Intestinal obstructions

Guinea pigs are frequently diagnosed with gastrointestinal stasis (GI stasis), however, some of these guinea pigs may be suffering from an intestinal obstruction, which often have an acute onset and requires rapid and very different treatment to GI stasis in order to have a chance of a successful outcome. Although intestinal obstructions are rare in pet guinea pigs, they are considered an emergency and should be addressed promptly.
