Guinea Pigs/Guinea Pig hind leg paralysis

Question
I just wanted to know which liquid calcium bottle I should buy for my guinea pig to treat the paralysis.

Answer
honestly this is out of my league, the only calcium drink i have ever known is when you soak a cuttle fishbone in water overnight.

for actual treatment i cn only recommend a vets opinion, though paralysis unless temporary is unlikely to be effectivly treated by calcium water so far as i am aware.

sorry i couldnt help more
all the best

Expertise

I can answer most questions on breeding rearing and housing, though I would like to stress now that unless someone is wishing to keep all the offspring produced I do not support breeding. I have reasonable experience with illnesses and can offer a few remedies. I have a high level of knowledge on handling, social habits, herding and dietry requirements, as well as being able to deliver a crash course in their natural habitat if people wish to know.

Experience

I have owned guinea pigs for several years and was formerly a fosterer for a rescue home and as such have experience with common illnesses, pairing, constructing and managing housing and of course handling (also having just moved I am going to resume a rescue role shortly) and have in the past bred them.

Organizations
I am a member of the Cavy Club website.

I do not possess any credentials in this area other than charitable work, but I have worked with what must be hundreds of guinea pigs in the past and as such have learned a lot about the little blighters!
