, the deposit you have placed is not used to compensate the professional until you rate my service! Please remember, that when you are asked to provide a rating, it is a rating of my answer, and not the website itself. I will do everything possible to provide a timely and detailed response.
I am sorry to hear about this concern.
Unfortunately, a loss of both appetite and thirst for a guinea pig can become quite serious quickly, but, very difficult to identify the primary cause, including issues like a systemic infection.
Here's a brief summary of issues that can cause anorexia:Anorexia in Guinea Pigs
There are some appetite stimulant techniques, also described in the link, a vet can start, but the key to therapy is getting into the vet as soon as possible.

You may also select REPLY TO EXPERT if for any reason you need more information BEFORE RATING. I would be happy to try and be of the greatest assistance possible before you provide a rating.
REMEMBER: Even after you submit feedback, you can still review our discussion or reply if needed. Unfortunately, I cannot legally prescribe medications or offer a definitive diagnosis without performing a physical examination, which is necessary to establish a client-patient-doctor relationship. Any medical therapy and treatment should only be performed after an in-person examination with your veterinarian. While information may be discussed, only your primary veterinarian should make the determination on therapy.
