I’ll try to make this short. I rescued two guinea pigs about 2 weeks ago from becoming snake food. When I got them I noticed lumps on their throats. I contacted a rescue to try to help them because I could not afford to take them to the vet. One of them is sick so she has to wait to get the abscesses drained. But one of them did get them drained. The lady that took them in told me they got the “holes” from almost becoming snake food. She said that a snake tried to eat them but they were too big so they couldn’t eat them. And that’s where the abscess came from, from the snake biting them in their necks. Poor babies.
Now the question: is it possible that the abscess have been there for 6 months? I emailed the lady I got them from and asked her about it and she swears to me that it did not happen when in her care. She got them in November. She said she got them from a reptile show, so is it possible this happened in November before she got them and the guinea pigs have just had them since then?
