I took Spencer to the vet on Saturday to be neutered, so that I could get him a female rattie friend, and while on the operating table, he stopped breathing.
The vet said that he stopped breathing almost as soon as the gas was put on him, and, even though they gave him oxygen, they were unable to resusitate him. :(

I feel so bad for putting him through the surgery and blame myself for his death.

I'm having a very hard time dealing with this right now...

Rest in Peace little Spencer man.... Mommy loves you and misses you.

:( :(

Oh no!!! Spencer! I wonder what happened! That's so terrible... :( We miss you, Spence!

Cori, please don't blame yourself. It's hard not to, but you need to realize that things happen. You didn't know that it was going to harm him... what happens happens. :( *hugs*

OMG, I am so sorry ::hugs:: Please don't blame yourself, it's NOT your fault. You didn't know this would happen! You were thinking of HIS well being by wanting to get him a friend.

Try to focus on all the good things you and him shared, I know he loved you.

Oh dear, poor Spencer, and poor you. You were doing the right thing, and no one can know if a certain pet is going to react badly to anesthesia. Play sweetly at the Rainbow Bridge, Spencer!

Oh how awful for you, you poor thing, I can imagine how bad you must be feeling, but don't be too hard on yourself, you were not to know and you were being a responsible pet owner.

I can appreciate how difficult this is for you to accept, and just wanted to send my love and hugs to you at this sad time, RIP beautiful little rattie.

:eek: wow.. I'm very sorry!!
:mad: vet... vet is vet! you made me realize to check before I let my animals go to them!
:( NEVER is your fault if you knew..
:D spence's in peaceful place, he's watching over you, sqeauking at every color of rainbow! honestly it's best than suffering with tumor/cancer. that's how ALL my 6 ratties died! SO hard watching them breathing less and less.
:) give Minnie, Star & Anya some squeaks for me, thanks!
:cool: *get-well-hugs* to you!
