We had a heart break experience this morning with one of our babies. It started yesturday when we noticed that he was seeming a bit strange in his behavior, so we held him and loved on him and he fell asleep so we put him in his sleeping bag for the night. This morning we saw that he was worse so we left for the animal hospital. One the way we lost him. The vet asked if we would allow him to perform an autopsy to try and determine what the cause of death was because there were no visible signs of any problems that could have caused his death, so we agreed. Later the vet called and told us that our baby boy had a heart deformity that was most likely gentic and this is what caused him to pass on us at such a young age (4 months oop). I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this kind of loss of a glider. Please PM with comments or related items.... Thanks so much for listening.... Buddy is physically gone, but we will always remember.....

I'm so sorry to hear of Buddy's heart deformity and passing. At least he died knowing he was loved in his short life, up until the very end. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

I've not had experience with this condition in gliders. I did a quick search and found this one post relating to heart faillure: Enlarged Heart. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />
