Hiya, I am new to this forum but I thought I would give it a try because one of my guineas jumped out of his cage and has slightly bruised lips and his upper front teeth seem to be quite wobbly. I've seen him eat or attempt to eat and I was just wondering if I could get some advice. I am planning on syringe feeding him some whizzed up fruits and veg with high calcium and vitamin C to boost the healing process. I am also considering giving him Arnica to help with the bruising. Would love to hear anyone's thoughts, opinions, and advice.
Thank you
Amelie :)

Please see a vet - wobbly teeth need checking as the roots can be damaged.

Please do not apply arnica unless your vet is OK with it.

80% of the food intake should be hay; when you syringe feed, rather feed mushed up pellets than too much veg. It can cause tummy upsets and diarrhea. You can grate any veg and place it in his mouth.
