I have 3 male guinea pigs, Foster, Chewie and Flake, they're all adults, Foster and Chewie weighs 1.25kg, but Flake only 850g.
I was reading about bumblefoot but it doesn't look like the images I saw, anyway I need your help.
Their bedding is smooth, the others pigs are completely normal, they live in the same space and are always at the same place.
I took him to the vet, he said Flake is dehydrated and the feet is injured because his nails are long and his weight was on the end of his foot (he didn't care much about the foot), he also said that Flake has cramps. Flake is now on a drip and will take antibiotics, I hope he get well soon.
Yes... I wen't to the vet but I couldn't see Flake because there are "visit hours" and it's in one and a half hour from now, anyway, he told me that he's still not eating but he is also not worse, I'm going there later and I will talk to him about bumblefoot as he seem to ignore this.
I took him to another vet and she is wonderful, she kept asking question about him for almost 2 hours while the last vet asked maybe one or two questions! Anyway, I took x-rays of him today and I will have the answer today, it's probably a teeth problem and a surgery will probably be necessary, about his foot, she said the color is not the problem but he does have an onset of pododermatitis and gave a kind of Ozone Oil to put in his foot daily. I am handing feeding him and I will also weigh him soon, I'm also giving him ibuprofen 50mg/ml, 4 drops per 4 hour. I will keep you guys updated, sorry for any grammar mistake.
Yes, you can add it permanently.
It was a success! I'm waiting him to wake up better and I'll pick him up.
The vet posted this image on her Facebook page.
This is his x-ray BEFORE the surgery:

Yes, her and her husband (the one who did the surgery) are awesome. Yes, sure, add all the images, if you ever see images of mine, feel free do add them permanently, don't even need to ask.
