Good luck with your piggy's eye! My pig Twilight had a hay poke. Look for "Twilights Medical Thread" with NO apostrophe on Twilights with JX4 as the author. There are pics and chronicles his healing and recovery. It may help give you hope.

And got the T-shirt

You need a vet fund. If you can't afford a vet, you can't afford a guinea pig. Good medical care is as much a part of responsible pet ownership as food and housing. It's not fair to a helpless animal to have it as a pet and not provide the vet care it needs. It depends totally on you for absolutely everything in its life, and you need to figure out how to provide that.

Your pig needs a vet, now. See if you can borrow the money from someone for that. And then work out a plan to pay them back and put money aside for future vet visits. The question is never "Will my pig need to see a vet?" It's "WHEN will my pig need to see a vet?" Because almost all of them do.

Can you mow yards? Baby sit? Do chores for the neighbors?

And get a lid for the cage. Closet shelving makes an awesome lid.

I've moved your question and gave you your own thread.

This does sound serious, and I hope you can arrange for your guinea pig to see a veterinarian soon.

Not sure why my reply above appeared in this thread. I think it's meant for a different one. Sorry!

Taking a guess here:

Bites often abscess. Vet. Now.

Many vets offer low (or no) cost credit plans specifically for veterinary emergencies. You are responsible for his care and his life; he cannot help himself. He is a living being. Please don't let him down.
