I was so sorry to hear about Patches. I looked at his picture and he
looks so like Quincy, my first guinea pig. I know it's very
difficult for you right now. You feel a lot of guilt and what ifs.
Let me say that my third guinea pig Wilbur had a tooth problem like
Patches. She regularly had her teeth clipped without anistheitc
wrapped in a towel with no lasting consequences other than a wounded
ego. (She would get mad at me afterwards.)
If anything it may have been other health problems caused by the
malocclusion her underlying symptoms. I know it is incredibly hard to
loose a loved guinea pig.
Please accept my condolences and don't blame yourself.
