So yesterday my friend decided she didn't want her pig anymore and asked if I would take him otherwise he'd go to the humane society so I took him because I have a serious love for these animals <3
So anyways, I picked him up and he was really dirty, his nails were also very long..almost curled into a circle ..it was sad. My first instinct was to bathe him which I did, and clipped his nails. While bathing him I noticed his testicles looked huge, almost swollen :( I don't know hat the issue is, has anyone seen this before? He's eating and pooping lots so that not a concern and he's not showing any signs of pain at all..

Welcome to the forums! That was really nice of you to take on board the poor neglected pig! He's a lucky boy to have found a new home where he'll be loved and cared for. He's really adorable!

Bpatters has pretty much answered your question so I'll just add that aside from these forums, this is a good starting point to begin reading about everything you'll want to know about guinea pigs (if you haven't already):

Welcome to the forum!

To me his testicles look normal but I'm concerned about his penis, it doesn't look right. Can you post a more detailed photo of his entire genitalia?
