View Full Version : I have to put her down... but

12-13-2008, 09:03 AM
I have to put my gerbil down, she is breathing out of her mouth which is labored breathing (just took her to the vet a few days ago and she's gotten significantly worse) and can't eat and can barely sleep.

the only problem is that I am so upset, I am about to vomit... I can't make the drive by myself, I have to wait until later in the afternoon to take her because I can't drive her that distance alone. I am SO upset I am sick.

Am I a bad person because I have to wait????? Is this inhumane of me??? Waiting is only making me feel worse but I can't physically do it alone... :( :( :(
