View Full Version : Ovarian Cysts Ovarian cyst in 6yo piggy

02-10-09, 02:51 pm
My 6 year old guinea pig was recently diagnosed with a single ovarian cysts, and my vet said she could either be spayed, or we could leave them and see how long she keeps on for. I'm wondering what other people who've had older guineas spayed or operated on think - what are her chances and is it worth the risk?

How large is the cyst?

Did your vet mention doing hormone treatments in lieu of surgery?

Check GuineaLynx (and threads here) regarding ovarian cysts and the different treatment options.

I've had 2 pigs with Ovarian Cysts. One was spayed and the other was given hormone treatments. Both methods were successful. This thread will tell you all about it and has more information for you http://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/special-reference-topics/34562-ovarian-cysts-guinea-pigs.html

She had an ultrasound and the cyst is about 2.5cm across
