She was almost 4 and had managed somehow to remove half the front of her eye the vet said that she didn't think treatment would work and that she could try to remove it but we decided to pts there and then due to the level of pain she was in.
Should I return her body to the cage for a couple of hours or even overnight to let her family grieve, or should I bury her straight away?
Albertos eye injury was a grass seed and you should have seen the size of it when we managed to pull it out! Goodness knows what Betty had done. They are such fragile little creatures aren't they she was fine late yesterday afternoon. Dd is gutted.
I'm not surprised your DD is devastated - but GPs go quickly don;t they.
Our GP1 had a huge grass seed from some lovely fresh hay I bought them- it was a whopper too
My DD has a collection of photos of the hogs on her iPhone that she skims through. She found GP1 in the Pighouse when he died (I knew he was winding down) but he'd been fine the day before, had supper, chattered for breakfast. They don't linger
juney it's very noticeable when you have a lone remainer (twice we had a lone boar for 6 days ) at night they were in DD room. By day in the Pighouse. And it's so pitiful to think of them on their own when they've had company.
