I am so sorry you have lost your pet. The best person to answer the questions you have is the doctor who did your pet’s surgery. He/she can discuss what testing was done prior to anesthesia and how the pet was monitored during the procedure.
I don’t know if you were offered a necropsy (autopsy) but sometime that can give answers in the case of unexpected death although it must be done very soon after. While the doctor may not be able to answer all of your questions, I’m sure there are some that he/she can which can hopefully help you through this tragedy.
Understand that grieving a loss takes time and people do it in different time frames and in different ways. Please take care of yourself and I hope speaking to the doctor will help you. Again, I am so sorry for your loss.
