3135. A 9-month-old guinea pig has a bloated stomach

A 9-month-old guinea pig has a bloated abdomen. X-rays show lots of gas in the stomach and small intestines. This guinea pig loves to chew on any object, including the tunnel and new litter. So, the bits and pieces accumulate and impact the stomach and small intestines, leading to gas formation at the obstructed site. The diagnosis is impaction of the stomach and small intestines.

Prevention is difficult for this guinea pig. The other one is smaller and trimmer with no abdominal distension.

3134. A 20-year-old red-eared slider stops eating for a month. Why?

Apr 12, 2018

This 20-year-old male  red-eared slider loved the 76-year-old woman owner who looks like 40 years old. He would chase after the small rubber ball when the owner threw it." When praised, he would clap his front paws!" she said.

For the past 1 month, he stopped eating. For the past 2 weeks, he had this coarse breathing sound and foaming mouth. What is the problem?


X-ray showed some congestion in the left cranial area. Is it pulmonary edema?
The slider was syringed fed and did not lose weight of 950g for the past 2 days on in-patient.
He is much more active but does not eat. So, syringe feeding of critical care for another 10 days.

3133. An orange breasted green pigeon and pretty big mushrooms are seen on 8am and 11.55pm Apr 12, 2018

Apr 12, 2018   8am

For the past 7 days, I had no chance to photograph the orange breasted green pigeon as they don't appear. A single or couple did land on the tree opposite my exercise machine in the public park but they flew away fast, before I could zoom on them.

Today, one appeared and I was ready.
