When we got back from Manila, after a week when we got him from our friend, our little piggie got terribly sick and he lost a lot of weight because he won’t eat at all even his most favorite cucumber, from the looks of him…he wouldn’t make it. So I called the nearest animal clinic from our place-Wise Owl and was relieved when the vet confirmed that they do check-ups on small animals such as my guinea pig!
On the day of our appointment, the vet confirmed that he got pneumonia (our piggie had a hard time breathing) probably from the cold weather and lost almost half of his weight, and to our relief he said that it can be cured by antibiotics for 10days (2x a day/2ml). Whew!
Just overnight, our piggie sprang back to life *literally* and started to eat his veggies except carrots&pellets because it was hard to chew&swallow. And after several days of chasing my piggie for him to take his antibiotics…he is now healthy and naughty again!

Expect a thorough check-up on your pet, the vet knows what he’s doing, in the same time expect a hefty bill too. It’s expensive and costly to have a sick pet:( My husband just laughed it off because our pet’s check-up bill was way more expensive than his health check-up!
