We lost Stinky, one of our two guinea pigs late last night. He had been making some slightly different noises for a week or so, but other than that there were no obvious signs that he was sick. Yesterday I came home after a few hours out of the house and he appeared to be having painful little spasms, was not eating his favorite foods, and was very reclusive. We called the emergency vet and drove him an hour to Cornell in the middle of the night. X-rays showed a very large bladder stone/obstruction that would not have been able to pass on its own. For a couple thousand dollars they could have attempted to remove it under general anesthesia, but there was a good chance he still wouldn't make it... So under their guidance, we made the difficult decision to say our goodbyes. He passed comfortably around 4am or so.

I am grateful for the kindness and expertise of the staff at Cornell. I know we made the right choice, but we are devastated. Stinky was a sweetheart and a wonderful companion. His chirping, chattering & cuddling lit up my life.

I just lost a piggy yesterday morning. It really is hard to let go, but it's good to know that they aren't suffering.
