have a 10 year old chihuahua poodle mix dog, she is small around 20lbs. one day i woke up around 6am, and found her breathing heavily. this was not normal for her or any dog. the room temp was cool since its still early morning. then i gave her a bath outside. then i noticed that she didnt shake the water off her body as dogs always do. so i wiped her with a towel but still she is wet. so i placed her on a towel on the floor. still she was breathing heavily. when i got downstairs to search for answers on the internet (around 7:30am) i noticed one my dog was acting up, so i went upstairs to check, then i found her lying on the floor in the corner. its like she fainted, when i carried her she seemed lifeless but she still has heartbeat. when i got her downstairs, blood came out of her nose. she was not breathing anymore. so i rushed her to the vet, but along the way, her mouth and tongue was already violet and a bubbly red fluid is coming out of her nose. she was barely alive when i got the the vet. then after a while her heart stopped beating..
i just want to know if bathing contributed to her fast death. i really just have myself to blame.. is this normal for a dog with congestive heart failure do die this fast?? please shed some light on this matter as i cant stop blaming myself for her sudden deathView Thread
