Sorry about your daughter's dog. It's always hard when the dog dies. The best way to help her is to get a puppy same breed.

Unfortunately, without a thorough necropsy at the vet's (basically an autopsy on an animal), it's impossible to say what happened in these situations. Even a necropsy doesn't always give answers. I'm so sorry you're going through this.

Not everyone grieves the same way. Some people find bringing in a new dog right away is healing, while others will find it extremely stressful and a constant reminder of what they lost. Your daughter may feel ready for a new dog now, but may need months or years. Some people never want to get the same breed again after they've had a traumatic loss. Let your daughter know you support her and that it's okay to grieve, and ask her if there's anything you can do for her right now - she'll know best what she needs.
