My 9 month old Ragamuffin died suddenly after having what looked like a stroke of some kind leaving him unable to use his hind end. His end was violent with him struggling and fighting for air. He was completely cyanotic at the end. I guess my question is: What could have caused this? The emergency clinic I took him to said too much time had gone by to do an autopsy and they just figured it was a heart attack brought on by purebred inbreeding. He had had absolutely NO symtoms of anything wrong except a kind of hacking cough that almost sounded like sneezing and didn't slow him down in the slightest. I apprecieate any information you might be able to give me as I'm having some difficulty finding closure. I still miss him so much.
He may have had a blood clot or a emboli. Sorry, vetcare
