Unhappy My pup died during neuter surgery

My little Zipper, my daily laugh, never woke up from his neuter surgery. I had waited until he was 4.5 lbs and 5 mo. We are devastated. It was Christmas Eve. To top it off I got him to try and heal my broken heart as I had lost my 4 yr old chi "Kiwi" when the neighbors dogs-2 pits a rot and a boxer- dug under our fence... I will skip the rest but thankfully her brother escaped the same fate but has suffered the loss.
I am seeking another both for him and myself. We need the spunk back. Is there any advice on the surgery? I am terrified and will not look at dogs that come with the spay/neuter requirement as that decision will be soo much harder this time.

I am devastated for you, what a terrible shock. You need to speak to your vet to give you answers to help you to move on, so so sorry.

I am so so sorry to hear this how awful, my heart goes out to you.

I would also consider an older pup who has already been spayed/neutered xx

I've also never heard of this happening before. I would try to figure out what hapened.

I think a rescue would also be great idea. I think it would be beneficial for you during this time of healing to be saving an animal that needs love and help.

That is so aweful I am very sorry you had to go through this heartache twice
May he rest in doggy heaven
You should really ask the vet to explain what went wrong
Was your pup insured?

I have heard of this happening before actually.
Usually it happens to the smaller dogs, however it's not out of the realm of possible at all.
Did your vet do any pre surgery bloodwork?

I'm terribly sorry for your loss, and I think you can likely find another puppy if you explain to the breeder what has happened, most people are quite flexible given the chance..
