Remember Your Beloved Pet
Can I be sure my dog really died after his seizure?

My dog, a large black lab/shepherd mix passed on a few days ago now, he reportedly had a seizure, when my step father went out to him, he died and a little later started foaming at the mouth, there wasn't any heart beat or breathing that I could tell.. we took him to the vet afterwords for the cremation process

I know that sometimes ( I think) an animal or human can appear dead with no outward sign of heartbeat or breathing but be in a coma, I just need to know the truth of whether there is a possibility he is alive in a coma or some other condition

Thanks
