    Guinea pig wanted to eat, had malocclusion, now doesn't want to eat.

    He was doing so much better. He wasn't eating but he wanted to. He no longer wants to. He won't close his mouth with syringe feeds, he's losing weight. It feels like it happened overnight. He stopped pooping all of a sudden. We took him to 3 hospitals. When I last saw him, about 2 days ago...

    Weird Chewing

    Hi everyone, Last night, I noticed two of my guinea pigs chewing in a very exaggerated form. Lips pulled back and their ears moving back as they’re chewing sometimes.
