I'm taking him to the ER for SQ right now and then want to start him on AB. ER vet is not cavy-savvy. My vet will not be in until Thursday p.m. I have both Bactrim and Baytril but am unsure if the Baytril will be too much for him in his condition.
Any opinions on that?
You know the drill for Diarrhea, right? Poop from helathy pig, no fresh greens, Kaopectate. If it doesn't improve, you may have to try Flagyl. It could be parasitic in nature.
A steam vaporizer may help.
Poops are coming out harder now after some CC and kao.
He's pretty weak, gums are pale, temp is 98.
I want to give him some Meloxi but mine is diluted ot .85mg/ml. Haven't the slightest idea how to transform the dosages I find on here (at 1.5 mg/ml). Billy Bob, at 1200g, gets .5cc daily. Maybe I'll just cut that in half.
His urine is red-tinged.
I tried to get in earlier at the vet but he can't see me until tomorrow night. We will probably go back to the ER for more SQ tonight.
He smells awful, like human urine. I can't explain it.

Poor guy. It could also just be his previous poor living conditions. Some pet stores and animals living even temporarily there reek of urine (ammonia).
