Veterinarian's Assistant: What sort of animal are we talking about?

Our guinea pig does not do anything any more and is just sitting there. I think it is bloated -no more toilet . Is there anything I can do to help him until I can go to the vet tomorrow morning?

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. I'm sorry to hear that. What is the guinea pig's name and age?

Name is ***** ***** unknown We inherited him from another family and he is lovely.

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Sparky?

Maybe 4

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sparky?

He was absolutely fine this morning and is deteriorating rapidly at the moment

I am very sorry to see that no one has reached out to you before now.

1) Is he still eating and drinking?
2) When did this first begin?

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
