I really need some answers. My puppy died Friday and I want to know how. Thursday night when I got home from work my dad told me that my puppy had thrown up and was feeling down. That night it took him about 15 minutes to eat, when usually he scarfs it down. I figured that maybe he just had a tummy ache or something. Friday morning at about 530 am he started coughing and it was like he was choking, so at 8 my dad took him to the vet. The vet said he didn't have a fever and she diagnosed him with bronchitis. The vet gave us some pills and said he would be better in a couple days. At 6 pm the same day he died. I just don't understand how he got sick and died in 24 hours? He seemed fine during the day Thursday. When he got back from the vet it was like he couldn't lay down, because every time he did he started coughing. My dad said he came out of their room wagging his tail, coughed and then yelped loud and then fell to the ground and was immediately not breathing. Can you tell me what you think?View Thread
