Thanks 4 your advice. I've sent pics & a story for the pet cemetary page here. I also posted a memorial on my personal web page.
I think it would have cost quite a bit for an autopsy. That's a good idea, but it's too late now. I asked a vet if he could analyze a specimen of what she was bringing up, but he said even that would cost a lot & would not do me any good since all he could test for were toxins. I just hope her pup will be ok & that it's not a hereditary thing.
Thanks once again 4 being so kind.
