Disabled Guinea Pig / As well as health checks for guinea pigs that were adopted from here, I also encourage anybody who has a guinea pig to make an online appointment to come and get a free nail clip, ear and boar cleaning etc.
This boy came to visit a few days ago. He was possible dropped though his current owner is not sure. She was given him in this state. His body is contorted, there is absolutely no movement in his hind end. In fact his hind is very stiff and hard. My thinking is that this is what happens when a guinea pig gets dropped and no after care is given.
He has a large anal impaction that I cleared up for him but that will keep returning because he has no control down there. Even though he was skinny, he did have a good appetite. However - it is hard to imagine that he is pain free.
Sending this little one lots of love and light.
