My name is Jenny and so far I have one guinea pig named Spud. He's a boy and he's one years old.
I got my dear Spud from a friend who couldn't keep him.
I had to bring him to the vet yesterday because he has a URI. :(
He's currently being treated with antibiotics :)
He eats Oxbow pellets, hay, and veggies :) Such as red bell peppers, romaine lettuce and dandelion leaves.
He has a Midwest size cage with handmade fleece liners as bedding. 8 sq feet
Does this sound good?
I've done lots of research on guinea pigs and once he's better I plan on finding him a buddy.
I hope he recovers well! Weighing daily is a good idea right now to make sure he is eating enough. I am glad you have seen a vet.
What antibiotic was prescribed? Hopefully it was a safe one and you went to a vet who sees many guinea pigs.
