Might be.. (General Discussion)

..something caught in its throat? You might try putting a little olive oil down the throat to help dislodge whatever it is and move things along. Also could be gapeworm. The main symptom when a guinea has gapeworm is an open beak with wheezing or gasping. To check for gapeworm, look down the guinea's throat with a flashlight. If there are gapeworms, you should see some small red, thin worms that look like Y's. That's the male and female gapeworms joined together. Once symptoms are noticed, it can be hard to treat.

Hope it's nothing serious. Please let us know how it's doing.
