    Unhappy Looking for help with my New Guinea Pig?

    My old Piggy’s name was Coco and we got him a friend named Yugi. When I got Yugi he had a fungal problem or mites. So I found ointment to ‘attempt’ to treat it. Coco has something on on his right eye now that I’m determined is also mites. Coco for a long time also has bumble foot on his right front paw. I’m looking for options for what I should DO!?!? The latest I can get both of my piggy’s in is 6 days from now. I’ll see how much earlier I can get them in. In the mean time, should I separate into different cages? Ty if you read and replied.

    He's extremely unlikely to have mites on his eye. It's far more likely to be fungus.

    I wouldn't separate them -- they've both already been exposed to whatever's going on.

    Can you post clear, well-lit pictures? Make ONE medical thread for each pig -- it makes it much easier for the people who read the medical forums to keep up with what's going on with your pig if all the information is in the same thread.
