Illness Of Guinea Pig

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

A common illness of guinea pig is bacterial infection; compare a picture of a healthy one to a photo of an unhealthy one. One of the common problems of these animals is connected with their teeth. If the upper and lower premolar teeth meet improperly while chewing, it results in abnormal wear of these teeth. This in turn causes injury to the tongue and as a result, the animal stops eating, because this process becomes very painful. Weight loss in this case is often dramatic. If you’ve noticed that your cavy stopped eating, you should immediately consult a veterinarian. If the diagnosis is confirmed, correction of the problem will involve general anesthesia and aggressive trimming or filing of the overgrown teeth.

The animals don't burrow themselves, but use abandoned burrows of other animals. The males are very aggressive when they reach maturity; thus they start battles that usually occur between them and the leader. The weaker males submit and are driven from the herd into a new location with a single female. In captivity the loser may die of starvation and exhaustion, because the dominant male drives it from water, food, and sleeping spots. Therefore the weak male should be separated from sexually mature males. Two males however can peacefully live together if they are neutered and never in contact with females. A common illness of guinea pig is bacterial infection; compare a picture of a healthy one to a photo of an unhealthy one.
