Dog Dies Of Fright In Owner’s Arms After Fireworks Triggers A Panic Attack

Tragedy occurred after an elderly dog suffered a series of panic attacks and ended up passing away in the arms of its owner. The reason for the panic? Fireworks.

Antonella Modasjazh, the owner of the dog named Magui, posted about the tragedy on Facebook, citing her death as a result of her being “old” and “scared.”

Besides posting images of her dying dog, Antonella said her family called for a vet’s help, yet no one came.

The sad story has been shared more than 12,000 times on Facebook, and has amassed thousands of comments.

Antonella wrote, “She was our loved pet! Her name was Magui and she has just died. She was old and was terrified of fireworks. We did not know where to put her while other people were having fun, she was going through a very bad moment. She had an attack, we called all the vets in Esquel to help us but nobody attended us. The dog died in the arms of my son, begging to call anybody to help her.”

Adopt, Sterilize, Teach, an Argentinian dog charity shared the story as a hope of raising awareness.

ADAE wrote, “Your fun terrified her, it generated an inexplicable panic. Your fun killed her. Maui died in the arms of her owner. Her family lost a member of the family.”

In response to the post, several users expressed their frustration at the charities who did not answer their phones.

One commented, “Maybe the fireworks were sold on the black market. Lack of control, poor little dog, how sad, those who love animals know the pain of their loss.”

Another said, “This is also the fault of the irresponsible vets who give numbers for emergencies and never took the calls, the never attend.”

And a third commented, “I am so sorry… I hope that whoever is in charge can do something fast as the firework is killing lots of innocent lives.”

So very sad. As pet owners, we feel deeply to this family’s loss.
