I had my guinea pig for 6 years and she was amazing so you couldn't believe how devastated I was, I can't even sleep thank goodness I was up to take her to the vet to put her down which was the worst feeling ever of having to do that. She was fine a couple hours before or so I thought I just had worked 8 hrs so I was going to wait until after my nap to see how she was doing (I had work 6:30-3pm) but I know when I came home she was fine, I could have sworn she was squeezing and happy and I said hi to her and she started chewing on the bar of her cage to get out so I could brush her, her good bowl and water was filled and around 3am this morning I ended up crying to my mother to take me to the vet with hamii cuz she was laying on her side not moving, barely breathing and she had released her own bowels on herself she had diarrhea, she would respond to me and move around a little, she knew I was there for her and I have no idea what had happened to her, she had a little trouble making it up the new ledge I got her cuz her old wooden one was warped. So idk if she had not been eating or something? But she would have told me if she was hungry and also like I said she seemed fine before work. I was thinking that she could have crushed an organ by squeezing under the ledge the way she did with the old wooden one or something but she didn't seem like it was bothering her, I know that guinea pigs don't show any problems until its to late but I really need closure I had his guinea pig since I was 13 and took the best care of her I could and she was a happy guinea Pig loved strawberries and lettuce an to be brushed but about a week ago after her bath I was brushing her and realized her skin was very dry to where patches of it came off and there was fire attached to it.. I don't know what to think and I keep blaming myself for some reason, can someone help please? I haven't slept at all yet and I haven't eaten anything cuz of how upset I am, I feel as though I lost my own child..
