Last night, we had to put my 1 year old Silver Flemish Giant Buck Down Humanly... Im still in Shock, im lost. I bought him 2 weeks ago, I notice his head had a very little tilt to it and his ear was drooping very slightly... Hes been doing fine, Hasn't been eating hay tho. Well, bout 4 days ago I found him in his cage with hay twisted around his leg and stressed. I cut the hay off him and put him back into his cage with food and water and a little hay. Well day before yesterday I brought him indoors and put him in a large dog kennel so I could keep tract of him because I noticed his head was SPINNING? I mean as in nerogical problems like. His eyes were going crazy, His head kept looking like he was dizzy like he was reading a book? running in circles. I then realized his poop was little and wettish, OK, I know there not sposs to look little. I own Flemish Giants and there poop is big. His belly in the GI area was Hard like compacted. So I figured he has GI Tract Stasis... I gave him a little oil to try and break it down. Only thing was, he couldn't open his mouth, he kept grinding his teeth in pain and in the middle of the day he let out a weird unusual scream. I was in the room I have been keeping him in almost allday yesterday doing everything I found online to do, I massaged his belly a lot to try to get things going.
About 10 o'clock last night I had to make the decision. He was just hanging on, couldn't open his mouth. He just acted like he was "crazy" ? Like Wasn't all there in the head... Everytime I held him he would just about go limp and his GI tract was so impacted...
I took him outback, and comforted him and balled my eyes out cause I knew he go on any longer... I had to do it, Im still in shock. I sat there for 20 minutes still holding him and balling like a baby.. Just so in shock..
It just all happen so quickly..
