Has this happened to anyone else? I think he had a bad reaction to the sedative. He trembled during and after the procedure. it took him a long time ( 2 hours) to "recover" and get back on his feet. He still trembled 14 hours later. He was gelded at 10:30 am. Didn't get on his feet until 1 pm. this is even with a reversel drug. I checked on him at 2 am before i went to bed. He seems ok, just sluggish and still trembling. I found him dead When I got up this morning. I checked his stitches to see if he had a hernia. They were still intact and no buldge. So I think is was a reaction to the drugs. I am very, very sad about this. I feel so guilty for having this done to him. Should I inform the vet? Is he liable at all? I have had this vet out before and he castrated my goats and sheep with no ill effects. So I trusted him to do the donkey.
