I am sorry I posted the link, cause I love guinea pigs and here its written(i only look at the first two photos to see whats normalon the inside and outside),its written that they killed the pigs(euthanasia) to research them.And I am against it, i love animals and i am vegetarian, but Lynx, you know what kind ofpolicy you have.
And Daisymay thanks for good wishes!
What brands of watter bottles do you have?
Irie likes the one with a long *gate* Vitakrafts one...
you ve got to fix the gate on plastic part yourself and than there is a watter bottle...
However, we botught the new one..i clean it regulary with tooth brush i have special for this..but it was so oldand i couldnt clean everything so i bought new one..
We re not very happy cause the water is sometimes coming out of it on its own..so...I fix it..and its a little better ...but still:S
I hope we will manage to repair this, cause he really loves thoose ones... And we even bought two so we have some parts that we can change..if something is off in one...we re so into do everything the best so Irie is one spoiled happy swine;).
Which type of watter bottles do you have..?
And all the best from us:)!!

I notice eye discharge recently more on left eye..i am not very impressed. The eye look okay and there is not a lot of it..its like in the morning its okay and that in the noon i see it.
HE is infected with bordetella since september 2018, but i think it doesnt have a lot to do with it, cause its only in one eye.
He s having occasional nebuliser treatment with Gentamcyn other wise he is on top form.
I hope he is not getting blind or this is not from nebuliser.. i read it can hurt the eyes with long term use..
And do they use tobramcyn for eyes or not for pigs?
I ll send you a photo and take him to vet if this will continue.. but for now, when there is little of it, can i clean it with chamomile tea...?
I wouldnt like to cause any damage.
If anybody knows and its bothered to answer we will be grateful!
A tiny bit of massage could be done if the eye otherwise looks fine and there is no redness (possible injury or something stuck under the lid).
However lately we had some problems Irie was sneezing a lot and i am cleaning the dust,shaking the hay...he has chronic stuffed nose.Yesterdayat night he was making some wierd sounds from his lungs(he also has asthma butit was different).But as he is also permanently infected all thoose sounds and stuff -i think only i sort of know why is he doingwhat.
Couple of days ago we tried NaCl inhlations just to make his nose not stuffed, but it didnt help nothing, i ll put him on Gentamcyn inhalations but we really really try to use it as little as possible. For now we wont be visiting vets. Irie was last time at vets on31.7.2020for sucessfully removed skin formation, cause i dont wanna stress him and we dont have regular vet now..so we will go when we really must.
I had to write somewhere hope you likereading our update.His weight is stable924gand he reached 5 and a half(when ex vet declaredhe ll probably die of sepsis we could only dream about that age,but we did and we are still here!!) and thanks to you all too..
And we re..we re very happy for this even when having problems(today was horrible-we didnt sleep cause irie was having problems,my mentor said my diploma is still notgood enough cause there are too many quotesand i went to be covid tested with dad cause we re opening the store again-and there were so many people you have to wait more than an hour so we went hometwice..oh, well...) So,here s the update and i hope Irie will getbetter like he did always before..
