This week we received all research results regarding the unexpected death of Cosmo. Heart, lungs, brains, spleen, liver, aorta, arteries, tissue and blood are investigated and no (hereditary) defects came out. We also send a bloodsample to the States (NC State Veterinary Hospital) to test for Rhodesian Ridgeback Inherited Arrhythmia, which came out negative. It's hard to understand and accept, but in the end, after all this testing, we are sure no defects caused his death. We wish his owners strength to cope with this terrible loss. Cosmo will never been forgotten.
We lost our beautiful Cosmo due to a sudden death accident. His owner ordered a full autopsy panel including RR IVA blood research
in the United States. As soon as we have the official results we'll publish here and on facebook.
For now the unofficial results don't give any clue to the cause of his death.
I wish his owners very much strength to cope with this horrible loss. We are all devastated..
