Key Findings from Necropsy.  Report of James McBain, DVM retired, and Stephanie Norman, DVM, PhD

As members of her veterinary team and at the invitation of Friends of Toki, a non profit organization co-founded by Pritam Singh and Charles Vinick, we present key findings from the very detailed necropsy of Tokitae (Toki).  The passing of Toki was a sad event that was strongly felt by all of her care staff and her supporters worldwide. Her death was the reult of multiple degenerative changes resulting from chronic disease. The primary culprit was likely the pneumonia that plagued her for months combined with heart disease and deteriorating kidney function that became apparant as death became imminent.
