My 3 year old boy cat was put down

My cat started vomiting several days ago then the vomit stopped but he was getting weaker. I waited for several days because of the virus outbreak, hoping that he would be able to recover on his own.

When I finally took him to the hospital for emergency treatment, he was really very weak. But he still could walk on his own for couple of feet. I had hoped for hospitalize/surgery.

The doctor took image and blookwork. After that she called and suggested the best choice for the cat is to put him down. I was so shocked and thought that he was too bad to be rescued. So I trusted the doctor and agreed. She even did't mention about the possibility of surgery. Because of the precaution for virus, I was not allowed to go into the hospital. So all the communication was done by phone call.

4:15 admitted to the hospital, 4:55 was put down by the doctor. 1200 charged.

After I received the doctor's note, I started to question myself. Did he really have no possibility to survive the surgery? Have the doctor really tried hard enough to save his life? He was only 3, too young to give up.

I posted the doctor's note here.

I know there is nothing I can do to bring him back. Heart broken, regret....
