Well I have been spending most of the afternoon running back and forth to the guinea pig hutch. Maple seems to have a bit of a runny bottom, not very severe, but I am just keeping an eye on him all the same.  He seems perky enough in his personality but cavies can go down hill so quickly.

After reading and re-reading my small selection of guinea pig books and searching the internet I think the cause is from me feeding too many vegetables, so I am following the advice of experts and taken away all the vegetables, changed the bedding, put in plenty of fresh timothy hay and fresh water.

I can’t relax though.  Hopefully he will be better in the next twenty-four hours.
