    Abscess: Re: Help for Huckleberry

    We picked up some betadine today at the store. I've read the dilution formula on Lynx and we are going to try it.

    The big wound on his back I am guessing may need stitches. Everything looks...

    Abscess: Re: Help for Huckleberry

    We were able to soak and flush the wound to clean it out. Later this evening we cleaned it again and thankfully it wasn't full of blood. Flushed it and then found two smaller abscess wounds on...

    Abscess: Re: Help for Huckleberry

    We removed the blood by using warm water in a syringe and many qtips to try and work out the dried scabby blood. There was a little puss in there. It looks better than it did. I put some...

    Late last night we discovered an abscess on the side of Huckleberry. Last Saturday, he and his former cage mate got into a fight. Eeyore got injured, we are treating him, and his wounds are healing...
  6. Introductions: Re: A question about introducing a new guinea

    I've been talking to a lady that has a one year old boy who she doesn't have time for, due to work and life circumstances. I am hoping we can get him and that they get along well.
  7. Introductions: Re: A question about introducing a new guinea

    Unfortunately, I do not live near a rescue, I'm in Maine. The nearest one is 70 miles away and I do not have a car, currently. We are planning on getting him a buddy next week, hopefully.
  8. Introductions: A question about introducing a new guinea

    I just lost my guinea Nemo yesterday. He has a cage mate, Eeyore, and I was wondering how soon should I start to think about getting him a buddy. Eeyore is almost a year old.

    Would it be best...

    Farewell my little rockstar

    I had to put Nemo to sleep yesterday after we found out via ultrasound, that he had a hole in his heart. He had fluid around his heart and in his chest cavity. His heart was pushing up against his...

    I've looked at the Guinea Lynx heart section quite a few times. I just got done reading a few posts on GL, one having to do with Arrhythmia. I am still very confused. He does have fluid in his...

    Heart Issues: How to treat an arrhythmia...

    Hello,

    Last week my piggie, Nemo, was diagnosed with an arrhythmia and was given Atenolol. Anyone familiar with this medicine? I don't really notice any change in him.

    These are his symptoms...
  13. Vet: Re: Looking for vets in Maine or New Hampshire

    Yes I have, that is where I got the one in Gorham, Maine. I just wanted to see if there was any others that I wasn't finding and had personal experience with the hospitals. There is only one review...

    She was a beautiful girl! I lost my Moo last night. Perhaps they are running around together, pop-corning and enjoying hay and veggies. Sorry for you loss. <3

    Moo will be forever missed.....

    Sadly, last evening, we lost Moo. She had been gasping for air for about half the day, and we knew it wouldn't be long. We had decided to take her to an emergency clinic in Scarborough, to have her...

    Went back to the vets today, Dr Ann looked in her mouth and said her sores were just about healed. Her molars still look good after the planing and filing. The poor thing does have TMJ and we are...

    Mouth: Re: Moo has the slobbers..

    She said that if the elongation isn't too far gone, that a chin sling would/may help. I guess she has a pig with the same problem.

    I want to at least try the sling, and I am very aware that right...

    Mouth: Re: Moo has the slobbers..

    I should probably be a little more accurate about her eyes, most of the time they are dry, sometimes when I take her out to feed her, she will have a minor clear crust on her fur. When I am feeding...

    Well I have an update of sorts. Two vets later. Apparently Moo has elongated roots. Also, she had spurs and her teeth were starting to bridge over her tongue. She also had/has sores in her mouth,...

    Mouth: Re: Moo has the slobbers..

    I've been giving her metacam for a few days now, not much of a change. At first I thought it was the teeth that had been filed too short, causing her to drool. And it was just a matter of waiting...
