    Congested Guinea pig with allergies

    I don't think she has allergies. I'm guessing she has a URI. Get her to a vet ASAP.

    Wheezing Peanut's Medical Thread

    Thank You!!! They always get unlimited hay but ill look into buying them wood chews. The problem is that the only ones they like are the willow balls and they tear those apart in a day and there 3 bucks each.

    Crusty Eyes Guinea pig suddenly acting sick and then getting better, up and down moods

    I had trouble convincing my mom of going to the vet too. Eventually she saw how bad my pig was and took him. As for the situation Anna definitely sounds sick and you should try to get her to the vet ASAP. Also what type of wood are you using?

    Wheezing Peanut's Medical Thread

    Unfortunately I dont have a choice. My mom said the pills were the last thing she would pay for because "Guinea pigs dont live very long" (That do sent include nail trimming).

    Wheezing Peanut's Medical Thread

    UPDATE: The vet called and said she had calculated a new antibiotic for Peanut. She had us buy Baytril 22 Chewable/#7 tablets and told us to give him 1/2 a tablet every 24 hours. We also got a pill shooter to put the pills into his mouth. Questions? Comments? Advice? Concerns?

    UTI/Urinary Tract Infection Antibiotics hadnt worked, Vet says should euthanise

    I'm so sorry!!! Poor thing. Honestly I have no idea what you should do. Its just horrible to have to chose between more antibiotics and/or surgery or euthanizing.
