    I am a momma of Guinea Pigs. I would like to know how do you determine if GP Momma is Overdue? What are signs?

    Re: OreoMa94

    What do you mean, you feel a plug?

    If she's very pregnant, we don't recommend handling her or even poking around very much. Better indications of possible delivery are hearing the pups gnash their teeth, and the spread of the pubic bones. That can be checked without picking her up out of the cage.

    That's not a plug. That looks like oxidized urine.

    Why did you have to take her to the vet?

    I have no experience with guinea big pregnancy/labor/delivery. However, I do know that the mucus plug on a human woman can regenerate itself in order to keep the pregnancy from infection. Maybe that could be the case here? Wishing your sow a safe delivery and healthy little piggies to come.
