I have a guinea pig that started losing s appetite earlier

Customer Question

I have a young guinea pig that started losing his appetite earlier this week. I took him to the vet, who found nothing wrong (e.g., parasites). I've been feeding him critical care but the poor thing isn't getting better.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:
What testing did his vet do?
Did they treat him with anything?
Are his stools larger, smaller, or less formed then usual? Any decrease in the volume he passes?

Thank you for your time but I ended up taking him to another vet this morning.
