Hi Doctor,

I need help which is perhaps very late but even though i want to know something serious.

Recently last Sunday i lost my son he was German Shepherd 3 yrs only.
Since last week Wednesday he wasn’t eating we took him to one vet care in but that doctor without taking his blood sample. Just gave him injection course of antibiotic for three days when we told him that what happened he said nothing just insect bite. Which i had a doubt on second day again we told that he hasn’t eaten anything please examine he didn’t just gave him injection.

He said that he is OK on last day we also told him that he is not eating and his poop was red and sticky he ignored it. Suddenly on Saturday night around 20:00pm he started showing neurological signs we cried badly we called that doctor he didn’t pick up .

We rushed our boy to other Vet but unfortunately he tried level best to save him but his body was having no fluid and he died on Sunday.

Please help me into this matter what made that we lost him he was very strong. PLEASE HELP ME so that i can know what made him to die.

I WANT TO GIVE JUSTICE TO MY SON’S SOUL

Thanks and Regards,
Ankeet

did you get a necropsy done?  that’s the only real way to determine what caused the death of your dog. i am very sorry for your loss.  it hurts, when we lose them young.  i know your pain – i lost a puppy to a birth defect a couple of years ago and it still hurts to think of him.  please give yourself time to grieve.  if you truly feel the vet didn’t do everything he could to save your dog, then yes, contact the governing body in your country.  if your location is correct, and you’re in Tanzania, here’s… Read more »

this is going to sound really, really weird, but…if you have grief counseling in your area, consider it. it was one of the best things for me. it really helped me deal with the death of my puppy. he was my first dog, and the suddenness of it was such a shock to the system that i really didn’t know what i was going to do or how i was going to recover.

i wish you solace, Ankeet.

i read an article that i agree with quite a bit…it said that people grieve as much for a lost pet as we do for lost people. i think it’s because we spend SO MUCH time with our pets, and they give so much love to us.

it hit right as i was dealing with my loss, and it helped.

Ankeet, this might help you like it helped me. http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/the-death-of-pet-can-hurt-as-much-as-the-loss-of-a-relative/2012/02/21/gIQALXTXcS_story.html

people who say “it’s just a dog” or “it’s just a cat” or hell, “it’s just a turtle” really don’t understand. and i pity them. they’ve never experienced that kind of love or grief.

there needs to be more dialog about the grief that comes with losing a pet.

I am so sorry your dog went through this, you must be devastated to have lost him in this traumatic way. If you want to take this further then I suggest you write to the Organization who deals with Veterinary Complaints in your Country. I’m in the UK so don’t know who it is, but I’m sure you will find them online.  You would need to send all the notes/invoicss from the Vet who dealt with him and also possibly a Report from the last Vet you took him to.  It is really not ethical for us to comment about… Read more »

Counselling helped me too Laura though my boy was 16 and had always been there. Its very hard to deal with.

Honestly is always the best policy Ankeet. If you dad your dog died for another reason you will have a lifetime of keeping a secret from him. You did all you could it wasn’t your fault. I lost a puppy from our last litter due to a Vets mistakes and the nurse who was looking after her. The Vet admitted it and paid compensation…but it didn’t bring her back. I do know how you feel and I would take Laura’s advice and seek counselling to talk it through. It does help. Thinking of you x

I’ve just read the article and agree with it too Laura. I’ve felt that grief myself and its easily as deep if not deeper than losing a family member. I’m feeling it agajn through my dear friend who has just lost her Great Dane from bone cancer. I wish i could help her through it but its your own private hell of pain.
