Poor boy - at least you know what is the matter. Incisors are much easier to keep under control so they do not spill over into the back teeth. Guinea pigs can live well without one or even two incisors if necessary. They may need to have their teeth adjusted from time to time, but it is not the kind of problem that you get with overgrown molars and recurring abscesses. You will get fairly good at spotting the early signs of when things are starting to go wrong pretty quickly!Thank you! What pain killers can we give him? He's only a baby still (6months) aahaha, Vet said the problem is his front upper teeth, they're out of line somehow. I thought we'd need to syrine feed.
We just feel so sorry for him
You can give him mushed up pellets as an emergency, but if possible mix it with recovery formula (especially if your boy doesn't like the taste of the formula on its own). Critical Care fine grind is the easiest to use; I would recommend to have some at home, so you can step in whenever needed; the recovery formula acts as hay replacement.Thanks for your reply!
He is gorgeous bless him! We've made an emergency feed before of crush nuggets and warm water, do you think he'll be okay with hay? Or is there some sort of emergency mix with hay we can create?
