Whitney may have passed

Post by GabbiLuvsMice on Sun 03 Jul 2016, 19:16

I was doing some pen time and our dog reached in and grabbed Whitney, she has a small puncture behind her ear. My grandma says she feels a pulse. What do we do? Her eyes are open and we have her in a small cage with Skye, hopefully she is playing dead or in shock. What do I do?

If she's not breathing and she's limp then she's definitely dead. If not, I'd take her to the vet, and quick.

So sorry that happened. That must've been so horrifying. I hope she'll be okay.

We are pretty sure she is gone. I am very devastated, but we will let her sit there for a couple hours just in case. Or else we will be burying her by the fairy garden.

Yeah, if she was in shock you'd still be able to see her breathing Sad Poor thing.

She is gone, her eyes have glazed over. We may bury her tonight or tommorow. This is a weird question to ask, but if I keep her in a freezer, will her body not decompose and save for tomorrow?

She'll be okay in the freezer. I've kept mice in there for a few months when the ground was frozen over the winter. I'm so sorry, Gabbi. Sad

Nice! I live in CA, but I spend time with family out here! I live in the Minnetonka general area.

Oh no, I'm so sorry Gabbi. I wonder what happened. Maybe you could get a necropsy? You'll have to keep her in the fridge rather than the freezer if you want one, but it could tell you what happened. If not, I understand.

We can't really afford procedures and I just want her to be at peace.

I hope you'll be okay. This is a very tragic occurrence, for everyone involved. She'll be at peace.

Of course. Do what you think is best. Though know that usually vets will do necropsies for free in case you ever want one in the future.
