So my 6 year old guinea pig died yesterday R.I.P cicko I am angry because 2 months ago he got 2 lumps under his neck and I visited all vets before the final one that helped us all others where saying he is dead he needs to be euthanized but no we got medicine and we syringe feed him for 2 weeks he was getting better and and like a month ago he was back to his full self with lumps going smaller..bur he lost alot of weight (which he gained back) but it was big schock for body so this summer we choosed to take him on holiday since we tought it would be our last and on the first day of holiday my brother mom and dad went to beach and i stayed in hotel i filled my guineas water and made sure that fan is blowing on him and put some lettuce i fell asleep while watching him eat some lettuce(last time i would see him alive) when i waked up my brother was near his cage (maybe 1 hour later) and said I think cicko isnt feeling well at that point i opened the cage and took him out from his little house he was limp and hot i took him to bathroom and slowly sprayed water but he was already dead.

I'm very sorry that you lost your Guinea Pig,
He was obviously important to you and it's such a blow when he was getting better.
Please try not to be too hard on yourself, it's a terrible situation to have happened.

X Cicko run free over the rainbow bridge x

If you would like to you could post a thread in the rainbow bridge section to remember him by.

Sending lots of hugs your way.

*Hugs*

I'm glad you've found the site then :)
It really is a community, we all feel the pain when someone loses a Piggie, everyone hurts when they hear about it even thought they don't know the piggie themselves.

I'm so sorry, lot of the members are running around with covered ice packs. Unfortunately heat stroke is a killer. It's not your fault it's one of those things you were a good piggy mum. Hugs to you.

Sleep tight little one.

That's understandable, but now you know and have learned from this, you will be better equipped to deal with heat stroke in the future :(

It is hard to tell sometimes with just photos of Guinea pigs and text! :)

He sounds like he had 6 amazing years with you, he would have known how much you loved him and he would have loved you too,
And you got two extra months with him that you might not have if things had turned out differently and like you say he wasn't alone :)

He sounds like he has been laid to rest in a beautiful way :)
He was a very lucky Piggie to have you,
Many people don't care enough but I can tell you cared for him a lot and it shows, I'm sure he knew how much you loved him, he had a brilliant life with you! :)

Our families hearts break for you, we know the feeling first hand ourselves☹ It's devastating, but talking helps. I hate when we were tol , it's just a pig! No , they are family. He was our 10yr olds daughtor, he was her best friend, I hope this starts to ease your pain. Your piggy is our piggy too hugs to u sweetie❤❤
