    Unhappy My friends pig is dying,

    My friend sent this to me last night.




    "She has a respiratory infection, we went to the vet and they said nothing was wrong but we know now that she has an infection. She might die tomorrow if we donít get her treatment. They have antibiotics ready but we might not be able to pick it up until tomorrow, which she might not make it. She has had really loud breathing all day so please, guinea pig lover to guinea pig lover, please pray for Rhythm."


    And sent this to me this morning:


    "I am sorry to inform you that Rhythm is sadly dying as we speak if not dead by the time you get this, itís hard for her to breath and she wonít even take in meds, she wonít move at all.Because of not eating, she has gotten a lot skinnier."


    This is poor Rhythm:
    WHAT CAN I DO?? Please pray for Rhythm

    Re: My friends pig is dying,

    What you can do is urge your friend not to get another guinea pig until she is able to provide health care for it. That's as much a part of responsible pig ownership as providing food and housing. The pig depends on its owner for everything, and it is very unfair to the pig to not provide needed medicines.

    I'm sorry she's losing her pig, but she needs to learn to be more proactive in demanding treatment and getting medicines for it.
