I don't know what happened. She was fine this morning but tonight I got home and she was dead in her house. Yesterday she was completely normal. I want a necropsy report. How do I go about getting one?

I'm so sorry Anna. I bet Joan will be able to tell you.

Anna, double bag her in freezer bags and freeze her. I will send you instructions. I'm so sorry for your loss. They rarely show signs of illness ... probably a survival instinct in the wild. Often, as with your furball, they seem fine and then suddenly they are dead. She left her body behind, but she is with many of our babies over The Rainbow Bridge waiting for us to join them: viewtopic.php?f=54&t=2125

Anna, I don't know how I missed your post, but write to me about what you did with her body.

I haven't done anything with it yet... Which sounds gross... I know. But it's so hard. I just don't know if I should get the report or not. Knowing that once they're done they'll probably just toss her in a trash can or burn her really bothers me but I really want to know what happened to her. I thought I did everything I was supposed to. If anything ever seemed wrong I always asked. She is the closest thing I have had that's died. I'm just so upset. I don't know what to do. I'm just torn. :/

Also... You said you'd send me instructions. Where did you send them to?

Anna, what time did you find her Friday and where have you been keeping her? I will need to call Dr. Cooley and see if it's too late to do a necropsy. Freeze her as instructed and I will let you know what Dr. Cooley says. If it's too late or you don't want a necropsy, you can bury her at home. Cut off some fur as a remembrance. Just remember, she is no longer in that body.

I think I'm just going to bury her but thank you. She's still in her house and I found her on Friday morning. When I wrote that message. Like 2:00 am. Just don't worry about it. I just wish I would have known to freeze her. :/
