It is crucial to understand this so please please do NOT be put off from adopting a boy guinea pig. This is an extreme case and the only one of its kind I have seen in 15 yrs.
I am sharing this because it is interesting and may help other guinea pigs that are also diagnosed incorrectly.
I also need to make it clear that I am not a veterinary.
This boy came for a nail clip and check up yesterday. His penis had a lot of skin that normally would be on the inside, now stuck on the outside and causing him great discomfort.
His mums took him to a vet who just looked it, said that she was very concerned about it, and did what most vets do when they have no clue what to do and that is prescribe antibiotics.
All he needed was a good clean and that is what he got yesterday.
I will never forget his eyes. They were dull when I picked him up first time and when I was finished helping him, his eyes had light. vibrancy and dare I say even a sparkle to them.
I fell in love with this little boy and he will be visiting again soon so I can see what his bizniz looks like now.
