So very sorry. You did everything you were supposed to do. At least he wasn't alone, he had his brother by his side. Hope you and Duke can be a comfort to each other.

Very very sorry for your loss. Agree with others, you've done your best, I would've done the same in your situation. Don't beat yourself up for it. Certain things are beyond our control, please don't feel guilty.

I'm sorry. Don't be hard on yourself, or on your vet. I think sometimes stuff just happens. We do the best we can with the information we have.

Hugs for you and Duke. Duke was a good brother to the end and he will help you recover too. Give yourself a chance to grieve and be kind to yourself. I hope this link helps you feel better.
