    Question Is this normal?

    Willow has this odd white/gray thing in her eye for a while. At first I thought it was normal but now I just don't think it is...
    Her eye also is not really shiny.
    Here is a photo of her.

    some guinea pig's eyes are shiny as much as others. I think that white thing you are seeing is just her eye. Guinea pigs have white like we do around their pupil and iris, only the space of their pupil covers a larger area in their eye. If the eye seems like it is bothering her, you can take her to a vet. If she isn't holding it closed or anything usual, I would just watch her, she loos pretty good to me!

    Looks like osseous choristoma to me, but it's a small picture and I can 't really tell. See http://www.guinealynx.info/eyes.html and check out the pictures.

    If that's what it is, there's nothing to be done for it, but it won't hurt the pig.
