Some of you may have read about Poe, my female ball that I had to put down. I have been waiting for the necropsy results and got them today.
The vet said that she had very large blood clots in her spinal column, as well as large one in her aorta that went down to her kidneys. There were also small blood clots in her brain that caused the neurological damage.
When I asked what caused these, the vet told me that only severe trauma would have caused this, and they do not think that egg laying would have done it. This makes me feel very confused as of how she would have gone through so much trauma. We never dropped her, she never fell, never used a snake hook to move her, never squished her in the rack. She never escaped or anything. She was eating healthily a week before the symptoms... What the heck could have caused her trauma????
This makes me sad to think about, I really miss her. But at least I know now that it was not IBD, but the loss still tugs on my heart. :(
