    RIP Sandy... At least she lived out the end of her life in a place that took care of her properly, truly cared for her, and loved her...

    I got an infection from a public pool a couple years ago and it oozed. Turned out that the oozing almost got rid of the whole infection! Good luck with the little guy!!!

    I'm praying! I think oozing is OK cause it's getting rid of the infection, as long as it's not oozing blood. When My Cotton had his tumor out, his cut oozed for about a week and the vet didn't worry (I did at first!). That was 3 summers ago and he's fine now. I'll pray anyway though. Keep talking to your vet.

    She had given us an antibiotic for infections. But latley I noticed that all bite wounds do an oozy thing, and I'm not sure why.

    My advice is for you to read, read and read. Read all the stickies at the tops of all the forums, read the special and reference forum and don't give advice to others until you learn more yourself.

    Also go to www.guinealynx.info and read the medical info there. Toss any books or magazines you have about guinea pigs into the trash and start over from scratch with their care.

    I am concerned about your pigs diet. The diet plan they are on now does not sound very good. If you would like to discuss diet options with me, feel free to private message me and I will be glad to help you come up with a proper diet for these pigs.

    No we don't expect people to know everything. But you are here, I thought to learn. Instead of learning you are giving questionable advice and sometimes bad advice which this site will NOT tolerate. I understand you have been getting some of your info out of books. Throw the books in the trash and LEARN the proper ways of doing things, stop giving bad advice until you learn more about pigs, and be open to what people are telling you.

    These blogs aren't here for you to post your disgruntled feeling towards this forum.
