Sherlock is doing all right. He had his dental procedure, had the back teeth trimmed because they were growing over his tongue. He still isn’t eating by himself or using his water bottle. But he tries to eat still and has gone up to his water bottle a couple times sniffs it.
.
.
He also got his cyst on his bum cleaned out and covered with this special ointment that will get the skin to start closing in and healing itself. That should take a week or so. .
.
What I’m waiting on mainly is for those front incisors to grow back and get sharp again so he can easily pick stuff up and cut food. The previous vet has trimmed them too short. That’s been the main problem.
.
.
But Sherlock has been very timid in his biting, he bites very softly and not with much pressure. Might still be sore from the procedure.

Little buddy is getting a dental procedure done at 10am. His back teeth are growing over his tongue and he hasn’t been eating on his own. So the vet is gonna trim down those teefers and also remove this benign lump he’s had on his bum for so long. .
.
I had taken him to this other vet on Friday and that guy trimmed down his front teeth (the bottom ones were pretty long) but he told me that everything else looked fine. Lo and behold it wasn’t, and now his front incisors are a bit too short. Three days later Sherlock still wasn’t eating on his own, though showing great interest in trying, and still showed signs of pain in his mouth. .
.
The new vet noticed it right away after examining inside his mouth. Super impressed and excited for this procedure so that my buddy can get back to his normal gluttonous self. .

Anyone know what this white is underneath his eye? Noticed it this morning but I originally thought it was just the liquid that normally comes out for cleaning, but it's not liquid it seems part of the eye itself. Going to take him to the vets in the morning anyway.

Our pretty old lady goes back to the vet on Friday. She's doing ok but we haven't seen much change other than her being a bit more active. Probably because of the pain meds. At this point I think the only thing we can do is give her supportive care until she shows a decline in her quality of life.

GUINEA PIG ACCOUNTS PLEASE HELP ME

I woke up this morning to give my piggies their fresh veggies and saw this on Marshall’s back and I’m so incredibly scared. He’s always been sensitive on that now bald patch on his back but never have I seen this. I’m so scared and worried. Please help. #guineapig #guineapighealth #poorlilguy

Old photo of Mr. Marsh, but update: he seems to have cleaned off the blood on his back and actually seems more up and about and popcorn-y since I last checked up on him. My baby did a bit of research and said it could possibly be a fungal infection or something else. I’m not sure what happens still and I’m really not sure why he’s acting more bubbly, but I’m going to call the vet to see if we can get my lil buddy seen. I’m worried about him. He’s always had a sensitive patch on his back (that’s where the open wound is now), but I’ve never seen it bare and open until today. Please keep my fur child in your thoughts until @valiofdeth and I figure out what’s going on #guineapig #guineapighealth #poorlilguy

*Here's some very important information on the Sensitivity of Guinea Pigs to Certain Antibiotics!* -- This is why having a knowledgeable, exotic OR alternative medicine (homeopathic) veterinarian is a necessity as a caring guinea pig owner. -- Guinea pigs are unusually sensitive to certain antibiotics, whether they are given orally or by injection.
The major way in which certain antibiotics cause reactions is by altering the normal microbial balance within the gastrointestinal tract. Once the normal intertestional microfloral balance has been upset, certain bacteria multiply to abnormally large numbers. The multiplying bacteria produce harmful chemicals that have lethal effects. Certain antibiotics are directly toxic and do not alter the microbial balance within the GI track, these should never ever be given to a guinea pig.
Potentially harmful antibiotics include (but are not limited to!) ampicillin, penicillin, bactiracin, erythromycin, lincomycin, gentamincin, clindamycin, streptomycin, vancomycin and sometimes tetraycline.
Antibiotics and other medicines should NEVER be given to guinea pigs unless prescribed by a knowledgeable exotic or altenative medicine veterinarian.
DO NOT BE AFRAID TO ASK YOUR VET QUESTIONS ABOUT THE TREATMENTS THEY SUGGEST. Animals do not have a voice and are depending on you to provide the best care possible, it is important to find them a well educated vet that is able to properly and correctly service them.

Our new addition Phoebe went to the vet today and has slight GI stasis. So we have her on some meds to get her gut moving better as well as an antibiotic for what looks like a mild URI. Good news is she's still been eating some and drinking a lot but she was having some reflux and soft poos because the food is not moving through her fast enough. They could see lots of food and some built up gas on her xray. Hopefully this will get her back on the right track and we will recheck in 2 weeks unless needed sooner.

Starfire came to work with me for her first wellness exam. Raven got to come with her. They’re a little nervous, but Starfire got a clean bill of health. 👏

Let’s talk Teeth!
Guinea Pigs have 20 teeth in total! - A pair of upper and lower incisors
- No canines
- A pair of upper and lower premolars
- Three pairs of upper and lower molars

This is why hay is very important part of their diet. Hay is the only and best way to keep their teeth (which constantly grow) in good shape! Provide piles of hay in your Guinea Pigs cage, hay racks/holders are dangerous and do not hold enough for them. It’s 80% of diet.
Guinea Pigs are naturally burrowing animals they love to hide in hay, use it as a bed and eat it. What we think is mess is only our imagination, Guinea Pigs prefer to be in mess. They are pigs after all! All you need to do is spot clean wet hay daily. (Buying in bulk helps)
Toys help very little. What we think toys do, may not be that important. Toys are good to provide for mental stimulation but not every guinea Pig will play or chew on toys. “Say HAY for a healthy smile “🌿 #smallpetselect #caviesofinstagram #guineapig #guineapigs #sunshinecavies #pets #petblog #cavy #caviesofig #guineapighealth #pets #petsofinstagram #petsofig #didyouknow

Great news! Yesterday I wished upon two falling stars that I saw when I looked up at the sky. I wished that Freddie would turn around and live a long healthy, happy life. This morning and today he is completely turned around and is back to his normal self. I’m not sure what happened but I’m researching with my vet to a sure that it won’t happen again. #guineapighealth #scary 😁😇❤️🐹

Sammi came to visit us today as she needed a small teeth trim. Don't forget to check your guinea pig's teeth (and all other pets!) regularly as overgrowth can be very painful and can cause a lot of damage!

‼️UPDATE‼️ I just cleaned Abu & Mushu’s cage yesterday. And I was glad to see no maggots in their cage this time!! I’m still health checking them just in case. I haven’t seen anything wrong with the piggies or I haven’t seen any maggots on them. They still don’t have their loft back... but they’ll have it eventually when I have it 100% maggot free! #guineapig #guineapig #guineapigsofinstagram #guineapighelp #guineapighealth #guineapigcare #guineapigsofinstagram #guineapigsof_ig #guineapigsofinsta #guineapigsofig #guineapigmom #guineapiglover #guineapigposts #guineapigposts101
