My cavy is sick

Rate this Entry
Hey everyone,

Marceline is sick. Her eyes are watery and her nose and ears are dirty. She also almost vomited today. I'm going to call the vet tomorrow to get her checked ASAP. I hope it's nothing serious, but we just have to wait and find out.

    Guinea pigs can not vomit, so it was probably something else. Spasm?

    oh shit! I had absolutely no idea guinea pigs can't vomit. I feel pretty stupid right now. Thank you for correcting me. If she wasn't vomiting I think it was some sort of cough attack? All I know if that it didn't look okay and I'm taking her to the vet. Thank you for replying

    My piggy Sammy has had this, its like a lil barky cough / gagging noise, usually this is due to him eating to fast but also due to his teeth as hes had to have his teeth sorted twice plus he is prone to chestyness.
    His symptoms are usually wheezing / drooling / coughing / watery eyes, he drinks alot but still eats, can be quite tired but playful at other times.
    He gets daily painkillers and whenever hes wheezy or extra drooly I'm allowed to give him antibiotics that are kept in the fridge, I just have to contact the vet as and when he needs further meds but he gets a lil mot from her to.
    I'm now currently thinking hes Diabetic as have contacted the vet as he has watery eyes but now also cloudy so awaiting a reply on if he needs to be seen :S
    Hows Marceline doing?
