    My guinea pig has tooth root abscess, have anyone ever take their guinea pig to get lower teeth extracted?

    Hello, I'm from Thailand and not a native speaker so I'm sorry for my English in advance. One of my guinea pigs is about 2 years old, he has been having tooth abscesses for 4 months now. The vet recommended us to have the tooth extracted because it is likely that said tooth's root is the cause...

    Can anyone tell if this is a scab or something else?

    Hi everyone, I posted about my boy Eggs having a (second of the year) abscess lanced a couple weeks ago. The abscess was a very fluid consistency so the vet didn’t want it drained further at home like when his prior one was cottage cheesy, just cleaned on the exterior for a few days. Used...

    Jaw abscess

    I was wondering how long it usually takes an abscess to grow. I noticed a grape sized lump at around 9pm today and by 11pm it was golf ball sized. He's still got a big appetite for his liquid food. It's definitely related to molars because he chipped a front tooth awhile ago. vet said his molars...
