Help! My Guinea Pig Is Sick
My guinea pig Mitsuki is sick today i noticed she did not act like her self her eyes are not bright and they are kinda sunken in when you try to pet her she turns her head the other way she just sits there also i noticed that she lost some weight their is nothing wrong with her teeth but she hasn't been wormed could that be the problem? ive just been busy lately any questions and comments are greatly appricated

She needs to go to the vet. It's unlikely that she has worms unless she spends a lot of time outside grazing on grass that's frequented by wildlife.

Take her to the vet!
Guinea pigs dont need to be wormed like a dog does. When my pigger started losing weight, it turned out to be heart/organ issues.

Hi I am so sorry. It could have been a gut problem sometimes guinea-pigs guts will twist inside each other we had a guinea-pig die of this. Worming guinea-pigs never heard of this we have had guinea-pigs for years and have never wormed them.
