My Poorly Guinea pig as had to go to the vets her eye went cloudy, and as a patch of unclear white in it, she as been put on eye drops and he said he thinks she will not lose it, its looking less cloudy after 24 hrs but the white of her eye is red and the white spot is not disappearing i just hope it is not a cataract as she is coming up 3 and they are common in guinea pigs. :(

Hi Carmels eye is alot better its not cloudy no more but the spot is still there, its looking like a ruff patch now though so allthough the vet said her eye was not scatched i think it had been and had closed over before we noticed it and gave her an infection. If it has not gone right 4 next Monday its back to the vets.

Hope your pig feels better!

My guinea pig just turned 7, I believe guinea pigs usually live for 5-7 years. At least that has been true for mine.

Well they live up to between 4 and 7 years but they are classed as old at 3 years and geriatic at 7 years the older they get the more likely the will get cataracs and other problemsm, my two girls are 3 years so they are getting into the old stage she is alot better today and as started to boss us about lol her eye as still got the patch of white but its starting to look ruff like a scab so i think it was agraze that got infected her eye drops are helping so fingers crossed she will be ok xx

Glad to hear it! I have four little piggies - a mama, papa, and two of their little girls.
