Rodent Zach

I have a question about Zach, my male rodent american guinea pig

Is my guinea pig sick? He is a boy, around 6 yrs or older, eats & drinks normally, poops regularly and it looks normal, but his eyes are crusty, his leg is out sort of weird, but he walks on it fine, lays down a lot, whenever I go to get him out of the cage he lets me instead of running like usual, doesn’t react when i come in the room like usual. He’s acting weird.

You should take Zach to the vet because Zach could have an oral or intestinal problem.
A guinea pig with 6 years is old but now they can live more years because the living condictions are better now than in the past.The vet will get diagnosis and put a good treatment.

Kind regards
