My friend's Guiena Pig is very ill:( He won't eat, and all he does is lay around. They are feeding him health powder with his food, but he is going even more ill. Poor baby. He is not getting any better, and they do not have the money for the vet:( I hope he makes it:(

Tell them to take him to the vet anyway - most vets will let you make a payment plan, especially in dire cases like this.

If he isn't eating, mix baby food (vegetable, with no potatoes or banana) or just mash up some bananas with water. Add some vitamin C powder, about 1/2 a teaspoon per banana or jar of babyfood. Feed it to your guinea pig through a syringe (sp?) with no needle. If he won't take it, force feed him.

Any other symptoms? Has he been in a stressful situation? Can he move his back legs?
