    Red Lump Eye

    Hello, my guinea pig has had a small red lump at the bottom of her eye ever since I can remember, very small and looked like a small bit of skin poking up a little, but the past two days it's really bulging up and looks strange like an extra mass of tissue. She's got a vet appointment tomorrow...
