My baby girl, who has resonantly turned 3 years old,stopped eating for herself over 6 months ago. So if been syringe feeding her around the clock! She had her teeth done under GA 3 times by a rodentologist, but she said it was now effecting her jaw, so would need to consider putting her to sleep as there was nothing else she could do for her. I wasn't happy about this so took her some where else for a second opinion. Unfortunately they basically said the same thing. But i just wasn't ready to give up on her, so i went all the way to Northampton to see Simmon. We have now been twice, and yesterday she made me so extremely happy by eating some soft food for herself. I just wanted to let people know this, so not only so they dont give up but dont get a huge vets bill, which I'm still trying to pay off, when Simmon is alot cheaper and is amazing!

So glad your piggy has started eating, fingers crossed she now has a very speedy recovery. Well done you for not giving up on her.

I am so glad you have been able to get your piggy seen by Simon. He really is amazing and he has worked wonders with so many guinea pigs. You must come and visit us when you are in the area for an appointment. You can meet all the extra special piggies here at TEAS x

We are singing Simon's praises here; he is doing all the piggies at The Excellent Adventure Sanctuary (TEAS) in Northampton and is by now definitely the best and most practised dental guinea pig vet in the country.

Such a great shame that more vets are not as expert as Simon! Just shows that the journey was well worth it for your piggy:). Hope she continues to improve every day.
