Oh gosh, I will feed her some more. I'm not going to bother her right now because she's eating a little bit of hay.
Her tummy is still a little hard and tender. So the activated charcoal or olive oil will help her poop? Or pass gas?
Her breathing is fine.
Would mineral oil help her pass poops? I want her to poop!
She is alert, eating SOME hay and even playing in it. A huge difference from this weekend! I just need her to poop and pass gas and eat way more on her own!!
I think the charcoal helps with gas and the oil to pass poops. Mineral oil can probably be used instead of olive oil. Maybe someone else will respond about that. Have you tried massaging her tummy? It may feel uncomfortable because her tummy is tender, but it is supposed to help the intestines move.
Bloat and intestinal stasis are serious and difficult to resolve. I hope one of the suggested treatments helps. I recommend that you call the vet--you may need to give your pig cisapride in addition to reglan.

My beautiful little sister hand fed her while I was at work today. Love her so much. Isobel even bit her. That's my girl <3 Haha she's always been mean. I want my mean Isobel back!
My birthday is on Thursday and all I want is for my baby to poop and eat normally again!
Some members have used the vibrating massage pillows or putting their guinea pig on the clothes dryer while it is running. The vibration seems to help some pigs.
Keep up the feeding--input produces output!
Sometimes pigs who get bloat can be suseptable to getting it again (or so my vet said...) so just always keep an eye on this, I do with my girl.
Another thing is she hasn't gained OR lost any weight since Sunday.
I don't have a vibrating pillow, however our couch has a built in massager. I should try that out.
I've been keeping her separated so I can monitor her poops and eating. I tried to put her back with Penny and they acted like they don't know each other. Am I gonna have to do intros all over again??
I don't think Isobel is better though, she's no longer bloated but her poop isn't right. She has an appointment for Monday morning.
