Customer Question

About two hours ago, my daughter accidentally dropped our guinea pig (cavy) on the floor and the pig landed on the mouth (I didn't see the accident). The pig now has an injury to the mouth (the bleeding has stopped) and is unable to eat although she appears to want to eat (she normally has an excellent appetite). The pig is also making a constant rattling sound (maybe from aspirated blood or broken teeth?). The top teeth appear to be intact but I cannot see the bottom teeth. I intend to syringe feed her mashed pellets tonight and take her to a vet tomorrow as soon as I can. Any advice or suggestions? Please help. Thank you.
