Guinea Pig with Neurological Issues
I have adopted a young guinea pig with neurological issues. She came home with me today. I have guinea pig experience, but I have never had one with neurological issues. I am wondering if anyone else on here has experience with this?
From what I understand, she had an infection that got out of control and caused brain damage. She is infection clear now (vet checked). But, she circles and falls over. She is in a small c&c cage, 2 cubes by 2 cubes. She seems to be drinking a lot of water, and I am concerned if she is actually getting any. I tried to give her green leaf lettuce and she sucked on it and then freaked out smacking herself in the face with her paws.
She is devouring the alfalfa hay I got her. I have not given her pellets yet as I am trying to find OxBow Cavy Performance for her, but thus car have only found Cuisine (which I already have for my older girls). If I can not find it soon, I will just have to give her Cuisine until my pet food store opens again on Wednesday.
Any tips or advice would be appreciated.
