The vet administered the drugs, and as I understand it, the carotid artery quite deep and would not usually be confused with the jugular. Also, is it not true that if the reversal is given in an artery that the resulting heart attack is almost instantaneous?? I'm not sure- just asking. In the days before our squeeze, we also did a fair amount of velveting under general and thought we knew what we were doing. Like you, we've put down in the neighborhood of perhaps 100 over the years, including those needing treatment, etc. And had never had a loss. I had written off last years' fatality as the law of averages, but it's getting tougher to accept after this past weeks' events. Thanks so much for your input.
