Nicki, not a clue, she was fine all day Friday, had diahrrea by Friday night and seemed a little stressed, but nothing major. We gave her some Imodium and withheld dinner to get her stomach to settle and left the kennel at 8 pm. At 6 the next morning, we found her dead in her kennel, posed as if she had passed in her sleep . I had to get a necropsy done because she was at the kennel with other dogs, plus I really want to know what killed a seemingly healthy two year old dog, if it's something congentital, I need to know because we adopted her sister Luna out last year.
I'm so sad and sick over this, this poor pup deserved better.
Not to make matters worse, but I have heard that giving/taking immodium is not good, because when a person/dog has diarrhea it is because they have a bacterial infection and the diarrhea is the way the body gets rid of the bacteria, so a better solution is a rehydrating liguid, like Pedia lite etc.

WOW and you know what a sucker I am for the snow white dogs. I am so sorry Laura. She was gorgeous and I hope you guys can figure out what happened. That is the saddest scariest thing! I am just so sorry!
Well, I finally spoke to the vet this morning, all samples tested in house and all samples sent to Cornell came back negative, toxicology, CBC and panels, organ functions, everything NORMAL. They are at a loss for a definitive answer, but they're leaning towards an aneurysm of the brain since it happened so rapidly (the runny stools and foamy mouth could have been signs of a headache). At least I know it wasn't contagious and there wasn't much any of us could have done to prevent it, still a sad loss, but I suppose it was just her time.
