Snow is okay! Phew! These selfies were taken the night before Snow’s operation on her teeth yesterday. I have some awesome news, Snow’s tongue is not attached to her cheeks, she had tongue entrapment, so that her tongue was in effect clamped down to the bottom of her mouth by her teeth. She has had surgery yesterday to both her top and bottom teeth, and now her tongue is free and hopefully she should start to put weight back on and not need to go back. She was 8.08 on Fri in weight and 8.03 yesterday. 1KG on 31st of May when she last had her teeth cut. She is eating a lot more this morning and much more lively. Lets look forward to happier times for Snow.
Just to update you. I took my other 3 guineapigs to the vets today.
Because of Peaches’s death yesterday, the vet wanted to check all of my other guineapigs, as Peaches had a lung problem that was passed on genetically and all of them are from the same family.
During this visit, he checked each of my guineapig’s heart, lungs, fur, skin and eyes. I was shocked that he found a skin tumor on Snuggles’s back that was the size of my thumb. She had surgery to remove it, this afternoon. She also had a full body xray.
I am pleased that Snuggles didn’t have a problem with the operation. The xrays showed she has an enlarged heart and a spot on her lungs and that could cause future problems.
The tumor is going to the lab on Monday, to be tested for cancer. It will take a week to get the results back.
Snuggles is going for a check-up on Thursday, before I go away to London for 3 days. My mum is looking after my guineapigs whilst I am away and is attending the check-up with me.
I often believe everything happens for a reason. If Peaches hadn’t died yesterday, I wouldn’t have been asked to take her sister to the vets and the tumor may not have been found until it was too late. It may be, that Peaches, has saved her sister Snuggles’s, life. Bless you Peaches and thanks.
Thank the lord that Snuggles is still with me.
Here are is a photo after Snuggles’s operation.
Until next time, write soon.
