no just him
and not really but his fur is white in that section:(
possible pee maybe?
 
but its extremly hard:(
 
Re: how to get this off of him:(

Where on Harvey is the clump? Is Harvey housed with another male guinea pig? It's possible that it's a lump of ejaculate, also called boar glue. It dries very hard and it hard to get off!

Can you upload a photo?

I agree with you
 
no hes alone & its a small clump under him on his chest how can i get it off cuz im sure i can treat it the same as boar glue
 
Re: how to get this off of him:(

i can get a picture its in a very difficult spot and matches with his fur - white:/
could he have his own boar glue on himself?
 
sounds like matted hair to me...? cutting it is the way to go :(

okay thank you im pretty sure tht is what it is lol poor boy its eritating him:(
any idea how to get it off?
&thank you very much!

I'm not sure science has progressed to figure this out. Seriously, you could probably use it as an aerospace adhesive; it is really tough to get off. He may eventually work it out, or you can let the hair grow a bit and cut it out. There really is no cleaning it out.
 
Re: how to get this off of him:(

haha great poor harvey:( thankyou and thats probly what it is then! any idea how to get it off?:(
 
Re: how to get this off of him:(

sorry i refreshed the page and i didnt see tht u replyed & tht my message sent! sorry & thankyou for your help:)
 
Give it a few days -- the hair will grow out enough to cut it off.
 
I've never had that happen to mine, (having gluey stuff on their necks), but it sounds icky wicky to the poor snuggly wuggly!:guilty: You probably got all the info ya' need, but if the others don't work, maybe ask someone if saoking it in something would work!:)
