Always be 100% sure.

One area where there should NEVER be a mistake is in declaring a pet deceased.  100% is the only option.

In the wee hours of the night, a small chihuahua was hit by a car.  The driver of the car stopped, looked at the tags, and took the pet to the family's home.  He rang the the doorbell, and the family answered.  He told them the accident had happened, and he was so sorry.  The family quickly looked at their pet, and presumed she was dead.  They left her on the doorstep to bury the next morning.

The next morning, when the family went outside to bury her, the found the unimaginable.  She was still BREATHING.

They rushed her to our facility, and she is currently being treated for severe head trauma, shock, exposure and her prognosis is uncertain. 

It's almost too sad to believe.
