We had a 6 year old samoyed male. He was extremely healthy and walked five miles a day. He was up to date on all of his visits to the vet and got a clean bill of health at every one. We have two dogs and the female has been in heat for about 1 1/2 weeks. The male was fine yesterday when I walked him and eagerly got home to try to see her, but we kept them apart. Later in the day he tormented her relentlessly. At 5:30 last night he started to act like he needed to vomit, but had not ate much for three days so just had some yellow vomit. At night he seemed depressed and we felt that it was because he wanted the female. Between 12-4 this morning he died. Do you have no idea what may have happened. He wasn't acting like he was in pain, just like he may have the flu or be depressed, which in hindsight is not his nature. Can you shed some light on this. We worry for the second dog.

I unfortunately don't have any insight into this situation but I read your comment and just had to respond. I can't imagine having to go through such an unexpected loss of my own dog, I imagine that it is confusing and painful. Wishing you my deepest sympathies.

We had a male samoyed who was in very good shape for 12 years. We expected him to live and be active much longer. He also did not eat for 2-3 days and one night became confused and alone. When he became wobbly, we rushed him to an emergency vet clinic where he was diagnosed with a turned stomach. We were told that it is something that happens with large dogs. The doctor did not hold out hope for a successful recovery. We had to put him to sleep. It was awful and we still miss him.
