Right now he's only eating very little (having lost almost 100g in the past week), we have to force-feed him instant hay (RodiCare) and hand-feed him vegetables and fruit...

    Hi, my guinea pig is getting on a bit now at about 4/5 years old, I'm worried she's sick or dying as she isn't her normal squeaky self, she has tried to eat but didn't manage to eat much. She has drunk a bit of water too. I put her on the floor and she did have a bit of a run around but no where...
