    I had to put my beautiful 2 year old baby to sleep today. I won't be ok for a long time. Click image for larger version.

    Re: Rest in peace Sugar

    I had been following your thread about Sugar. I didn't comment because I didn't have anything productive or helpful to add.

    I am so sorry. I was hoping for a turnaround, but perhaps Sugar was just too tired.

    Rest in peace, Sugar. You will be at peace at the Rainbow Bridge with all of your new friends.

    Thanks. It was a more complex issue than the vet he was seeing knew. I was finally able to locate an emergency vet for guinea pigs far from where I live and they told me he had a kidney stone (which the first vet said he didn't have) and pneumonia. Wish the vet had been able to do something about it

    Re: Rest in peace Sugar

    Thanks everyone. I feel really guilty and horrible about what happened. I wish I had done things differently. I wish I had gotten him to the emergency vet sooner. I keep thinking about it over and over. Maybe if I had gotten him to the emergency vet when he first got sick he'd still be here today recovering from a kidney stone operation. But I took him to his normal vet twice and they misdiagnosed what was wrong. I shouldn't have trusted that vet and now I can never make it right.

    You clearly cared deeply for Sugar and were doing your best to help him. Take time to grieve, remember happy times, and let those good thoughts wash over you. Allow yourself to find peace.
