I've had several guinea pigs over the years and never experienced that. Looking it up, it seems to be a fairly benign condition. If there are no other symptoms and it's not interfering with his vision, the consensus seems to be to let it go. If you're worried about heart problems (and it's not always connected with pea eye), a vet could check the piglet and let you know.
Is it normal for a guinea pig to give up after having a litter of 5 babies. She was fine but now 3 weeks after having them she isn't eating and she seems to be going blind in her right eye.....Does anyone know what could be worng with her. She is getting really skinny and lathargic and the vet cant see her til Monday. Im afraid she wont make it that long. Any ideas?
