Heart stopping while under anesthesia

My beautiful Ollie boy recently passed away while under anesthesia for an ACL tear repair surgery. Feb 26, 2018. He was a healthy 6 yr old and reg vet said he did not have a heart murmur or any heart issues. He loved to run and play in the snow.
I will never have any answers and my husband and I never had a chance to say goodbye. We still have his sister Sadie since they were babies. I never knew this could be so dangerous and now I am terrified to have Sadie put under for teeth cleaning. Just needed to vent. I am feeling better than the first week. 🐾❤️🐶

I am SO sorry.

Yes, anesthesia of any kind carries risks, but the sedation they use for cleaning teeth is VERY different (and safer) than the heavy anesthesia they must use for major surgery.

This breaks my heart. Everyone worries when their pups go under for surgery, but in our hearts we don't expect the worst. I send you all the hugs you need for as long as you need. I cannot tell you how sorry I am you had this happen.
