Pneumonia? Your guinea pig will need a diuretic. Your guinea pig will need to see a veterinarian ASAP.

Please step in with syringe feeding and watering asap, if necessary, little but often round the clock to prevent the guts from closing down. The drooling is not typical for URI, and he really needs to see a vet as soon as possible for a proper examination as the effluent from nose and eyes is likely connected to the excessive drooling. This is an emergency.

Have you got access to an urban out-of-hours service you could have him seen this evening?

If he is not eating you will need to step in with syringe feeding to keep his guts going, I will post a link below.

Is it that your vet is unable to fit him in?

I have just noticed Wiebke post as I am typing so will just post the link.

I think when my Buzz had Pneumonia he used to drool, he was given a diuretic and Zithromax (antibiotic).
