On the top of the bridge

Hello peeps, your piggy Luna here. 
It was a rough week.

Last Monday we expected to have a nice public holiday. But see what happened. 
I found my sweet bro Lurchi Leopold all weak and sick. He could not walk and not even hold his head straight.

He refused to eat and to drink.

We had to face the fact that he is on the top of the rainbow bridge. 
So we rushed him to the emergency vet.


He got three (!!!) shots.  Antibiotica, Prednisolon and a booster to bring him back on his feetsies.
Back home, we put him under the heating lamp and I kept him company.

We offered him his favorite food but he refused all the goodies. 

I told him that he please please should not let go. That we love him. That we will have a lot of adventures together.

And he drunk some tea... 

My human sissi came to help.

I made sure that all the food she offered to my Lurchi Leopold was best quality.

She finally made him eat a little critical care (special food the vet gave us).
 For the rest of the week we went to our regular vet every day and Lurchi got three shots each visit.

We were really anxious about him.
But see even neighbors pest cat came to support us and to bring the power of the paws. 

After 15 shots and syringe feeding 5 days Lurchi Leopold is back in the game. He has to gain weight now.
But gaining weight is no problem if you ask me.

It was very loud outside this afternoon. Something was going on. Maybe our Dad the policeman comes for a cup of coffee? Ah just kidding. He is not a coffee drinker, he prefers tea :-)

Our feathered friend was not amused.

Please friends and furiends keep fingers and paws crossed for Lurchi Leopold.

  1. Maybe I should have read this first! I am glad that Lurchi is doing better. Do these piggies like to play, with little toys and things?

    Stay well, Lurchi Leopold, from
    Jo, Stella and Zkhat

  2. Oh je, gute Besserung! Unsere Meerschweinchen haben diese Phase leider nie überlebt... Aber bei so einem fürsorglichen geschwisterlichen Zusammenhalt klappt das sicher, ich drücke die Daumen!

    LG Sabine

  9. Ach Pia,
    ich drücke dem kleinen Schwarzen so sehr die Daumen!!!
    Ich kann nur sagen: Erbsenflocken und grüner Mais sind wunderbare Dickmacher und können gut aus der Hand gegeben werden, so dass die arme, verhungernde Luna nicht alles auffuttert....

    Knuddel die beiden von mir!

    Liebe Grüße

  17. Schön, dass Lurchi Leopold sich wieder erholt hat und ich hoffe, das bleibt auch so und er wieder wieder rund und gesund. ;)

  18. Ähm, ein "wieder" sollte ein "wird" sein.

  19. Oh Luna and Pia, sorry to hear that your brother has not been well. We know how serious it is when a pig is not eating. It sounds like you have done a fabulous job though and are a great friendbeast to him. Hope Lurchi Leopold is still hanging on and pulls through!

    Ich drücke ganz fest die Daumen.♥

  23. My fingers are crossed. It's worrisome when pets are ill. I understand. I was outside hunting for a cat at 3 a.m. to no avail.
    Cheers from Cottage Country!

  24. Oooch, liebe Pia, da wünsche ich aber auch eine baldige und gute Besserung für Deine süßen Meerschweinchen! Du hast ja sooooo schöne Fotos von ihnen abgelichtet, die ich mir gerne angeschaut habe!

    Vielen herzlichen Dank für Deine so netten Zeilen in meiner Fotokiste, ich habe mich riesig darüber gefreut und sende aller♥lichste Grüße, Barbara

  25. Dear Pia and Luna, just wanted to let you know that we have thought of you and are hoping that no news is good news.
