Guinea Pig Update 27.05.15

Well guys!!

Everything has went down hill with poor Marvin, then back up  bit again!!

Everything was looking great until yesterday morning. It looked like he had took off the scan a little in the middle and by the time I came home from work, it was open and rotten looking inside. 

So I took him back to the vets, they had a look and got me an appointment at 8am this morning, to see the vet who done all his ops. 

So we have taken swabs to send away to find out what type of bacteria is living in it. As there is something that won't let it heal and is not responding to antibiotics. But we won't find out the results until next week

Until then he is on
Septrin - a new antibiotic 7.5ml twice a day
Metacam 2ml of pain killer once a day

Also he recommended Manuka Honey. I'm not saying anything about it except that it has antibacterial properties and I will be doing a review!!!

He is still acting fine. Being his normal little self. Eating, peeing , pooing and wrecking his cage. It's just this stupid wound. Looking at him in his cage and pen, you wouldn't know anything was wrong with him. So that is always a hopeful sign!!

If anything changes I will update soon :)

Speak soon
