HI
I have 3 year old female guinea pig who just had bladder stone surgery.....1 stitch incision....but after a week and 1/2 is still not eating on her own, except a few bites of lettuce and hay.. I have been feeding her critical care and water to keep her going. She still seems uncomfortable peeing and a still see a tinge of blood in it. She is just laying around. She responds when I come in with lettuce but she eats very little. She is on .5 baytril for 2 weeks and meloxicam .25 intermittently ...any thoughts

I’m sorry your girl is still unwell. Switch to weighing her (once) daily at the same time and top her up with syringe feed. Was she booked in for a post-surgery review? I would consider popping her back to the vet for a check, especially as she’s still in pain. I hope she starts improving soon.
