    Nutmegs eye seems sunken in

    Hey, one of my guinea pig's eyes looks sunken in and being pushed in by the eyelids. I'm not sure what to do but I've ordered some antibacterial eye ointment and saline for her. I thought it was hay poke at first but it didn't look like it. Any tips or advice? I'm extremely worried for her.

    Guinea pig eye shut

    So my one guinea pig will not open his one eye. I'm not sure what could've happened. He is also squeaking quite a bit. Does anyone know anything that could be wrong or have any advice for me? (He is 4 months old btw)
