    Chubby Monroe - lump in bum

    My guinea pig has recently appeared with a rather large lump on his bum. He has been fine, eating and drinking well but when I touch he sounds like his in pain. I am super conscious and paranoid. What should I do? What even is it?

    Take him to the vet. A pig that's in pain needs to see a vet. A pig with a lump needs to see a vet.

    Choose an exotic vet. Small animal vets treat dogs and cats, not pocket pets, and some of them are downright dangerous.

    It sounds like it has appeared and grown rather rapidly? If so it is most likely an abscess.

    I would second a likely abscess. Let us know how it goes and if you need any more advice on this!

    I have been to emergency vet and they said it is a poop impacting but we have caught it early. Thanks all for your suggestions.

    He is currently on antibiotics and we clean his bum once a day.
