A guinea pig has left nostril discharge of pus

July 8, 2014

First day at work after presentation at Myanmar Veterinary Association Seminar on July 5, 2014 in Yangon. First case of Fluffy, Male, 3 years. He was caged alone as Muffin (now castrated) had bitten his nose in Sep 2011 when crated together. 

"Fluffy is not eating and moving," the lady owner said.
"Did he stop eating suddenly?" I checked the front teeth and put my finger into the mouth to feel for molar spurs. The teeth were normal.
"There is pus coming out from the left nostril," I showed the lady by pressing the nostril. "In addition, the eyes are crusted with tears."

The guinea pig was given antibiotics and dextrose saline and warded for daily treatment.
