Hi MegF.
Thanks alot for the great feedback.
Very insightful information that you have given us.
Hopefully I wount have to take an animal for autopsy again learning from mistakes ;)
,but I will remember to not freeze it if I have to go down that road again.
Unfortunately I don't have clear photos of the kidneys or heart,but due to everyones input,I recon it's safe to say that she died from overfeeding due to her
age and size.
It's a commom mistake and I am sad to say that only after a tragidy like this will we learn.
Many thanks for your post.

Everything seems to be in order,apart from the gallbladder and pancreas that was green in colour.
It seems like the colour spreaded to the ,what appears to be fertile eggmass.It was full of little red vains.
I just was about to ask what the green stuff is.
Sorry for the loss, but at least you could present a valuable biology lesson.
