    Wait, Kenna, what time zone are you in? I'm sorry, but I'm just a wee bit confused.

    I'm assuming she's on whatever time zone you are. I always get the mixed up. I believe it's West coast time @LoveMyHerd

    Re: URI

    SHE DOESNT HAVE A URI!!!!!!! She does have an abcess that's infected tho. She was sadly at a pet store and got attacked and it got infected. Also she us a girl to the max. The vet lifted her up and I saw she's definitely a girl. She even sexted her for me. Also they sampled the abcess and Mocha was very good and got a treat! She also took her first dose of antibiotics and the vet said to give her critical care everyday three times a day. And this vet only does guinea pigs. She also cleaned out Mocha's mouth. I was very pleased

    Re: URI

    Question: Mocha won't eat her critical care. Nor will she eat her pellets. And usally she goes crazy for hay but shes sowing very little interest. I'm going to Email the vet know the morning but I need tips on how to FORCE feed her without hurting her. She's already screamed. She also needs to eat because the vet said she's way under weight. She's just under a new born pups weight when she weighed her. I'll be weighing her daily now. Can someone also give me tips on how to weight and how to measure. Links would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Re: URI

    Mocha has a spinal injury. I had her cuddle sack on a pillow and she just fell out it onto her back. It wasn't high. But before that... This morning she got her legs stuck between the coroaplast and wood pellets. She drags herself so I confined her to a small space. She's still eating and drinking and pooping. What else can I do? My dad won't be home till 7 and the vet won't answer the phone and they're not open till 12:00 tomorrow. I woke up to her wheeking this morning. I feel like this is all my fault

    Please. I don't want to loose my baby. And Bailey will be devastated. She's like a mother to Mocha.

    Re: Mocha's medical thread

    Keep her confined in a small area. Don't let her move around. Is there an emergency vet you can call? How do you know it's a spinal injury without an xray?
