Comment on Grieving the loss of a guinea pig by Michaela H.
I just lost my baby 2 days ago… I noticed him barely eating his hay, pellets and not drinking.. I then noticed blood stains in this cage.. he ended up having a bladder stone. The vet gave us the option but did not recommend surgery because his chances of survival were so slim and he was a senior boy.. I took him home for a few more days since he was still happy. Once I noticed him crying more with every pee or bm and no longer picking at his food I felt like it was time to help him so he wouldn’t suffer longer.. I still question but I know there was nothing I could do.. heart broken and gut wrenching to say the least.. he was always by my side for the 3-1/2 years I was able to love him! I’m glad I have him an amazing spoiled rest of his life when I rescued him.. he ruled the roost. This heartache is so deep. He was my everything. Ty for this site and for others being open about their loss. It helps to not feel so alone. He was absolutely incredible
