If this was caught before the top teeth were growing into his bottom jaws, I think it could have been controlled. This is obviously malo. I can't say he didn't have things to chew on from his old owner. All cages they came in had wooden huts and other chew toys.
We know this happens with some rodents, so I think I will go in and speak to the tech about putting him to sleep.
Hugs you guys. I'm at a loss. Don't know if what I'm doing if right, but my gut is telling me it is and I think I need to listen to it this time.
Mandy... I have only put one animal to sleep in all my 57 years of life
and that was a little mouse called Lilly
I cried all the way to the vet , I asked myself ..who am I to play GOD
and I struggled as I kissed her head,,and the doctor came back with her
wrapped in a towel.
I must say though.. she was suffering, she couldnt walk, she had labored breathing, she had lumps on her.. probably cancer
and the peaceful body that was returned to me was just that ...peaceful.
I know there are philosophies and religions all that explain what happens after we pass
and we of course often quote the "rainbow bridge"
Personally though I have "faith" I cant with all honesty tell you where we go, if we go, when we die
but I can tell you with 100 percent certainty
when a guardian of a pet , like you ...who loves with every morsel of their being, who is knowledgeable, who has asked an expert or two their opinion
gives a gift of taking pain and suffering away
you have done the right thing.
You know pets..
teeth overgrown like that may be able to be filed
but if he has stopped eating, and in stasis ..theres nothing any doctor
that I know on this planet can do.
We/ I am with you with the emotional choice you might make today
do it with your kindness and you will be doing the work of angels
