Please can anyone help. My guinea pig has not eaten anything solid for 6 weeks. I know this is incredible but he is only 3 and is surviving on regular syringe feeds of food, water, and diarolyte. He woke up 6 weeks ago and could not eat although he used to go to his bowl and try to pick up food, however even when he managed could not chew it. He has been to the vet and checked, they told me he had no problem visible with teeth or anything else. He didnt improve so was given an anaesthetic and although his teeth were not long they took off what may have been a sharp edge. Still did not improve so he was anaesthetised again and had an x ray which showed no problems with his jaw. I was advised to try Daktarin to deal with a probable thrush infection but he is no better. After starting the daktarin he started to have excessive saliva and frantically grinds his jaw. There is obviously a mouth problem and I think he is in pain despite the prescribed Metacam. I don't know what else to do or try. He is so terribly thin now but does not give in and anxiously awaits his liquidised food (guinea pig food powdered in a grinder mixed with Critical Care and extra Vitamin C). I just keep giving the food and hope that whatever the problem is will get better but he is starving to death and I'm not sure if I'm just prolonging his pain and discomfort. I don't know what is the right thing to do but I love him and don't want to him to be suffering. I will be grateful for any advice or help. I was informed by CCT that he should never have been anaesthetised by the vet but I didnt know this at the time and I had no reason to question the vet when this was suggested. Please can someone help.
