I had a six year old English Bulldog. Last week, the pet sitter was playing with her outside in the doggy pool and her tongue turned a blueish color. She put my dog in a cool bath to calm her down, her tongue eventually went back to its normal color pink. She was perfectly fine after that. My pet sitter recommended about two hours later that we take her to the vet. We took her to the vet (she jumped in the car and walked in the vet perfectly fine). The vet took her to the back and gave her an IV or shot of steroid, my little girl quickly went downhill and they had to perform CPR to bring her back. After they brought her back to life, they rushed her to the emergency vet up the street so that they could see her. The vet at the emergency place called me and said that they must perform surgery on her soft palette because it was blocking her airway. The next day they said my baby was doing fine and then the day after that they said she was breathing on her own and they took her out of the oxygen incubator. The day after that I received a call that she went into cardiac arrest and passed away. Can you please help me understand what happened to my baby???
Please help me understand. My bulldog was my whole world, she was my life! I don't know how I'm going to do this thing called "life" without her. She was so perfect in every way possible.
