I feel so horrible knowing that he's in all this pain and I can't do anything about it. I don't know what i'd have done if he'd died... I'm going to see him in the weekend (it's Monday) and i'm so nervous that I'm just going to break down and cry. :'( ugh.
So sorry to hear this. Hang in there and try not to worry too much. He's still alive and they can fix almost anything these days. Sending good wishes your way and keep us posted.

My sister-in-law is having a boy. I was hoping for a girl so it wouldn't grow up to act like it's daddy but this isn't really a rant. He is healthy that's the thing that matters.

Thanks all, AND I just found out through my mum that he kept certain bad injuries that's occurred aswell, probably to keep me from stressing out too much. Found out he ripped his liver, bruised his lungs, slight brain bleeding, cartilage and tissue damage and had to have lots of pins put in until he can have more surgery. And that's just what he's told. Gosh I can't sleep over this :'/

Thanks for your support ♥

An ultrasound just showed that my little Guinea Pig Toadie has a mass that there are no options for to treat other than surgery. :( :(

I don't think we are going to do that because she is already almost 6 years old and don't want to stress out her little body.. :(

My rant is: why does this have to happen when nothing else physically seems wrong with her?? She is so happy and active and eating like a pig and it seems like a cruel jest to make her have a huge tumor when she isn't acting sick at all. >:{

Guinea piggies hide feeling ill or hurt, sadly. But you know what... 6 years is a good age for a guinea piggy :) I know it sucks, but it happens. The best thing for you to do, is give her what you can!


My rant: Why is it I am seeing more and more people medicating their fish for silly things? I don't even like medicating my fish if they have a wound (unless the wound is uber deep) and I have never had a problem with clean warm water being my medication for them. :/ It's like people getting 100 flu shots a year whereas I haven't. If absolutely positively needed I will go to a doctor. But otherwise, au naturale for me! (and my fish)

Yes! Animals are amazingly strong with pain! The only symptom she showed was drinking more and peeing more. The vet didn't think she acted like she was in pain, but just was the pressure against her bladder making her go more. 6 is a great age for a Gpig :). I am proud and happy to have had her so long. :)

Thanks for your comforting words.
