Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
Oh my!! I am so so sorry!! That is so terrible and very unusual. I would insist on a separate veterinarian to do a Necropsy on your precious Cleo to be sure that this is the cause for her death. It does happen that ligatures can slip and it is possible for them to hemorhage but most of us would have kept Cleo overnight to watch her in intensive care since if it had been caught early, she could have been saved. I am not saying that it would have been prevented for sure but since Cleo was a high risk, it would have been safer for her to spend the night in a facility that would have watched her all night.
Again, I am so sorry....speak to your vet about these circunstances that could have prevented this horrible outcome.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
Sincerely, ***** *****
