    My 10 year old labrador died suddenly.

    1st thing I noticed was she did not want to eat her food less then an hour before she died. Then the other dog barked and she went to the door to bark and then sat there. The next thing I noticed was she came back and started to flex her legs and growned, I ran to her and she died in front of me. My son buried her in the back yard. She did go out a few days before in the safe back yard with the other older dog and they ran around.

    Does anyone have any idea what it might be and was there anything I could do or have given her everyday so this type of thing does not happen to my other dogs? I read Blood clot. Is there something to give them to lessen blod clots? Do Blood clots cause a dog to not want to eat?

    I was a week late in going to the vet for the normal heart worm. Does this sound like heart worm? This dog was always active and so loving.
    Having a Dog is such a joy. Losing them is terrible.

    Not heartworm no, it was probably a clot, and no theres nothing you can feed, the only way to prevent them is to discover them early and put your dog on blood thinners, but if you do this then any scratch could become as life threatening as the clot itself. This is a horrible thing to have had happen and I'm very sorry, its a tramatising event to have to have gone through, and my thoughts are with you in this horrible time.
    The reason dogs are great is they wag their tails, not their tongues.

    I am really sorry for your loss. But at least it was quick - no prolonged pain.

    Hugs to you - it is always difficult to lose a loved animal friend.

    So sorry to hear of your loss.

    Friend...companion...part of the family...A non-animal person could never understand the pain of losing a beloved pet.
    All this talk of religion, but it's how you live your life that is the all-important thing.
    If you set out each day to do all the goodness and kindness that you can, and to do no harm to man or beast, then you are walking the highest path.
    And when your time is up, if you can leave the earth a better place than you found it, then yours will have been a life well lived.

    I know you said that she did not eat that last meal, but how about her previous meal or two? Could it have been bloat/GDV?

    So sorry to hear of your loss - I am sure your heart is broken.
    Radiant happiness, abundant wellness, and a healthy Earth belong to everyone, including our companion animals.

    I'm sorry to hear about your loss. What a terrible thing to have to go through. I'm sure it could have been a number of different causes and unfortunately it is very hard to predict a blood clot. Again, sorry for your loss.

    We lost our Labrador at 10 years old as well just this past August. It was very sudden and he died in his sleep in the middle of the night. My heart goes out to you as he was clearly a member of our family and it was quite a devastating experience.
