Get Pet Questions Answered by Pet Experts
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years. I would like to assist you.
Did the Vet do any Xrays of the teeth?
Are you using a Probiotic since you were using an Antibiotic?
Did you finish the corse of the medication?
What Antibiotic was used?
Normally you need to continue the antibiotics and we generally give them with an eye Dropper Vs putting in the water. You can always syringe feed Pedialyte and water mixture for fluids.Hello,
I would do the dosage directly in the mouth via eye dropper. I would also have an Xray of the jaw done. Back molars can have some points causing the Drooling. Please make sure she is getting her daily Vitamin C supplement. Lastly Please get her on a Probioci like Benebac which can be gotten at the pet shop. When on an Antibiotic a giunea Pig needs the Probiotic to rebuild the Gut flora in the intestinal tract.
If she is not eating try some baby food veggies and offer plenty of fresh hay for her to eat. Please hit reply to discuss this information.
What you can do is dilute it in the water and give as directed with an eye Dropper. This calculator can help get the correct dosage: http://www.guinealynx.info/dose_calculator.html
Oral Dosage: 2.5-10.0 mg/kg q12h Every 12 hours.
How much were you putting in the water bottle? You can make up exactly what you had in the water bottle and give throughout the day, or you can call the Vet in the Morning and ask for specific instruction to dilute per does, since they have her weight. As far as the Probiotic you can give any time. It is needed to rebuild the gut flora. AS I said if she is not eating try some Green veggies in baby food form.
Antibiotics can upset the stomach and cause lack of appetites and Probiotics generally help with that. We usually recommend Critical Care for Herbivores when giving an antibiotic as a supplemental feeding.
