Its so sad.. she and her sister were very sick and it

Customer Question
Its so sad.. she...

Its so sad.. she and her sister were very sick and it happened over a week and we just lost her sister today..

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Guinea pig

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. What is the guinea pig's name and age?

Well the one who passed her name was Patches - she was orange and had a white dot on her head and she was 7 months old. Ud is black and white and looks like a cow and she is 9 months.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the guinea pig's name?

Ud

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Ud?

She has just started almost pushing out white discharge, she just lays down and doesn't walk, she will eat if i hold her up and over her bowl as well as hold her to her water bottle. I have tried giving her more vitamin C because i didn't have enough money to go and spend on a vet bills, so I was waiting and she has only been sick for 3 days. Her sister was sick for 7.

Can you tell me the diet you are feeding?

How much Vitamin C do you give a day>

Do you give any fresh veggies?

Is she tooth grinding or squeeling when she urinates?

I have sent the Premium request for a Phone call if you would like it.

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.
