As a responsible guinea pig owner, it's crucial to be aware of the signs that your pet may be unwell. One of the most obvious indicators of sickness is a change in their poop and eating habits.
If you observe that your guinea pig's poop is smaller, softer, or less frequent than usual, it could signify digestive problems or an upset stomach. Additionally, diarrhea or a lack of poop altogether can also indicate an underlying health issue.
Similarly, if your guinea pig has lost their appetite or is eating less, it may be a sign of an underlying medical condition. This loss of appetite can be a symptom of various health problems that require veterinary attention.
It's vital to monitor your guinea pig's eating and pooping habits closely and act promptly if you notice any changes. Seeking veterinary care can help ensure your pet's health and well-being.

We live in the Las Vegas, NV area. Does anyone (you too GuineaDad :)) know of a veterinarian that specializes in guinea pigs and will be available for emergencies off hours? We have now lost two guinea pigs on two separate occasions due to late night illness, and in both cases the only vet available had a very limited to no background with guinea pigs. Thanks!
