    The price for surgery will vary with any vet, and prices vary a lot even within the same city. For what it's worth, I would stick with the exotic place because you know they are trained to deal with...

  10. Hair Loss: Re: Pulled out a clump of hair when picking up guinea pig

    They're most common in sows aged 2-4 years, and studies have found them in 76% of guinea pigs aged 1.5 to 5 years.

    I'm not saying it's definitely ovarian cysts. I've never had sows. But hair...
  11. Hair Loss: Re: Pulled out a clump of hair when picking up guinea pig

    I'm wondering if it may not have something to do with ovarian cysts. That's what it sounds like to me.

    Sick: Re: Penicillin G Injections

    Injected antibiotics are almost always better than oral, for that very reason. It's entirely up to you whether you do the shots or not but if he isn't improving without them, is it worth a try?
