I'm not very good in English, but I'll try to explain it. Sorry if you can't understand it xD

Poelia (the right one) had something with her teeth. Not the front teeth, but the ones back in her throat (I don't know what it's called in English). They kept growing REALLY fast, so that they grew over her tongue and she couldn't eat. She was operated by the vet three times (in four months) because they just grew SO fast... It was the best for her to put her to sleep, because otherwise she had to go under anesthesia once every month to get operated, and that's really bad for a guineapig's health, so we decided together with the vet that this was the best for her...


Zoey (the left one) was eating very bad the days after Poelia died (Zoey knew Poelia was dead, because I showed her Poelia's body to let her understand). We thought that she ate so bad because she was sad because Poelia was gone. But when I cleaned the cage a few days later, she didn't move, but she wasn't dead either. I picked her up and she just layed in my hand, she didn't reacted. After a minute she started shaking very badly, and I was home alone so I called my parents. While my parents were on their way home, I tried to make Zoey as comfortable as possible, but when I tried to pet her, she bit me. She NEVER did that before, and that was the moment I realised it was really bad. When my parents came home, we called the emergency care for pets (it was on a sunday, so the normal vet was closed). On our way to the vet the shaking got worse, but she was still alive. When we arrived at the vet, the vet began to examine her and she found out that Zoey had air/airbubbles in her abdomen. She took the airbubbles out and gave her painkillers. Zoey calmed down a bit, and the shaking was almost gone. I had hope again that she would survive, but somewhere on our way between the vet and home she did die...

I was really broken to lose both of my little friends in one week. I see my pets as my children (which most people don't understand) and I was really upset about it. I'm still trying to get over it, but I thing that's impossible.

I've been through this kind of thing many times over the years with different kinds of pets. It's never easy, some of the circumstances can leave one traumatized in some way, I've been through that a few times with pet cats. (We too consider our pets family members) The sense of loss can lessen over time but it never fully goes away.
