Hello again Laura

sorry to hear about Snicker's eye problem, however I have worked out an answer for you below ...

1. Of course you are best to have your guinea pig checked over by a vet but where the sort of injury you have described has occurred then many vets would suggest an antibiotic eye drop such as Vigamox (moxifloxacin hydrochloride ophthalmic solution) this should be fine for guinea pigs. You would normally put two drops in the eye four times a day for a week.

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.

Regards,

Dr Scott
