Today is day 2 for Beef on baytril. The poor guy falls on his side if he tries to walk. He won't eat vegetables or drink water and hides away in his house all day. Occasionally he'll go over to the pellets and eat maybe one or two, same for the timothy hay.
I know anorexia is serious in guinea pigs so how can I get him to eat and drink more? And is there anything I can do to make him even a little bit less miserable?

The rule is that a guinea pig that's not eating anything else needs 100+ cc. of Critical Care or pellet mash for every kilogram it weighs, every day, split into 6-8 feedings around the clock. Adjust up or down for weight, and down for any food that he is still eating.
