    Reason for the sudden death of my dog.
    An_249656 posted:

    Until last Wednesday my dear 5-year old dog Jolie was totally fine. She was totally normal!

    However, unfortunately, the morning after, we woke up and she was very quiet. Then she was on the carpet and she urinated on it. This was absolutely not normal as she was laying down on the same place where she urinated. From that moment onwards, she looked very sad and wanted to be alone. Moreover, she could not move or walk.

    We thought to wait for an hour or so for a possible improvement. Indeed, she seemed to improve a bit and she walked, drank and did her needs. She was still quiet but was still much better.

    However, by midday she worsened again, she wanted to be lonely, could not walk and threw out. Therefore, we took her immediately to the vet. He told us that her temperature dropped to 36 and he put her on drip for 3 hours.

    In the evening we went for her and told us that he could not take any blood tests until she is a bit better and this might take around 3 days. All we had to do is take her home and warm her up, which we did. We were also told to take her back to the vet the following day.

    At night we warmed her up, and although she did not have any energy, she could move her head, and used to recognize me and she kissed me lots of time. However, she could not hold her urine, and she did that around 4 times at night.

    Unfortunately, the following morning, on Friday, she just died in the morning. I'm really heartbroken and devastate. She was really young, she had nothing until Wednesday and was dead on Friday. What is worse, i really have not real reason why she died so suddenly.

    Is there anyone who can help me with this? Some people even told me to bring another puppy but i don't know if it is a good idea especially since i expecting a baby. However, i'm really grieving for her because i'm missing her real lot!!

    Thanks a lot Souami
