Did your guinea pig get pain medication?
It sounds like you are doing the right thing (hand feeding lots - www.guinealynx.info/handfeeding.html) It sometimes takes a while before they can eat on their own.
The vet gave metacam for the pain but said to stop using it now and to continue with the emeprid until the bottle is empty, we have stopped this also as his stools are still a bit loose at times, Do you think this is correct to do this?
Could the hair loss around his eyes be stress from the bullying?
Do you have crisp clear pictures of the hair loss around the eyes? Are they watering? It could be fungal or from wetness.
Continue to watch for signs of pain though he may be fine.
His incisors at the top look quite long and the bottom incisors have grown but still small. Should I take him back to the vets to get the top ones trimmed?
His eyes are still missing hair right around the rims but not as extensive as the hair loss was, I’m sorry I can’t upload a picture. The other concern is the right eye seems to be receding or is it that his cheek is swollen? I’ve carefully had a feel around his cheecks and there doesn’t seem to be any swelling or discomfort.
When we feed him now he’s still not keen on the dual care feed but drinks loads of water he practically swallows the syringe. And makes a strange chewing sound. What should I do?

20-30 grams of supplemental food is not nearly enough for an adult guinea pig. The calculation is that a pig needs 100+ cc. of Critical Care or pellet slurry for every kilogram it weighs, every day, divided into 6-8 servings throughout the day and night. You adjust up or down according to the weight of the pig, and down if the pig is eating other things. So at 740 grams, your pig needs 75 cc. of supplemental food.
