Junior Guinea Pig
- Nov 11, 2016
on Sunday night I took my guinea pig Warp to an emergency vet, because he was not eating, drinking or moving from his spot in the corner, he also suddenly had rough dirty looking hair and receded eyes. None had the know how to do anything but provide some fluids and antibiotics. On Monday morning I took him to his usual vet, who said that Warps organs (kidneys stomach etc) were healthy and said the probable cause was a hairball, he gave us Acute Care which I’m supposed to feed him 4 times a day (I chose the times 9, am 12pm, 6pm, and 9pm) and also some cat anti hair ball medicine which he said to give a small amount 2 times a day, I also gave Warp some probiotics. The feedings seem to help him but I’ve noticed his breathing is audible and he also is making a sort of soft grunt with each breath. I also noticed he tried to eat some of the grass I had put out for him but it’s just hanging from his mouth. Any advice for his recovery, opinions on my vets diagnosis, or ideas on his breathing would be very helpful! Thank you very much.
