I agree with everyone else, it could have been any number of things.. And I know with my mare, since nobody saw her for at least a few hours before she died, the only indicators we got were that she put up a fuss just to trot, and her belly got big from growing cancer in her abdominal area... But it all wasn't so obvious.. We could say her putting up a fuss and not wanting to trot was because she had come from an abusive home, and her growing belly just looked like a normal hay belly...
And the vets didn't know of course until after she passed away and got a necropsy..
I'm sorry for your loss by the way, and I'm sorry your boy had to go through all that...
