I lost my Trouble today, to a bad reaction to anesthesia. I took him to the groomer at my vet, which was our routine. Trouble had a problem with letting people groom him, so he went there to get clipped down regularly, and they generally used anesthesia to get him done. He was so excited to go for a car ride today. I got a call saying he was ready to go, when I got there and they said he was still a little groggy, which I expected, but before they even got him to me, he went down and started seizing. The vet worked on him for almost an hour, but couldn't bring him back. I feel so guilty. Maybe on a different day, things would have been different. They did bloodwork before the anesthesia, and everything was normal. I know sighthounds are sensitive to anesthesia, but my vet sees a lot of sighthounds at his practice, which is why I go to him, and Troub has had this same anesthesia protocol before with no problems. I know it will get easier with time, but sitting here alone tonight, it is just devastating.

So sorry! Very hard to lose one at all, much more suddenly like that. Please accept my heart-felt condolences from one who knows how it feels. I'm sure Trouble knows how much he is loved and missed and will take that love to the other side with him.
