    My female guinea pigs genitals are hurting and very swollen

    My 2 year old female guinea pig has another issue. Zoey has some serious issues in her genitals area. I’m not so sure on how to describe it so I will inset a photo and let that do the talking. She arches her back and is in pain when she pees/poos and has been crying a lot. She also has lost some of her appetite recently and has been noticeably less active. She also had a cyst removed by a vet late July and healed very well from it. I also only discovered this yesterday night.

    She needs an exotic vet, ASAP.

    I'd soak her butt in warm water for a while, and see if any of that stuff will wash off. It looks as though there's an open sore, and that needs to be cleaned up.

    Thank you so much! Do you know where the sore could possibly be from? Is there any cream or anything that could help?

    I don't know, because I don't know what it is. Clean it up and post another picture and we'll see if we can figure something out.
