    Conditions New baby. One eye smaller than the other, possibly blind.

    Thanks everyone. She seems to be healthy other than the eye. She is sweet, more calm than our aby we have had for a month. she is a little firecracker and doesn't seem to like attention too much unless I'm feeding her lol. I'm already wishing I had went worth the bigger c&c cage instead of the...

    Thank you for your response. I just read up on that condition but I an a little confused. I obviously don't know what she was bred from bit it looks like it's saying that the eye condition is in what is called lethal guinea pigs and that they are always born white? Since she is not solid white...

    Sick guinea pig loss of balance??

    Sick guinea pig loss of balance??

    Just brought home a baby guinea pig today. Not sure of age but probably 8 weeks or so. I thought she was just really sweet since she didn't try to run when I picked her up from under the hidey. After getting her home and watching her in the cage I realize she didn't run because she can't...
