Hi, I can help you with your question today.
Are you concerned that your dog had an overdose of medication?
OK, it is possible that she already had kidney issues, and that the sedation pushed her over the edge. It is also possible that a combination of anesthesia and medications did this. A few more details about Friday would be helpful.
What do you mean she had a "scan"?
Do you know if they just sedated her, or if she was under total anesthesia?
OK. What was the purpose of the ultrasound? Was she having an issue with something prior to Friday?
Was she drinking any more than usual?
Do you know if they had a urine sample from her for testing on Monday or Friday>
Did they tell you how concentrated it was?
I think it would be best if we could get some more information from her medical record.
I would really like to see the results of any testing including the urine, and previous blood tests, and the ultrasound.
I would also like to see information regarding any medications used for sedation and the doses they gave her.
I would ask the vet for a copy of her medical record. Just as with humans, it is your personal property and they must release it to you.
I see. Well, unfortunately, with a lack of information, I don't think we can say with certainty if they caused the problem or if they simply ignored that she was deteriorating in their care.
I do think, though, that this would be something appropriate to bring up to the board of veterinary medicine in your state.
At the very least, they have shown a lack of appropriate record keeping.
At worst, they may have been negligent in your girl's care.
Yes, that doesn't sound like a normal response...
I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope that you can find some comfort in the good memories you have of her.
It's never easy to lose a pet, but it's even more difficult to lose her at such a young age.

It will depend on the hospital policy. Some may just print it out on the spot, but others may require approval through a vet, manager, or even the owner of the hospital.
I'm glad I could be here with you tonight. You're welcome. I hope you find peace.
