    Guinea Pig Drastic weight loss not sure on age but thinking he's v old?

    Hi one of my guineas that I got from a rescue centre 18 months ago has drastically lost weight over the last few weeks. I have no idea on his age so I am guessing it's old age. He seems very happy all the same. Should I seperate him and/or visit the vets. Thanks. H x

    by all means, visit the vet. i'm thinking he may have treatable diabetes, or untreatable, eventually painful, cancer. i don't know if guinea pigs get hyperthyroidism, but it's something that would cause a human to lose weight.
