It's the last great gift. Some vets open at 7.30am Rads and stay open till 7pm so I think they would make an arrangement. P@H vets are also open Sundays.
He looks ready - he's had a good life and I hope his path is gentle when you take him in x

I'm sorry Forrest is failing but it does sound like it is best to have him pts now - and help him on his way x

Dear All,
Forrest has been to put to sleep by a very nice local vet they where very kind and gentle with him so my wife tells me .
I am stuck here working at in my truck feeling awful, guilty and hate the fact I wasn't there with him, it was for the best after this morning. My wife told me he was trying to rally and got up for a drink or two during the day but it wasn't fair and I wish that nature had taken its course and he coyld have passed quietly in his sleep.

I am so sorry - it feels awful I know. It was the kindest thing though, and he is pain free now and playing free over the rainbow bridge. I cried buckets when I took our hamster to the vet for an op and he didn't come back (many years ago). He's at peace now x

I missed the 2nd page of this thread, I'm glad you had your pet PTS!
Sorry for your loss! Sometimes people don't know any better & let their hamster (or other pets) suffer because they don't want to pay the vet $ to be PTS or other medical expenses.

Sometimes people just think let nature take its course when they don't know any different when it is actually animal cruelty.

The poor little dude also had a tumour in his abdomen that is why he seemed to go down hill so quick...

Cinnamon, Rads is in the Uk. I know you feel strongly and it's a good point - but the little guy has been put to sleep now. Sometimes it's hard for an owner to let go, but if the hamster is suffering it needs doing and Rads has done that now.

Cinnamon bear I suggest you read my other posts how dare you think I would want some peverse sympathy for animal cruelty . I hate animal cruelty beyond a point that you could not comprehend.
I had tried all many of things for our little hammy and pisted but few of them on here. He was put to sleep this afternoon by our local vets post procedure the vet said to my wife that Forrest appeared to have an abdominal tumour on top of being a good 25 months old.

I apologize because I didn't see the 2nd page of your thread, that you already had your pet PTS.

I also have a dwarf with an abdominal tumor so I might be in the same position as you in the near future? Hoping not but I'm prepared to have her PTS at the slightest amount of suffering. She is 20 mo old approximately.
