well we got fuzzums to the vets, they thought he had a chest infection or pneumonia so gave him 2 injections and some fluid (as he was dehydrated) but sadly by the time we got outside to the car he had passed away. I am devastated. My poor little man not even a year old and is no longer with us. Thank you for all your help

I've been in tears, I just can't stop thinking about him. Poor little guinea pig. And not only that, I don't know what to do about Roddy? And could the other piggies get it? I miss him

It's a very sad time for you and Roddy, please have a look at this thread https://www.theguineapigforum.co.uk/threads/looking-after-a-bereaved-piggy.109674/

Keep a eye on Roddy, it may be an idea to give him a little extra vitamin C in the form of his favourite bell peppers, as he will be grieving also. Massive hugs to you all... xx

@Wiebke can you suggest anything else..

HUGS!

Here are our tips for bereaved piggies: https://www.theguineapigforum.co.uk/forums/behaviour-and-bonding.21/
Our good standard rescues locator: https://www.theguineapigforum.co.uk/pages/guinea-pig-rescue-locator/

I would however wait at least two weeks before you take a piggy whose companion has died from potentially infectious issues to a rescue for dating to make sure that you don't carry any bugs in. have you got some F10 disinfectant at home? I would recommend to clean and disinfect everything thoroughly and also to keep Roddy away from your other piggies for two weeks (quarantine).
