Doberman Died Today

Unfortunately. I got home, recieved a call from my dad to run outside and help, it was a few 100 meters away, he was out walking him... And there he was, unconcious on the ground, eyes open.

The thing is, yesterday he was vomiting like crazy. He puked at least 10 times or so. And it was more of a green liquid vomit. No food in it. He also refused to eat. We considered going to the vet, but were gonna see if he got worse the next day. Of course I didn't expect him to DIE.

Apparently he just collapsed while they were walking.

I don't really know why I'm here, I just need to vent. I'm completely lost right now. Anyone believe it could have been prevented if we went to the vet yesterday? We took him now, but they said he was gone...

I realized I spelled my name wrong lol.

I so sorry to hear about your dog.

Did the vet tell you what he thought might have been wrong with your dog?

I'm so sorry. Some things happen so fast that you don't have time to really think about them.

Probably, but my dad was the one who went. I had to rush up and take the other dog home. I did go to the vet to see him one last time though.



I'm gonna miss this guy so much.

So very sorry for your loss. I am so sorry you found DT under these circumstances but we are glad you did. When you feel up to it, please do some research on Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) in Dobermans. This might be a possibility. RIP and fun free sweet Thor.

BTW, I have moved your post to the Rainbow Bridge forum.

Oops sorry, I didn't realize there was a board for this. The forum layout is very confusing on mobile.

So sorry for your loss. If it's any comfort, you could ask the vet to do a necropsy to find a possible cause of death.

I’m wondering whether he could have gotten into some kind of poison.

I wondered that too, as there were no signs of him getting slightly worse. He just started vomiting a lot one day and then died the next.

This whole situation is just so shocking. He was 9 years old, almost 10. I knew he was old, and that this would happen sooner rather than later. But this was just so sudden.
