We had heared from the necropsy. we have a lot of questions, no answer. So we are hoping, Doxycycline will work as well, as it did .

I'm sorry. My pigs and I had not a good Time tougether- and I told you not, what was happening. But now 8 are still alive, all pig are looking like old pigs.
We have sent the next dead pig to the University of Munich. The found Klebsilla pneumonia and that the pig had a sepsis. They didn't know, what was happening at the beginning. Doxycycline was right and we have eaten it for 3 mounth. one Month I had to do handfeeding 8 pigs. I had a discopathie. I had enough time to do it.
Thank you so mutch- you are very kind

Thank you for the update. I am glad you got a diagnosis. I hope the guinea pigs that made it improve more. I would consider that perhaps in their weakened state while being treated, they may have developed parasites. Perhaps your vet could check them for parasites like mites.

Thank you.
My exotic vet has looked for parasites, he didn'd found any.
he told me: A Sepsis hurts the hole body and perhaps some of it will stay.
He has seen the pigs last month. he said he have to be glad,for the reason, I have lost only 4 pigs.

Parasites can not always be identified. Read over this page in its entirety and see if anything applies.
