UPDATE - Guinea pig health - some advice please

Ive just cleaned out our piggies and found that one had a little fresh blood on her bottom, Ive cleaned her up and she doesnt appear to still be bleeding.

Ive never seen this before and Im sure wed have noticed as shes all white.

Ive just given her a good check over and she has two lumps on her tummy, about 5p sized, that Im sure werent there yesterday as her checked her over when I got her out as I always do.

She seems absolutely fine in herself other than being hot and laying flat on her tummy to try to cool down, but theyre both doing that.

Ill be phoning the vet in the morning but I was just wondering if anybody else had any experience with guinea pigs that could offer and advice. These are the first Guiana pigs weve had.

The best advice possible is what your already doing in taking your Piggy to the vets. Hope things are ok for her.

UPDATE - wow I hadnt realised just how expensive treatment would be.

Just back from vet who checked piggy over. She wasnt worried at all about the blood but was concerned about the lumps. She found three after having a good poke around.

Gave us two options, 1 - test the lumps before deciding what to do - 140 or 2 - remove them straight away - 350 😱 and todays consultation cost 30 on top of that.

Ive booked her in to have them removed in the morning as I thought that would be the best option. If we waited for test results they could come back and say they need removing anyway so that would still be another 350 to pay. As theyve appeared so quickly and there are three they cant be good in my opinion so best to get them out ASAP instead of waiting. The vet did say she didnt think they felt like fatty lumps.

Hopefully shell do ok with the anaesthetic tomorrow and recovery wont be too traumatic for her.

My OH keeps piggies (lots of them) and I agree - the vet bills are always an ouch.

Hope everything goes ok with yours. It's amazing how attached you get to them.

Thanks all.

Our piggies are very vocal, they can here rustling and veggie chopping even when the windows and doors are shut 😂 Im hoping theyll not be too upset that we need to keep them separate. Vet said ten days whilst stitches heal.
