Skin Rash or Breaking Out?

Post by H Robinso » Tue, 07 Apr 1998 04:00:00



We have two guinea pigs that have been having problems with their
skin. Every time they yell, they seem to cry out. The doctors here
are not experienced enough to figure out what is going on. Are there
any ideas why their skin is getting irritated.

Almost certainly it is mange mite, which will get worse and eventually cause
extreme distress or even death. Get yourself a vet who knows about small
mammals. Or, in the short-term if you can't find one, treat with a cat or dog
flea treatment andmake sure that it gets right down to the skin down the line
of the spine from shoulder backwards.

An excellent book is V.C.G Richardson's "Diseases of Domestic Guinea Pigs"

Took an hour to bury the cat. Damn thing kept moving.
