Thank you for your condolences. I picked up her cremains today.

For the sake of completeness and sharing information, these are the higher dosages of pain medications that Dr. Johnson prescribed. Sakura weighed 1170g.

Tramadol 5mg/ml: 0.5 ml orally every 12 hours

Meloxicam 0.5mg/ml: 0.5 ml orally once a day

Do you by any chance still have the blurry picture of the cyst cut open? Referring to your post on page 7, I think.

So terribly sad to have lost this great guinea pig.

Did it appear fleshy? Was there an odor? Was the whitish material at the center part of it or was it thick pus?

I am thinking about the relatively small probable trichofolliculoma Snowflake had:

I don't recall if it had an odor. The interior was rather cheese-like. It wasn't soft or squishy when touched.

This page describes the trichoepithelioma:

They seem to be related hair follicle tumors.
