They only have one left. They started with 6. One died before they called me. I took Itchy and Scratchy but they wouldn't let me have the females. They supposedly treated the mites on the other girls but another died a couple of months ago. They called me today and said that another had died. Apparently their young son got into the cage and either squeezed/dropped her or both and she "died a few days later" without seeing a vet.
These are absolutely the most horrible people I have ever met. They live in a nice house in an affluent neighborhood and are absolute f*cking morons with no regard for animals who are suffering. Soon I will receive news that the last pig has died and there is nothing that I can do about it.
Their reason for calling me? They want to purchase hay. I sent them to Charandmin. I can't, just can't deal with them. I want to rip them apart with my bare hands.
There. I am done with my rant. Thank you. I am going to cuddle Itchy and Scratchy.
We are going to give them SQs and also try the aluminum hydroxide and beet pulp. Both were diagnosed using ultrasound. We don't know if the kidneys failing is because of something hereditary or the extreme dehydration from mites damaged the kidneys.
But anyone who finds pigs in that condition should maybe think about giving SQ fluids as soon as it is possible.
