Here is the huge stone they removed from Snicker's bladder this afternoon in emergency surgery. It was blocking him, and he could not urinate.

Other than lethargy and not eating last night, he had showed no signs at all of pain or discomfort. The rest of this week he's been fine. His bladder was a mess. Dr. Lenarduzzi took him home with him tonight to watch him and care for him. He said he was in somewhat critical condition.

Just hoping he makes it and that too much damage wasn't done to his little system by this horrible stone. Please remember him, and MoonPie too. He's very lost without his buddy.

Oh, poor Snickers! Hopefully he will make a full recovery. Please give gentle scritches to MoonPie from us.

Dr. Lendarduzzi just called. Snickers died about 20 minutes ago. There is nothing to do but cry.

Oh I am so sorry. You obviously have a caring vet, that was willing to take Snickers home with them for the evening. RIP little piggy.

Thank you everyone. I do have wonderful doctors. Yesterday was OK but today was sad. MoonPie seems to be doing all right, he was the boss pig, and he has two of Snickers' stuffed animals to keep him company. I even saw him popcorn once today. He got to see and nudge Snickers before he went to surgery, so I think he was prepared.

Everybody just got corn silks and husks... I am going to be more on top of everyone's bladder health from now on. I feel like a bad mom for this happening to Snickers. I guess that's not unusual. No one gets high calcium anything, but I know there's much more to it than that.

I wanted to share one of my very favorite photos of him, one that shows of his one white foot. He was such a cutie. He is missed.

So sorry for your loss of Snickers. I hope MoonPie is doing ok without his pal. Hugs to the both of you.

I am so sorry that he didn't pull through, Piggywig. Too many of us have lost beloved piggies to stones. :(

Another favorite, of the two babies together. I believe they were brothers. They were rescues. I hadn't had them so very long when this was taken. This is actually me, holding them. They made such a sweet pair, snuggling. Thank you all for letting me grieve, here.
