Need advice

SO I havn't posted here in a while. But I need advice big time. Last night my lab snapped and attacked my chihuahua. For starters these dogs grew up together and I got them both as puppies at the same time in 2008. Last night we were sitting around a fire in my back yard and my friend had my chi on his lap and my lab was laying under my feet. Every thing was normal. Then out of nowhere my lab lunged and picked up my chi in her mouth and like bit her and shook her. Never ever has anything like this happened before. She has never shown agression towards anyone or anything before. She is very patient with my kids and I would never in 100 years see this coming. I picked up my chi, called the emerg vet line and this was abuot 12:30 am. (a vet didn't actually call me back until 10 am today) She wasn't bleeding or anything but she wasn't moving her back legs and she wasn't breathing very well. She ended up passing away shortly after. I know I have to put my lab down. I have never had to put an animal down. Do I just call the vet and tell them to put her down? Will they do it to a perfectly healthy animal? I dont' want to rehome her and risk her snapping on someone else or their dogs or children. I have kept her in her kennel all night and so far all day only letting her out to do her business. Ugh I don't know what to do. I don't trust her anymore. I don't want anything to happen again. I hate to think I would need to put her down but I don't see any other option at this point. Any advice???? Last week my other chihuahua died. She had a seizure. I can't take losing all three dogs in the such a short period.
