    Sudden Diarreah guinea pig not eating hay

    My pig lost his cagemate a few days ago and ive been monitoring him to make sure he doesn't get depressed or sick. He has been fine but i noticed last night he wasnt really interested in his hay. I tried guiding him towards it but he will nibble a bit and move on to something else. when i got home from work i noticed He ate all his lettuce today but left cilantro and didnt touch his pellets or water much as well as the hay. he had poops around the cage and i had cleaned before i left to work so i figured he was ok but came back a few minutes later and mushy poops were just made. He keeps going back and forth between eating some pellets and drinking a little water but should i step in with syringe feeding or some cucumbers? I will call the vet in the morning but what can i do now?Click image for larger version.

    Do not feed any veggies. See a vet ASAP. Diarrhea can be deadly very quickly in a guinea pig.

    not sure if it was diarrhea or just mushy poops but i didnt find any this morning. Found a few poops but they were very tiny. I syringe fed him some mushed up pellets and water last night and again in the middle of the morning so. ( 3ml food and water the first time and 5ml each the 2nd time)
