My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years. I would like to assist you. A severe head tilt can be from an ear infection that has progressed into the middle ear and inner ear. This type of infection will cause the head tilt also known as torticollis or “wry neck”. It also causes the loss of equilibrium which is the falling over you see and nausea. The treatment for your Boy Boy will depend on the Vet as well as the underlying cause of her torticollis. Generally it is treated with a Guinea Pig safe Antibiotic. This problem is reversible with treatment. I do want to add if Boy Boy stops eating due to this issue you may have to force feed and give fluids. If needed I can get you a list of Guinea Pig Vets. Please let me know.
