Sick Guinea Pig!

Post by Robb Hube » Mon, 30 Aug 1999 04:00:00



Hi I have to guinea pigs and they are both males but lately this summer one
has been getting really skinny and and had trouble keeping his fur clean.
It almost seems like he has diahrea.  My other guinea pig is really healthy.
They are the same age of 4-5 years old.  Does anyone know what is wrong with
my sick guinea pig and how I can help him. If so e-mail me at mailto:

any help will be great thanks.  If I get no responses by tomarrow Morning I
will call the vet and take him in to get checked out.

Robb, please take your piggie to the vet.  It is worth the $25 or so to get
him feeling better.  Linda, Rick

Take him to the vet anyway.  He's an older pig so he may be wasting, but the
diarrhea indicates another problem.

I hope you took your little one to the dr.  I have heard that you should
give dry food if runny.  I am no expert.  I hope he is ok.  Let us know
