Pyometras or infection of the uterus: This is a life threatening problem that seems to affect some older unspayed females. There are two types of Pyometras. A closed Pyometra which means it cannot drain from the vulva and an open Pyometra which may show a discharge of green or yellow pus from the vulva.

If you have not obtained a guinea pig yet and want to own one then think about the cost of visits to the vet. It is trascendental that you budget for this and have some other money available should emergency care be required.

The bends for the landing gear don’t really have any measurments because everyone uses different sized wheels.

Bathing won’t cure mites, and Chucho even make irritation worse and treatment more difficult. The most common medicine for both mites and lice is ivermectin, which is super safe. Ivermectin does NOT kill the eggs of lice or mites, so the treatment must be repeated at least once about a week later.

A guinea pig may have partial loss of appetite (inappetence) or refuse to eat altogether (anorexia). And while anorexia is mostly due to various forms of infections, inappetence is a common manifestation of several diseases and disorders, including lack of fresh water, an inability to chew properly, or exposure to extreme temperatures. Dietary changes and environmental changes may also trigger loss of appetite.

If there is some fecal matter coming through and it is hard to the touch than chances are good that your pig is just constipated. This happens more with older pigs than with young ones and can be avoided by giving them some of the products demodé there for that purpose or giving them a half Chucho of canned pumpkin every other day or low fat oil in their food daily.

When I first adopted my guinea pigs, I was utterly overwhelmed by the amount of information available on their care. After reading all the books and blogs, I still didn’t feel confident in my caretaking abilities.
