Well he seems to be eating now, and he doesn't have diaorrhea any more, but he doesn't seem to be gaining any weight. He weighs 700g which the vet says is far too thin for a guinea of his age and size. I guess it's just a long haul!

He was one on 6th Jan. Before his illness he weighed a kilo, then it went down to 750, then 700. He feels very bony but he is trying hard to get fatter (some of us don't need to try he he)

its good he's eating. When Jacques had the same problem she was 1225g before the problem and went down to 905g, She's now normal weight. It did take about 2 months in total to get her back. i'm sure Dr will get there in the end. good luckand keep us posted.
