He might have a blocked tear duct which would account for the normal eye fluid leaking down instead of circulating back to continue cleaning the eye. With little guinea pigs, sometimes a warm wet compress can help to open the duct. However, if this has been going on for a while, something so simple may not help.
He did his usual pouting session, but he got over it. The good news is that they didn't quick him. He's good for a couple of months now. Buttercup got done today as well. She did get quicked but didn't get too upset. She did very well. Sammy and Dean get their turn on Tuesday. Gilligan and Skipper after that. The babies don't need it yet.
I tried him on zucchini for the first time yesterday and he enjoyed that. I might give it to him more often. I don't know the nutritional value or if it has anything that would put his health at risk. I peeled it too. What do you guys know about it? How many times a week is it safe to give him? He's in his golden years and is enjoying himself. I don't want to do anything to derail him.
It is likely the listing on this page for baby zucchini includes the skin. The USDA website might have more info on regular zucchini with and without skin.
