    I'll keep them as long as I can as long as it doesn't cost a fortune all at once.

    If he gets Uri or something short term that's fine

    Gizmo's medical thread

    Re: It's as if he died =/ I just freaked out because he was drinking just a bit more water. But he can be quite the skittish pig. Way more than Truffles. He would freeze for the longest time when he senses danger. So I think after a month of having him maybe he's not as scared anymore. And now...

    Gizmo's medical thread

    It's not like I refuse to take him to the vet. Just about a little more than a week ago I took him to the vet and spent 200 dollars on his strep infection. I do take him, if I feel there is something wrong. But since normal guinea pigs drink 6 to 10 oz of water, and mine drinks probably and...

    Gizmo's medical thread

    Re: It's as if he died =/ I was wondering why he drank more water. He didn't drink like A LOT. But now that I think about it I heard him thumping really loud on the ball...thought he was really thirsty but there isn't much of significant difference. Giz was probably playing with the ball on...

    Re: It's as if he died =/ It's not necessarily wet. Ok I think I just got real worried as a new piggie owner and freaked out. I just wanted what's best for him if I couldn't afford to keep him anymore. HE'S SEEMS FINE! Yay! Not that I can't afford to keep him. Just if he had diabetes. :S But...

    Gizmo's medical thread

    Re: It's as if he died =/ Ok. But before I take him to the vet I want to be sure there are some signs. Would be a bit foolish to bring a healthy guinea pig there o.O Any ideas on what early diabetes would be? Normal eyes vs beginning cataracts? He has red eyes so maybe I thought his eyes had...

    Re: It's as if he died =/ Unless he doesn't have diabetes? Maybe I'm just freaking out for no reason? He seemed to be drinking more water than before. He's at the water bottle more. So I looked it up and that him drinking more water is early signs? Any help? He's not making any hooting noises...

    Gizmo's medical thread

    So I found out Gizmo has diabetes and I cannot afford to pay for the exams testings and insulin costs. I have to give him up. This is why I didn't have pets for the longest time. :sad: I feel so bad, I doubt anyone would want to take him and if the shelters here don't want him, they'd most...

    Infection Giz has made a recovery!

    My Gizmo has seen the vet today and the vet says he is doing really good. He had a strep bacterial infection that could've gotten a lot worst. Possibly pneumonia if it wasn't for my vet's perfect diagnosis. His right eye looks normal again and I haven't heard a single sneeze today. I'm so happy...

    Medications Probiotics for my Guinea Pig?

    Hi, so I can't find much info on guinea pigs and probiotics. My Gizmo is on Bactrim at the moment and I'm wondering how much probiotics to give. Thanks.
