I'm new to this forum, I made it today because I'm desperate for some support and advice from fellow guinea pig owners. Saturday the 4th of July I noticed that Cali was bleeding from her genital area, not excessively but she was leaving little drops of blood on her bedding. I was very concerned thinking it could be a UTI, bladder stones or ovarian cancer so I rushed to the emergency vet. At this point she was still eating, drinking, pooping and acting exactly the same. After an x-ray it showed that she had severe inflammation around her stomach and intestines as well as many large pockets of gas. I was beyond shocked as Cali hadn't bloated up quite the way I've heard of other pigs showing, even the vet didn't expect bloat to this extent. She's been prescribed 0.28 g of Sucralfate 3 times a day and 0.22 g of Metronidazole 2 times a day. On top of this I'm I'm giving 1ml of baby ovol which is 40 g of Simethicone 3 times a day, as well as subcutaneous fluids about once a day but I haven't been able to give it consistently because I struggle to do it alone. So about one full day into all the medications the bleeding stopped completely but Cali stopped eating her pellets, started eating less hay and stopped pooping for one afternoon as well. I'm glad the bleeding stopped but I suspect that she might have an ovarian tumor or cyst that the bloat aggravated, I'm not financially able to deal with this so I'm just trying to give her a comfortable life. Since the 6th I've started feeding her about 40 g of critical care daily. I suspect that the medications might explain her lack of eating more than the bloat, as treatment seems to be going well and shes pooping again! I bought a vibrator to give her tummy massages after giving her ovol which seems to really help and I can feel a noticeable difference in her belly area. Yesterday the 8th I finally was able to get my hands on some bene bac which is a probiotic that I'm planning on giving every second day as directed. So here we are now, I'm still syringe feeding critical care which she takes enthusiastically but refuses to eat on her own , we have one more day of Sucralfate, another week of Metronidazole and I'm planning on giving ovol until I'm certain shes has significantly less gas. I've stopped all veggies except an occasional leaf of lettuce to keep her morale up but I don't know where to go from here, how can I tempt her back into eating herself, even if its just critical care from a bowl? I know shes probably not hungry enough to eat herself because I'm hand feeding her multiple times a day but I'm scared to stop or decrease the amount and risk gut stasis. I'm beyond happy shes pooping regularly but they still arent back to normal, we get a couple of regular ones mixed in with long banana shaped ones and very tiny tiny ones but the color does seem normal.
