Why did puppy have to die from spay ? I had lost my pure breed Lhasa Apso , named Mushi who was 12 months old, she was just like a baby loving, greeted us when we came home, just full of life, I can go on and on, and suddenly her life was cut short. due to having her Spayed please please think and research your vet before spaying, I didn’t even think of her dieing it did not even cross my mind since I thought spay was so routine. What that poor baby went thru and what I witnessed was so horrendous, it was a nightmare. I had picked her up from the clinic the following day after her spay, and No Post op instructions were given to me on emergency numbers or how to take care of her after wards. I had to ask when it was ok for her to go up the stairs. I was so stressed about her surgery (this being my first Spay). When we brought Mushi home she was reluctant to walk and would take a couple of steps at a time, so we carried her outside to do her business, etc. So 4 days after I called the Vet to tell them she was in pain and not walking they said bring her in, we did they took temperature, looked visually at incision, gave us pain med and dismissed us in a hurry. Following night at 11pm Mushi”s tummy ruptured (dehisced) and her internal organs were outside of her body on the ground, what a awful thing to see my beloved baby go thru, it was excruciating, my daugther and I called 911 since no instructions were given, who in turn sent us to Er, it is a longer story, but in the end Mushi being in pain had transected her intestines, and I had to do the hardest thing of all especially not being able to say goodbye, or kiss her I was in shock and did the best thing I could , I asked the Er vet what would you do if this was your puppy? and she replied, put her to sleep , so I did the only thing I could to end her suffering, what a Loss, what a inhumane way to die, so suddenly, and unexpected. I am still in shock, I wish I would have never spayed her, she would still be with us, full of life, vibrant giving us unconditional love and trust. Thank you for reading, I am still emotional over her loss. really sad, I sent a letter to the vetboard, I hope Mushi gets justice we will see.
That is the most horrible thing I have ever heard. It makes me really happy to know just how good of a vet I have(since all of my pups have to spayed or neutered). I am soo sorry for your loss, and I hope she gets the justice she deserves.
I was sooooooooooo sad to read your post. I agree something went terribly wrong. I have never heard of anything like that. I hope you and your family and little Mushi get your justice. Love and prayers
I am so sorry for your lost. My friend's dog went through the same thing, although they were able to save her. Thank goodness they were able to save her, but she was in a lot of pain for some time. Now she is doing great, although very skinny on her special diet(even though she eats boatloads) and has to be on a ton of meds the rest of her life. It's definately worth checking into vets even for a routine procedure. My thoughts are with you.
