Rusty has been snuffling and sneezing, runny nose and eyes for the past few days. I googled illness in piggies and decided he had an upper respiratory infection. I was thinking it was just old age, but he was still eating. Anyway much to the disgust of hubby (dont tell him it cost £30) I took him to the vets. He had a better check up than I get at the doctors. She listened to his heart and said that was quite strong but there was definite crackling in his lungs. So he has antibiotics, vet also gave him an antibiotic injection. She said now we will need ear plugs as they always squeal. He didnt make a sound, my little soldier, either that or as hubby says they are thick. Fingers crossed I have him for a few more months xx
just found the first photo I have of him and it is dated 28.5.05 and he wasnt tiny so he must be 5 now, ah....

The antibiotics seemed to help with his breathing, but I wast going to give them to him today as they had upset his tum, but he was still lively. I put him in the run in the garden dinner time whilst I cleaned his cage out. I was watching him and he was looking out at the dogs I went up to his run and he asked for something to eat, even though he was sitting on the grass. I gave him some bits of grass and he chomped them. After about half an hour I put him back in his nice clean cage, he ran into his little bed. I came back from shopping about an hour and a quarter later and he was lying up the corner, and had just passed away. I am sure he just fell asleep I sure will miss him...xxx
