Missing My Sweet Boy Smaug

Not open for further replies.
I lost my sweet boy Smaug a couple days ago to a cancer called Chondrosarcoma (a bone cancer) He had a swollen finger amputated on February 4th, and this is what the biopsy results came back as. I was stroking his back on Thursday and noticed that he had a giant hard lump where his elbow hits his side. It was not there last month when x-rays were done. It ended up being the same cancer. It was coming from a rib. It grew really fast, and was the size of a grape. They could have done more surgery to remove it, put we decided to let him go because it would have been really hard on him, and there was a good chance another one might have grown somewhere else. He wasn't eating very well, and he was hardly moving around. I sure will miss my sweet boy. He brought me much comfort as I am living with my own bone cancer called Multiple Myeloma.

Thank you Karrie. I am doing well and have been in remission for over a year. Smauggie was such a big part of my day. He was a great snuggler.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
Mirage entered brumation yesterday, I'm gonna miss hanging out with my little guy.
