We have a male guinea pig which has always been on the small

Customer Question

We have a male guinea pig which has always been on the small side, but very lively and also noisy. However, as of yesterday he has been very quiet not squeaking at all and a lot more lathargic compared to normal. He has eaten grass today, and some apple and banna, but been off pepper and carrots which are his favourites. Im sure fact he eating is good sign but concerned regarding sudden change in behaviour. Any recommendations?
