Alida, I know exactly what you are feeling. Many years ago now, I had a bitch taken in for routine spaying. She never made it through and died on the operating table. I trusted the vet and even after these 30 yrs he is still my vet, but I took the blame and felt I took her to her death by my choice. It was an awful burden. I cried for weeks as if I had killed her.
I don't know what to tell you other than what the others have said, but, it wasn't your fault. If we could just know these things ahead, but we can't. We're human and we are always trying to do the best for our dogs, no matter the cost. That is what you were trying to do. She knew how much you loved her. I am just so sorry for you right now.
