Q. I recently had my dog put to sleep 1-30-16 when she was euthanized she whined a long whine and posterized is this normal if not what went wrong

A. Sometimes an animal will move even after they've passed away. It's a muscle contraction, nothing more, I've had it happen with my own pets. I am very sorry for your loss. It's a difficult decision to make but letting your pet go to end their suffering is always the correct decision.
