Hi. I have a 4 year old guinea pig who was showing BIG signs of breathing problems on Monday. You can even see him twitch to take every breath.
Got into the vet on Tuesday and he got a prescription for liquid Lasix -0.5ml every 12 hours. The vet said the little guy has lots of fluid in the lungs and this will make it better.
So we’ve been taking it for 3 days now and there is no change. No better. No worse.
I can’t get in to see the vet again until Monday (since it’s Thursday, it feels really far away)
I’ve read other posts and stuff online and it seems the little guy is on a REALLY low dose. Should I give him a higher dose myself? Or wait until Monday and ask the vet?
