    Max, my guinea pig has gotten better since he was ill. He was more alive than ever before. Now since yesterday he has been doing nothing. yesterday I changed his cage and he got better. he hasn't been eating a whole lot but was drinking a ton. Now when i took him out of his cage he fell over.. now he is okay standing but isn't doing anything.. Can't get any kind of food in to him... on sunday he had a bath and was a little damp on his belly when i put him away. My dad i don't think will let him go back to the vet cuz they're spent over $200 on him. What can I do? :cry:

    Could be a number of things.

    If he's not eating I would definatly take him to the vet again. When a guinea pig gets sick they can decline extremly fast. In less than 24 hours of not eating their liver cells can already begin to shut down and then they go downhill very fast.

    The excessive drinking may also be a sign of diabetes. The balance issue may be a sign of an ear infection.

    I'd say that you need to try to get him to the vet, persuade your dad if necisarry, or raise your own money from other friends and family members.

    until then, you may have to force feed him.
