My pup Lilly 11 mos old died yesterday after her spay surgery. We had pre op testing done all checked out fine. After her surgery she was in recovery and woke up had to pee while she peed she had a heart attack. Vet revived her, then later she had another attack, they revived her, then later she had the 3rd attack and she died. I am so sick over this. She was my baby, full of life and so kissy lovey I miss her I have been crying for two days. I see her face every time I close my eyes so I cant sleep I even took a pill to help me sleep and I couldnt sleep…i see her every where I go in the house. How do i get over this loss…How could she die??? she was healthy!! Im so very very sad.
