    Lethargy: Re: Sort of lethargic guinea pig?

    The coconut oil I have been using is cold pressed, but it still hasn’t been super helpful. I’ve tried using epsom salt + water but I’ve only managed to do this twice because she is so squirmy and...

    Lethargy: Re: Sort of lethargic guinea pig?

    I’m so glad I shouldn’t be super worried! Her behaviour is completely normal and she has a big appetite again so I don’t think she will continue to lose much more weight. I thought that if she ever...

    Lethargy: Re: Sort of lethargic guinea pig?

    I think the vet is mainly a small animal one, but is very experienced with rabbits. On their website, they mention many types of exotic animals including rats, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets,...

    Lethargy: Re: Sort of lethargic guinea pig?

    Sorry if I wasn’t making much sense, but she doesn’t for sure have a tumour and she could just have an infection or something. The only test that was done was where they test the poo and there won’t...

    Lethargy: Re: Sort of lethargic guinea pig?

    I got back from the vet a few hours ago and the blood is for sure coming from her intestines. He said she could either have some sort of serious infection, or a tumour:( He prescribed her quite a lot...

    Lethargy: Re: Sort of lethargic guinea pig?

    During the night, I woke up several times thinking I heard Muffin drinking. I have two other guinea pigs, and somehow they all drink out of a water bottle differently but I could have also been...

    Lethargy: Re: Sort of lethargic guinea pig?

    I think she’s gotten a bit worse:( I had her in my lap on one of those puppy pads so I could see if her pee was red when she became hunched over, sort of squealed, and her ears moved. This happened a...

    Lethargy: Re: Sort of lethargic guinea pig?

    I just took her out of her cage to give her some water and I noticed there was blood on her bum. She is also vibrating which she hasn’t done in a long time so I think she is in pain. When I went to...

    Sick: Re: Bella lethargic

    I think my guinea pig might be going through the exact same thing! She won’t drink water on her own and I have no idea why. She will only drink a TINY bit when eating some pellets. The vet said it...

    Lethargy: Re: Sort of lethargic guinea pig?

    She’s doing a lot better! I think she sneezed/coughed a few more times while I was at school and now she is pretty much back to normal. I am still a little concerned about two things though:

    Lethargy: Re: Sort of lethargic guinea pig?

    I was just giving Muffin some water when I think she inhaled some and started coughing. Now her breathing is crackly and I don’t know what I can do. I think I fed it to her too fast. Will this for...

    The exact medication she is getting is 0.15ml of M-eloxin every 24 hours for 5 days, and 0.4ml of Enrofloxacin every 12 hours for a week.

    I just took Muffin in to the vet to get an x-ray, and it turns out she doesnít have any stones!!! (Or any other problems he could see on an x-ray) The vet thinks it could either be a uti or some sort...

    Lethargy: Re: Sort of lethargic guinea pig?

    For some reason, money isn’t even the main problem to my parents, they just don’t usually have time to see a vet during their normal hours and there aren’t any good guinea pig emergency vets. Also is...

    Ugh she was doing really well until today. Since I last posted, her behaviour went back to normal and she was drinking normally until now. Her behaviour is still normal but I noticed she wasn’t...

    Lethargy: Re: Sort of lethargic guinea pig?

    The vet thought that the mites probably actually came from the grass in the yard… we don’t put pesticides in it so that would make sense I think.
