My guinea pigs had to move to my fiance's house because I'm currently living in California and will be moving to Montana with him in a few months. So he's currently taking care of my pigs.
Yesterday, he mentioned one of my pigs, Victoria, walked "funny" for a little bit and then walked/ran just fine so we didn't give much thought to this. Today when he came home from work he took a pigdeo for me and showed me that at veggie time she didn't want to come out but when she did she was walking funny, limping, and then she walked "normal" but kinda limping. He picked her up and checked her back feet and saw a bruise on one of them.
He then remembered that 2 days ago my other pig, her cagemate, Nami, another female, was trying to hump her and we thought they were in heat but didn't think much of it. It happens often.
Yes, they're both females and they've been together for over a year now. They currently live in a 2x5. Will attach pictures of my pig's leg and a video of her walking.
She has a vet appointment tomorrow at 4.40pm.
I appreciate any information anyone can give me about this. I'm obviously extremely worried about my little girl.
Yesterday, was the first day after the leg injury that she went to the side of the cage for her Oxbow tabs. She didn't stand up like she usually does but she was definitely alert and wheeking to get one. So that's keeping our hopes up! She's a positive pig and we believe she'll get better.
She's currently taking .3ml of Metacam daily. Any thoughts?
Here's the xray.
Can we have this picture permanently add to the post for future reference? Thanks.
