If she's not eating at all, you MUST force feed her. Guinea pigs are wired to need food moving through them at all times, or the stomach acids which they constantly secrete will eat holes in the lining of the stomach, and can also become bloated. A guinea pig that's eating nothing needs 100 cc of Critical Care or pellet slurry for every kilogram it weighs, every day, split into 6-8 servings around the clock. You adjust up or down according to the pig's weight, and down if the pig is eating on its own.
Good luck with her, and let us know how she does.
It is hard to administer the medication within the same hour and sometimes a few hours as when she is too annoyed it mostly gets on her face. So if she is too unwilling, I leave her be for a while to get more into her instead of onto her. I swaddle her when I give her the syringe but she can still move her head. (I'm probably not doing it right.) I've tried to find video tutorials on swaddling guinea pigs, but most people can get their pigs to eat through syringe without swaddling. I feel awful that I can't keep a good schedule with her, but I know that I'm trying my best. Trying not to beat myself up too much about it.
