    I'm sorry for the pup from Chocolate. However from the sounds of it I think there is more going on with it then just an injured leg.

    I would do a treatment for mites, just on the small chance she may have mites making anything touching her so much worse. If you treat for mites and no one has them it doesn't do any harm. Treat both...

  13. Mouth: Re: Need help Can anyone tell me what this could be on his lip?

    Without being able to look at it in person it could be a number of things, it could be dry skin, it could be an old scab, but i think it is most likely to be a bit of dried boar glue.

    Hair Loss: Re: Found A tuft of fur, why?

    I wouldn't be super concerned by just the one tuft. It may simply be an old scab coming off from a small nip from another guinea pig. Just keep an eye on them for more, as sometimes fungal infections...
