I understand how you feel GeeAnn-maybe talking to your dvm will help if you think it's a good idea. I was so distraught and angry with what happened with Angie that I did a necropsy on her and it did resolve some of my questions. For Byron it was even worse. I eventually joined a group complaint against that veterinary practice after I met someone online- there were numerous people/furbabies who had been injured by them in one way or another. But in the end it was useless.. I can take some comfort that the dr. who killed Byron with her fatal error causing him unbearable suffering is no longer there. The dr. who usually treated him wouldn't even speak to us after the fact after treating him for several years.
Even if Riley didn't have a brain tumor it sounds like something was very seriously wrong. I don't think ear infections are going to cause all of those symptoms and seizures. Brain tumors are well known to cause seizures. I so empathize with you, I hope you find peace in your decision at some point, I hope we all do. I agree with CKMP that you need to go easy on yourself because this type of thing can eat you up inside. Hugs to you. <3
