Hello. Can anyone help me please as I cannot seem to find out the answer to my question anywhere else. My lovely Guinea Pig aged 3 yrs, had to be put to sleep 2 weeks ago following an operation 2 weeks previously to remove a bladder stone.
He seemed to be getting better to start with and every avenue was tried to restore him to health but it was decided to spare him from more suffering.
The vet suspected an abcess adjacent to his wound, dispite being on antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. We are so upset at losing him this way. In the vets own words he was such a little fighter. He came to us as one of a badly paired boars, not related, and slightly differing ages.
Can anyone tell me if this operation is ever successful. It seemed such drastic surgery for such a small animal but it was his only chance and so we took it.
