Please consider giving a rescue pig a home in honour of Zelda. Speaking from experience, the heart heals faster when having the opportunity to help another animal. And there are so many pigs waiting for good homes. Let a loss be a gain.

The only real way to find out what happened is to have a necropsy done.
I am also so sorry about your family losing your dog. People like us realize how much these pets mean to us.. they add so much love and joy to our lives. Unfortunately, the more we love, the higher the price we pay when we lose them.
I´m so sorry. I really am. It´s hard to lose a pet, especially when your kids are really attached to it. I agree with Pinta. In honor of all the nice memories Zelda let you have, I think it would be a great idea to adopt one or two (even better!) homeless pigs. Nicole lives in Mass and has a rescue. I believe she has a whole lot of pigs to choose from.
I know your little pig can,t be replaced, but at least, it will give the kids something nice to look forward to.
You tried everything you could and the timing was working against you. Don´t blame yourself, ok?
Check your facts, girl. you said you´re using a 35cc syringe. That´s almost as big as the pig itself. You probably mean 3.5cc.
My husband thinks I´m nuts but I would like another guinea pig (probably 2).
I´m not familiar with Nicole. Where is her shelter. I know there is a rescue in Haverhill, MA called Wheekers World. I will use a rescue next time.
I strongly suggest you get two pigs of the same sex. They need company and you´ll have double the fun watching them interact.
Loving any creature is always a risk. It´s worth it, though.
Best to you.
- Thanks for the Memories
If your heart is up to it, I do reccomend a new pig. I got a new companion "for Steve" because I wasn´t quite ready to admit I wanted one after I lost Max. But I wouldn´t trade my nutty Jules for anything. He´s no Max, but he brings his own brand of joy.

I like the way you said that... ´he brings his own brand of joy´. Indeed, these words are the truth!
When we first gor her se kept her in my sons room. After a while we realized she would be better of living with the whole family. We had her cage in our living room. She was a new piggie once we moved her. I would never have a piggies cage in my sons room again. Not because he is not good with them but because the piggies get to lonely.
