but I find this website easy to use and NOT giving you a watermark 

or limiting you to 3 free downloads per month etc.

very small original image. When I increased
the resolution and size using photoshop, 
the whole image is pixellated and blurry. Hence,
zyro.com did help a lot to enlarge it.(see above 2 images).

4101. Video of SECOND OPINION FROM TOA PAYOH VETS. Geppo the guinea pig from Italy. Instagram.

 Extract of email to Dr Sing Kong Yuen, Toa Payoh Vets, Singapore on 25 Feb 2022


...but he (Geppo, the Peruvian Guinea Pig) always loses weight (for the past 2 months)we are at about 24% of the weight which was 1150 grams.


we are very discouraged. we are feeding him all day and we do not sleep


I apologize if I took the liberty of writing to you because we love guinea pigs but we don't understand why it doesn't transform food (Critical Care and supplements) into body mass.


Thank you if you can answer me, glad to have met you and to devote so much attention to these magical little animals.


A warm greeting

Dear doctor Kong than you for your reply, glad to meet you, thank you very much for your kind information.
preliminarily if it is considered possible to pay for her intervention via paypal.
I answer her.
Geppo is a Peruvian guinea pig,
the weights in December 21w ere around 1150 grams she ate alone and drank centrifuged peppers. perhaps he was also a little overweight.
in January, after the tooth was filed, it dropped to 1070 grams and then an abscess was created where the veterinarian intervened.
the weights fluctuated between the end of January and February between 930 and 1010,  feeding it with critical care and pellets and centrifuged vegetables and antibiotics and painkiller for the abscess that was eliminated
After a second filing and changed the antibiotic (exocin) we feed it with cryitcal care and pellets with syringes up to 200 per day. he also eats some hay by himself, such as field grass, parsley. but little compared to before.
now the weight varies from a minimum of 880 to a maximum of 950. just eaten 60 syringes of critical pellets and vegetable juices, it makes the feces and the weight drops to even more than the initial weight.
and as if not holding back the food.
the feces are formed and dark in color, have no particular odors.
now i tried milk thistle because the vet said it could be liver lipidosis, however it doesn't increase in mass.
as a social life he takes a few strolls but then basically stays in his bed
Thank you if you can answer me, glad to have met you and to devote so much attention to these magical little animals.

re . info on weight losses of the guinea pig

good morning kind  Mr Sing  compliments for your link on you tube are fab.

www.toapayohvets.com

my name is Otello I am an accountant and with Barbara is a lawyer and we write from Italy from La Spezia (5 terre)

we have 3 (first 4) guinea pigs that we keep at home.

We have a problem that we cannot understand and I have seen that she has uploaded a range of videos to you tube.

I try to summarize the problem. Two months ago we took us to a good exotics vet in Pisa (70 km from our city) and he had found that his molars had grown and he was not eating. The vet milled the molars and the next day grew a ball on the left of the mandible. We called and the studio said it was normal. 2 days later she got very big and after another 2 days we went to the vet and he operated and emptied the abscess.

from then on we administered antibiotics and made dressings with betadyne and hydrogen peroxide. during this period it dropped but within 10% / 15%. the veterinarian then changed the antibiotic as it conformed to the antibiogram and the infection had already dropped a lot, no more pus.

from here on we feed it with quantities of critical care oxbow, pellets dissolved in water and we blend vegetables. the fact is that he continues to lose weight, indeed precisely he gains 40 grams after dozens and dozens of syringes of crital care and immediately plummets sometimes even in addition to the food we put in, such as weight shortly after defecating and urinating.
the quality of the stools are good, dark in color not soft, while at the beginning they were dehydrated and dry. but he always loses weight we are at about 24% of the weight which was 1150 grams.
we are very discouraged. we are feeding him all day and we do not sleep
I apologize if I took the liberty of writing to you because we love guinea pigs but we don't understand why it doesn't transform food into body mass.
Thank you if you can answer me, glad to have met you and to devote so much attention to these magical little animals.

This sparrow-size bird with iridescent red and blue colours posed for a few seconds today 22-02-2022.  22022022 reads the same from left to right, from right to left and upside down.  The date is a palindrome and an ambigram. A rare species in Lentor Street Playground.

Got a photo of a rare sparrow-sized bird on a tree in Lentor Street Playground this morning. I was photographing the leaves (red and green) when this rare bird with irridescent red and blue feathers dropped by and posed for me for a few seconds. Today is 2nd day Grandma is negative for Covid-19 ART. Today is Tue 22 Feb 2022 - 22022022 which is a palindrome and an ambigram - a rare occurrence in calendars. An auspicious day?


Is the bird below a red-crowned barbet?

Four rabbits with rotten teeth.

DO RABBITS SUFFER FROM TOOTHACHES LIKE WE DO?

15 Feb 2022. Dr Sing Kong Yuen, BVMS (Glasgow). This post of 4 rabbit cases with rotten teeth informs and educates the rabbit owner to seek early treatment when their rabbits have swollen jaws. 1, Three X-ray views are advised. 2. Daily examination of the jaws using touch will enable you to spot jaw abscesses and swellings early. 3. Delays in seeking veterinary treatment will result in all tooth roots being infected and the teeth being lost.
