He had veggie, pellet, and wafer before he passed away with the brain power and energy he could muster with his condition. When he was doing worse, I rattled the Oxbow wafer container and it was the last wafer left. He grabbed it but could only chew a little with what he was able to do with what abilities he had... He wanted to eat it but just could get some soft nibbles in. I don't know what went wrong... I can't believe he is gone... I will miss his sweet licks and nibbles on my hand to let him back in the cage...
I miss you, sweetie... I won't ever forget you...
here is a picture of his last wafer and it was the last wafer left in the container, and I buried it with him.... He wouldn't let go of the wafer no matter how much he was not doing well.... <3 : (
If anyone has any experience or knowledge of head tilt, nystagmus, neurological problems, seemingly looking blind, coordination deficits, symptoms like these you have heard or seen in rabbits or guinea pigs please let me know. I would really appreciate it...
Also when I noticed symptoms my parents said he would be fine and after my sister said it was a waste of money to get necropsy. And as I was in a weak and emotional state. As well as I wish I researched more so I would have known to ask for ivermectin. It seems like earmites.
Treat yourself kindly - you did everything you could with the resources you had.
The little symptoms of a couple bald patches under the chin was when I thought to take him to the vet. He had no noticable neurological symptoms or anything else abnormal. It was a sudden downhill.
I was just expressing my feelings about what happened during when he was sick. It must have been confusing and incomplete as I was emotional writing the posts. I just thought that a guinea pig community would understand the feeling of a loss and could be of support.
