My gp, Noodle, developed a heart that seems to be pounding

Customer Question

Hi, My gp, Noodle, developed a heart that seems to be pounding extrememly hard, and he quit eating. I've been giving him drops of water, but he is not wanting to move or anything. You can actually see his heart beating, and you can feel it pounding soo easily.

I am so sorry for the misunderstanding; the question came in as a dog. I will opt so another veterinarian that works with Guinea Pigs could help you. Sorry.
