    Unhappy lice? mites?

    So, I was talking to a man who is selling his guinea pigs and he sent me a picture of the one I was interested in. I see these white specks on the guinea pig and I was wondering if this is lice or mites (or even dandruff?) i dont see any signs of scratch marks on her body.

    Or it could be dry skin. There's really no way to have an opinion without a picture that's a close up.

    However, both mites and lice are treatable.

    Can you find a rescue near you, rather than purchasing one?
