Health Issues


Like other animals, cavies are subject to health disorders. Common disorders include, but are not limited to: respiratory, intestinal stasis, torticollis, dental, skeletal, neurological and urinary. While our health care page contains helpful information, a veterinarian that specializes in cavies and/or exotic animals is usually the best source of help for maintaining your guinea pig’s health. If you live in our area, we highly recommend our veterinarian.
