    Sick OMG, Dora and Olivia are very sick

    Princess_Piggie, Artista and Rywen, Thanks. Everyone on here including the three of you have become almost like family to me and I will miss our daily chats as well. I will try to come on here as much as possible with updates on Sophia and Jasmine when time allows and I will try to not be a...

    Sick OMG, Dora and Olivia are very sick

    After reading what everyone had to say and weighing my options, I have decided to keep Jasmine and Sophia. Thanks again for all the kind wishes and support during this hard time. With my work schedule keeping me pretty busy and starting to limit the time I can spend on here, you probably won't...

    Sick OMG, Dora and Olivia are very sick

    I still haven't decided and if I do decide to rehome them, they will atleast be reunited with their brother Mickey as they would be going to the same home as he did, and I know there taking great care of him. She sends me updates via email all the time about him and how well he's doing. It will...

    Sick OMG, Dora and Olivia are very sick

    You guys were right, Jasmine seemed to know that I was down and was very talkative to me while I took Dora and Olivia's cage down. When I picked her up, she crawled up to my shoulder blade area, and layed out flat while I petted her and kept nugging the bottom of my face with her head. Sophia on...

    It was their space so for now I'm going to leave it empty. I'm sure something will be put there, but not right now.

    It was hard to do, but it had to be done for me to grieve and move on. RIP Dora and Olivia it wont be the same around here without you :(

    Sick OMG, Dora and Olivia are very sick

    Thanks everyone, your really helping me through this. I'm haven't rehomed Sophia and Jasmine yet, and will give it some time. If I were to get a different pet down the line (way way down the line) it would be a while before I do that. I'm currently typing this in my garage as I don't want to go...

    Sick OMG, Dora and Olivia are very sick

    Thanks everyone. I haven't decided what to do yet, but I'm going to give it a couple of days before I decide. It's going to be very hard to take Dora and Olivias cage down when I get home.

    Sick OMG, Dora and Olivia are very sick

    Thanks everyone for your well wishes and your support. The weird thing is when I go home and see there huge cage empty and them not being there wanting their num nums it's going to be very hard. As far as Sophia and Jasmine go, I talked with the lady who took Mickey and she said they would be...

    Sick OMG, Dora and Olivia are very sick

    The vet came out a while ago and it isn't good. They are both hanging in there, but barely and are both in large amounts of pain from what he can tell. He took xrays and both have very enlarged hearts which he says is probably something hereditary since they were both from the same litter and he...

    Sick OMG, Dora and Olivia are very sick

    No change in hay, water or vegetables and nothing illness wise that I can tell becore this. The weird thing is when I got down stairs they were both laying in the igloos making a sound that almost sounded like hooting and both didnt like it when I picked them up, which makes me think that this...

    Sick OMG, Dora and Olivia are very sick

    I dont know. They were making this sound that almost sounded like a hooting sound and that continued while I was picking them up which they didnt like a whole lot, if that makes any sense what so ever.

    Last night everything was fine with them they ate their vegetables and were fin and acted fine during floor and cuddle time before I went to bed.

    Sick OMG! Guinea Pig #3 also died! WTH am I doing wrong? (Long, sorry)

    Sorry for your loss. From what I have read and heard on here is that you never know how healthy a pet store guinea pig really is, plus they are very good at masking illness until it's too late. From your story, it looks like you were doing all the right things, but I would go with another...
