Mine originally had a very bad uri in may and are still recovering from it... my pig pepper would hoot and wheeze especially when the cage had just been filled with woodshavings or when it was close to clean out day. She also had a very crusty eye. Since changing from woodshavings the hooting and wheezing has almost disappeared completely and the only thing she has left is a crusty eye/ slight crusty nose.
No, there isn't. You have to ask your vet whether and what product they think may be safe to use. True allergies in guinea pigs are rare.Just a quickie for anyone who may know, is there a antihistamine or anything of the sort for guniea pigs?
The baytril dosage depends on what it is being used against as well as the body weight. if you are not happy with the progress, then please contact your vet. PLease keep in mind that we haven't seen your girl and cannot comment on your vet's findings and their reasoning unless it is a standard situation.That's a shame! I didn't think there was anything because I did a search on the forum.
I'm wondering if the dose of Baytril for Fudge is too small to tackle anything that is there. She weighs 750grams and they have given me the 2.5 percent Baytril and 0.14 twice a day. I don't know if I should ring them and ask to up it or shall I just do it myself? What's your thoughts? It's like the dose now is stopping it from getting worse but also not strong enough to kill the bacteria or whatever is happening.
I have them both on the floor right next to my bed. I just took the top of the cage off and put them togetherThe issue with (some branches of) pets at home is they do some times sell ill or pregnant piggies. They are from breeders but we don’t know what those breeders’ standards are like. I have to say I was put off by then when I went into the branch looking for my first piggies. Having said all that, there are some on here who got them from PAH. Some came with issues but ended up living well. Some haven’t. So I guess it’s a bit hit and miss. It’s not all branches though.
I don’t know if I would have separated them. If you’ve decided to do that then you can’t put them together for play time and separate afterwards. When you come to putting them together you will have to go through the introduction on neutral territory etc.
No, the poorly one was on her own on the floor for no more than ten minutes and she looked lost, so I put her friend in with her for the night. Bedding was changed to clean towels. She's had a much better night, a few massive sneezes etc and seems ok at the moment, but every time I say this she gets bad with the congestion etc. Maybe the antibiotics are working, but she's been on them for over 6 days now!But if you’re going to keep them separate during the rest of the day/night then you can’t keep putting them together. Each meeting is like a bonding session for them, which is interrupted. It can be/is stressful for them. Also, they may become territorial as they may feel the other piggy is invading their space. Did you just split the cage, and did you change the bedding?
