    Re: Goodnight Rocky, you will be missed

    Thank you everyone for your kind words.

    Rocky has had his teeth trimmed 3 times by the same vet. The first two times went well.

    I went in this morning to get copies of his files. What puzzled me is why they gave him same dosage of the anesthesia. His weights were very different.

    Weight on his teeth trimming dates
    1/13/11 : 1121 grams
    9/29/11 : 990 grams
    1/14/12 : 879 grams

    Anesthesia given
    30mg Ketamine IM (0.3ml)
    4 mg Diazepam IM (0.8 ml)

    He was 1029 grams on 12/30/11 and started losing a lot of weight on 1/12/12.

    Rocky really can get a lot of air on his popcorns! So cute. I am so sorry for your loss. I know he's teaching his new cavy friends across the Bridge how to popcorn like that.

    My deepest condolences for the loss of your sweet boy! You were trying to help him but it was not to be. I hope you can take some solace from the rest of your herd who still need you and love you dearly.

    What a little darling. He had a fantastic momma, he was so lucky to have you adopt him from the shelter! I am sure he is across the rainbow bridge bragging like crazy about how awesome you were to him.

    RIP dear Rocky

    I just lost my little guy too. But it's always nice to remember the good times. I admit, I laughed pretty hard at Rocky popcorning. He was a giant fluff ball! Or he looks like he was in an 80's hair band. Hehe.

    It always nice to remember the good times.

    Oh Lissie, I am really sorry to read this thread! My heartfelt condolences to you and your husband and the other wee ones.

    What a happy and lucky wee man he was to have found you!! You couldn't have been a better Mom to Rocky in any way at any time. He knows that too.
    Rest in Peace Rocky - you dude

    It's a concern over those anesthesia doses being the same... did you ask the vet the thinking on that?
