old female boxer and this morning noticed she was very bloated and about an hour later I went out to get her and she was under the deck laying in a hole looking like what was almost seizing and before I could make my way to her within the next 5 minutes she was dead

cocoa9914,

We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your boxer. I know you must be so sad and confused about what happened.

It would be impossible for our vets here to tell you what may have caused her death since they don't know your pup's medical history.

If you haven't already, please talk to your vet. He or she may want to do an autopsy to determine cause of death. If you have other animals in the home this could be a good idea just in case it was something she ingested or a disease that could be transimitted.

We are thinking of you. Let us know what you find out.

Take care,
Olivia
