Comment on Dealing with flashbacks after the death of your pet by Gina Ardito.
we just lost our 6 month old puppy a couple days ago. he seems to have eaten a toxic plant. we were always paying attention to him because we knew he ate random things on the floor, but we got distracted for a second and he seems to have eaten something. he threw up a couple times and we didn’t think much of it, because we thought it was for eating our other dogs food. the day after when we woke up he was really sick, and after a long day at the hospital, he went into sepsis and died. after hours waiting to see him, when the hospital allowed us to spend time with him, his heart rate and oxygen started declining as soon as he saw me. i watched him die as he struggled with the tube down his throat. i cannot stop having flashbacks of his tiny body laying there with a blank sight. i feel so guilty and so sad his life was so short, and in such a horrible way.
