Yesterday my beloved Pallina flew over the rainbow, she was perfectly fine she had a abscess removed a month an half ago, but she recovered perfectly, she even gained 4 grms after the ops. On wednesday I noticed she had little blood around her private part, run to the vet and he said could be a inflammetion of the womb or the bladder, he suggested to give her 4 days of antibiotic and if it still had this discharges to operate her because it could have been pyometra or a tumor. When I brought her back home she stopped bleeding, the day after the same no discharge, I checked her, the beddings the nest but nothing, it seemed that the antibiotic was working and she was well and happy, wheeling and eating, running around as usual, looking absolutely fine. Then early yesterday morning I woke up and noticed that the wheel had smears of blood, I piched her up from her nest and noticed a large stain of blood, when I picked her up she kept bleeding profusely so I rushed to the vet, he did an emergency surgery trying to stop the bleeding, she survived the op, she woke up but then stopped breathing 15 minutes after. I was devastated, I just could not believe it, she was so well no sign of sickness and then suddendly this. Vet said that he found a large tumor in her womb and that was the cause of the bleeding. Since her sister Spiga passed away in January me and her spent much more time together, she also syncronized her wake time with my "been at home" time. I really did not see this coming, and for some reason I thought she would have make it through the op, they always did her and her sister. But the vet said it was a big op and she was weekened by the blood loss.
Now all my fury babies are over the bridge and I feel so sand and empty I miss her so much, my life is definately less happy without her, she always made me smile, even when I was sad she always managed to cheer me up, just to see her cute sweet little face, her curious eyes, her her scampering around the cage or in the play pen, see her sitting in the food bowl eating her adored salad.
My little Pallina I know you are in a better place now, there with your sister, play well have fun, I will always remeber you and love you as if you were still here, because you will be forever in my hart.
