This morning i noticed that Willow my 1 year old guinea pig has got a head tilt. I assume it is an ear infection but it could be worse.
Today being sunday it would cost me £150+ to go to the vets (which i am obviously reluctant to do)
evidently I will take her to the vets tomorrow but I'm so worried that she won't last the night !
How quickly can eat infections kill a guinea pig ? Do you think she will survive until tomorrow?
Any successful stories related to this would make me feel alot better .
Thanks , Emily

Ear infections don't usually kill that quickly, but the sooner you can have one treated, the better the chances of recovery and reversal of the head tilt.
