As I have had to pay $550 to her her dental done. But the vet said that she was still eaten abit strange but she was able to take a few bites out of a carrot but she was still eatting slower then a normal piggie. You thoughts would be very appreciated.
If the root is not damaged, the premolar should continue to grow. You need to weigh her daily and hand feed as necessary. Encourage eating hay, as that will help keep the teeth the proper length. An xray can show if there is any type of infection (did the vet do a dental xray?).
The amount of weight loss you describe is extreme. You will need to do all you can to get food into your guinea pig to help her recover. I would not count on her being able to eat enough to maintain weight. Sometimes it takes a while for a guinea pig to be able to eat enough. Pain medication following a planing can help.
But is it true that if she has lost her tooth that she will have ongoing dental issues. And her teeth won’t go out of alignment due to missing her premolar!!
And when she did have her dental done the ver told me she has lost one of her premolars and I am not sure of that is why she can't ear the hay?
Please help ASAP!!
- And got the T-shirt
She is able to eat tomato fine and corn cob and she can bite into carrot. I don't know if she will have to be put to sleep if she can't ear hay or grass cause her premolar is not there and we are not sure if it will.frow back or not,
I am trying so hard to give her timothy hay and a sweet one. She smells it and then walks away from it.
I have also been put critical care on a plate in her xagw but she won't touch it!
And we don't know if her premolar will grow back at all either as don't know when it broke or how she broke it. And he thinks that id the tooth don't grow back then we may have to put her to sleep and I don't want that to happen at all!!
Can anyone tell.me if a x-ray will show if there is any roots were she lost the tooth. as the ver said that there's a 3mm hole where her premolae was.
