Loss of a pet S & S *20weeks* Due December 29 (boy); 16 kids; Larouche, Quebec 1123 posts

Anyone dealing with the loss of a pet? My tarantula just fell and his abdomen ruptured.....he's slowly dying and there's nothing I can do but make him comfortable :( I know some of you may think that it's weird that I got attached to him or that I'm sad at all but I am, I'm crying.

Is it to late to try and use frist aide? i found this i dont know if it will help ....Household super glue is the most essential item in the tarantula keeper's first aid kit. If your tarantula is injured due to a fall or other mishap, having super glue to mend the wound and clot the flow of hemolymph is imperative. Hemolymph is the tarantula's "blood" and it is a clearish-whitish-pale bluish liquid (depending on who is describing it). Careful application of super glue can even repair ruptures to the abdomen if the injury is caught immediately. ....if not i again am sorry

Thank you, I tried that and his guts are too swollen to go back in his abdomen, but I put some on top in case it keeps them from infection :/
