I'm very sorry for your loss. There's normally guilt when we lose our family pets, but this must be so traumatic.
I want you to know, based on your experience, I will be reviewing with my husband how to care for our pigs. I would hate for an uplanned situation (like you had) cause him to guess at what is required. Prior to this, his only interface with them is holding them during impaction cleaning or nail clipping, waving his fingers at them and saying "Hello Hamsters!". I will also follow this up with a printed guideline.
You have shared a very personal tragedy, but also brought to light something that could happen to any of us.
Your family is in my thoughts.
My daughter has been reassured it's not her fault. She did it with my husband's approval, so she'll be okay.

I'm terribly sorry for your loss, and I have been in both situations before. As the one who didn't know, and the one who was trying to comfort another who didn't know.
I would not have thought that amount to be dangerous. I can't help but to think there was a mitigating or aggrivating factor involved.
Thanks, and I'm so sorry, that must have been so sad :(
We feed a small amount of banana every now and then. At most, my 12 pigs would share half a banana when we feed it. I definitely think it's an in moderation food, which is fine in small amounts occasionally.
