Dog put down and then wakes up...

Matt Olivarez of Redford, Michigan had to do what every animal owner dreads – he had to put his dog to sleep. Now he may have to do it all over again.

Last Saturday, Matt took his 10-year-old Rottweiler, Mia, to the vet. Mia has spinal problems and is barely able to walk. Matt’s vet recommended the family dog be put down because nothing could be done to ease her pain.

Matt says he watched as his beloved Mia was given two shots. Moments later Mia closed her eyes and it appeared she was gone. Matt says the vet declared her deceased.

Because Mia is so important to his wife and two young children, Matt brought the dog home so the family could give her a burial. But the next morning Matt went into the garage where he put Mia’s body and she was awake.

Now Matt is faced with a gut-wrenching decision – does he go back to the vet and put the dog down again.

The vet’s office where the procedure was performed. We were told there would be no comment until it could be verified that it was Mia that survived the shots.
