Samson is dead. I came back from a 2 day leave and my mom was feeding him Al the right stuff. He is dead. Still limp. What do I do for necropsy?? Refrigerate or freezer? Please help. :(

Bless his heart! I'm so sorry. I've read in other posts that you should double-bag and freeze him. Not sure where to send him, but Joan will know.

I double bagged him and he is in the freezer. If I don't hear anything about necropsy I will ask my vet if he can do it. I'm devastated. There is no good reason for him to have died.

I'll send you necropsy instructions if you want to use Dr, Cooley at MSU. Let me know.
