    I'm sorry your sow is experiencing this. My friend an elderly sow with an ovarian cyst, about 3 years ago. I think you mean Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, this is basically a injection that regulates hormones, as an ovarian cyst is usually do to elevated hormones, like estrogen. Just how old is your sow? Surgery is in general dangerous for guinea pigs, most likely because not many vets specialize in exsotic animals, you may have to find a vet that does specialize in exscotics, and has experience with performing surgeries on them. You could also ask neighbors that own exsotic animals, and ask them where the get there animal treated.

    The Human Gonadotropin is effective against some ovarian cysts in guinea pigs, but not in others. I'd far rather have an inexperienced vet give my pig the hormones than to have him perform surgery on the pig.

    There is an online reference for veterinarians, VIN.com, which your vet should be able to access. Information on both treatments is available there.
