Bacon passed away yesterday..
He survived through the night and they said he was looking very good considering how they hadn't expected him to be able to survive until the surgery.
He got his surgery in the morning and the doctor said he went through his entire digestive system and didn't find any blockage.. so it wasn't the aspen pellets..
However he found that Bacon's kidneys were very red and swollen.
Bacon was given antibiotics and woke up very well from the anasthesia.
The doctor was very hopeful and we left Bacon at the hospital to recuperate while we waited for the results of his kidney biopsy and blood sample analysis.
I was so relieved that I went home and took an hour nap and got some lunch and was about to head out to work and I got the call that Bacon abruptly stopped breathing..
They tried to revive him but it didn't work...
...He is going to be cremated next week.
Thanks everyone for praying for him.. I'm sorry I couldn't give you better news.

I would have questioned the vet in this case. The first time you bring him they don't find blockage. The second time you bring him they find blockage. The third time they actually look inside there is no blockage. Whats the deal with that?

I am very sorry about your hedgie. This is the hardest part about owning a pet. We are all going to have to go through this eventually. =/

Oh sweetheart, I am so sorry to hear this. I'm sitting in class at university right now trying not to cry. :cry: I spent all day yesterday praying for little Bacon.. But in the end, it is all in God's hands, and it was time for Bacon to cross the bridge. My heart goes out to you. I know you didn't have Bacon a very long time, but I am certain he felt your love. I really believe that animals know more than we give them credit for, and Bacon knew how hard you tried to keep him here.

He is happy and healthy now, and someday you will see him again.

I hope that this heartbreak won't discourage you from having more hedgies in the future. They can bring so much joy, and although Bacon will always have a special place in your heart, you have lots of room for more quilly friends. :)

Try to be strong now. We are all here for you if you need us.
