Guinea Pig need HELP!!!
  • alligator_28alligator_28 August 2007
    I am helping Fonda86, a new Guinea Pig owner to post about her newly bought GP which is suffering from a growth on it's anal. I will quote wat she says

    " dunno why around my bubu's anal ... there's a lot of white white things grow around it .... we try to bath him.... but still the same, seems like those things just grow from the skin... like bisul like that .... and it just stuck .... any idea how to treat him?"

    This is a photo of the infected area.

    Anyone knows how to treat this? Or maybe can suggest a vet around KL area that knows how to treat a GP.

    finally met the doctor. He's a very good and friendly one.

    Well, he said the things around the anal, probably is the things that hurt by the previous cage or whatever... caz what he touched, there's some dead skin too. He said no need worry about that.

    About BuBu legs ... he said maybe he lack of calsium or vitamin D, so he gave me oil based vitamin A and D to feed him one drop per day until his legs are fine.

    The skin drop around the eyes confirm is fungus liao... because those grow near the eye, cream is not good for him, becaz he will scratch whatever oily things near his eye/head and will worsen the situation. So the doctor asked me to feed him some medicine tablet mixed with water.

    and the doctor also gave me a bottle of neem shampoo. Doctor said, guinea pigs are very sensetive animal, they need some herbal based shampoo to bath them. this neem shampoo can for skin treatment, antiseptic and normal bath for them.

    conclusion is, feed him medicine, bath him and quarantine him from other for about one week time as the fungal can spread to other GP.

    Thanks for those who caring about him. D
