Our question this week was:

Dr. Jon – my cat has been sick – how can I tell for sure if he is dead?

T.M.


Answer

Hi – thanks for your email. You asked how you can tell if your pet is dead. Well – there are several things. First- look for signs of breathing. Next – feel for a heartbeat. And look at the eyes.

A dead animal will have no breathing, no heartbeat and they eyes are open – and if you touch near the eye – there is no blink reflex.
