He's probably not pooping because he isn't eating much.

And we don't know if his stool will be normal with only pellet slurry. Probably not.

See http://www.guinealynx.info/search_bloat.html for information on bloat.

So can I use veggies in pellet slurry which is high in vitamin C?

He needs the pellet slurry more than he needs the veggies. If you're using the Zupreem pellets, they've got vitamin C in them.

Okay and I'm giving him 25ml per day. Am I feeding him below average?

I'm not getting forum feeding quantity measurement. Does he require 59ml per day? His weight was 900g and now he is 670g.

Read and follow www.guinealynx.info/handfeeding.html

Weighing a couple times daily will tell you if he is getting enough. If he is losing weight, you need to feed more.

His poop is getting very bad. Is it because of pellet slurry or should I start veggies slurry?

You have many posts asking if you should start a slurry. You've been answered several times. If you want your pig to have a chance of living, then YES, FEED HIM THE PELLET SLURRY.

Per day? That's not nearly enough. He needs 10 cc. of slurry for every hundred grams he weighs, every day, split into several feedings. Since he's lost weight, I'd increase that to 15-20 cc at a time.

Yes per day. Ok then I'll try increasing it. So is that the cause he is not pooping at all? I was thinking if he is not pooping then it will be painful for him to store that much of a food

Blackeyepiggy, are you actually reading the posts that people are taking time to write?

Both Lynx and I have explained to you how VERY important it is that a guinea pig eat all the time, and that he will die if he doesn't. But you've decided that it might be painful for him to store that much food. But you're severely underfeeding him.

If you want this pig to have a chance at living, you MUST handfeed him. And you must feed him enough to keep his gut moving. If you don't, he'll either develop fatal stomach ulcers (they eat holes all the way through the stomach), or he'll develop bloat and die from that.
