Customer Question

Hi, My guinea pig is not moving and won't eat or drink. He also won't hold himself up, he's just laying down.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help your guinea pig. What is the guinea pig's name and age?
Customer: His name is ***** ***** 1 year old.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Pippen?
Customer: I don't think so, we adopted him from our humane society in Dec. 2015
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
