Okay! First of all I know I'm an idiot for this, but I'm having really bad anxiety about this right now. I had my little piggie Lu on my shoulder and she fell nose first into the tile floor, her lip busted and she's making popping noises when breathing and I'm really really scared. All the Emergency Centers for pets in my area are closed and I don't know what to do! Please help me!

Oh Addi - I am so sorry this has happened . Your Guinea pig really needs to be seen by a vet - will you be able to get an appointment soon ?

Firstly I am so sorry that this happened, but accidents do happen so try not to panic about it.
It sounds like she does need to see a vet asap.
Can you call your normal vet and listen o the answerphone - they should provide the number of a 24 hour emergency service. You can ten at least speak to the emergency vet to try and work out if you should bring her in now, or whether it can wait a few hours.
Either was she will need to see a vet to rule ut major injuries.
In the meantime keep her warm (but not hot) and comfortable, and make sure she as food and water nearby.

I hope you were able to get a check over by a vet. My late Bumble did similar (climbed on another piggy to jump out a box I was carrying her in and faceplanted the patio). Its a very traumatic thing for both piggy and owner and I hope any damage is superficial
