My pig named chip died today due to my mistake of using bleach in the same room as my guines pigs, I'm a new pig owner so I was unaware it was going to hurt them. But my other pig oreo has been limping, drinking alot of water, has a really messy coat, has white discharge coming from his eyes and hes been extremely lethargic, I put him in a blanket in his playpen while he slowly passes, but I'm having trouble knowing what else to do for him. Please tell me what I can do for my little loaf 🥺..

Hi!

I am ever so sorry. Do you have any out-of-hours vets you can contact?

I'm so sorry this must be really hard for you. I hope you can get him seen by a vet, don't lose hope too soon.
