Dear Jenny, I worked as a vet. assistant before having to quit a couple of weeks ago because of the pain I'm in. I also have a dog so I understand your pain. I don't think your puppies death was your fault at all. Even if you had taken him to the vet they wouldn't have been able to detect an obstruction without x-rays. And even then, there probably was nothing that they could have done. So there is no way that you should have known. I know it sounds terrible for me to say this, but things like this just happen sometimes. I am glad that he got to spend his last days at home with the ones he loved instead of at a veterinarians office having painful tests done. I am so sorry for your loss. Please realize that this was not your fault. And I wouldn't say that to you if it wasn't true.:{ Teresa
