As you know, the best healthcare for your pet is preventative health. It’s much better to prevent problems with health by keeping guinea pigs on good diet and watch their behavior to notice the signs of illnesses and diseases. This strategy will avoid expensive vet bills and make your guinea healthy.
The rule of the wild is severe : predators will kill the injured or sick guinea pig and that’s why this little creatures try to hide the fact that they are sick. That’s a good strategy but sometimes it’s really difficult to find out what’s wrong with the piggy. Until it’s too late you should watch the behavior of your pet and “kill” the disease or illness at the beginning. The chart below will help you to find out what’s wrong with your piggy but keep in mind that it’s better to go to the vet clinic with a good specialist.
