Second opinion] my guinea pig fell from 3 feet

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

Frank. He is a little over 2 years old he seemed fine at first, only a slight cut from biting his lip. we iced that and its healing nicely. now when we pick him up from his cage he screams in pain i think

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is Frank bleeding a lot?

Not at all

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

He is on the heavy side. possibly 3 pounds and he fell on a tile floor

Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years. I would like to assist you.

Is ***** *****mping?

Is he passing normal stool and urine?

If you pet him, does he seem to flinch?

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.
