If you decided to obtain an animal of this type first thing you should do is to find out as much as you can about this breed from books, friends, Internet, or a reputable breeder. It is important to know that presence of these rodents can be rather dangerous for people who are allergic to the hair of the animals. The first signs of the allergy include itchy eyes, sneezing, runny nose, persistent cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, a skin rash, and anaphylactic shock. If you noticed some of these signs it is necessary to turn to an allergist for examination and diagnosis. If at least one member of your family is allergic to the hair you’d better think about some other pet. To get an understanding of what some guinea pig illnesses look like, request a photo from breeders.
