Default Picture of conjoined twin babies (warning, very graphic)

Here are the pictures from Terrah's spay, of her surviving kit Mia, and the twins that were conjoined and did not make it. The one baby's head was ripped open while Terrah was trying to deliver; the other baby was fully intact.

Here is the vet operating. If you live in Minnesota or near the Twin Cities at all, and EVER have an animal emergency, I recommend the Animal Emergency Clinic there.

Here is Terrah post-op

And the Princess Mia...I am so thankful for her, and thankful that she was born first. If she had been trapped behind the twins, I know she wouldn't have survived.

Wow, they really were attached right at the chest. Poor mama chin! There's just no way she could have gotten that out on her own.

Thanks for the pictures, they're interesting even if the first one is a bit sad. They would never have been able to survive stuck together like that.

No, they wouldn't have been able to survive. I do wonder how they died though...if they were dead in-utero, or if they died when she tried to deliver the first one and ripped it open, or what. I feel awful that it happened, but I know it was a once in a lifetime fluke. (I HOPE! I do NOT want to go through this again!)

And I feel bad that I never checked to see if they were boys or girls. Poor little babies.

That's nuts Tasha! I'm happy Mia's doing well and I hope Mama recovers from her spay without a hitch. You should definitely send that first picture to Nicole (Riven) for her website about "bad breeding" experiences.

I'm sorry the twins would have been beautiful. Mom and Princess certainly are. Thanks for posting those pics, I'm sure it wasn't easy to do that. I do believe the twins are having a wonderful time racing around in Chinny heaven.
Who says home sales are down? House sales are nomtastic in the chewy chinchilla world.

Mia is beautimuss Tash. I hope everything goes well with them.
Never argue with idiots. They will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
