    Limping suddenly

    I came home from work today and suddenly my young boy Scooter has a VERY pronounced limp. He holds his front right foot off the ground no matter what, not putting any weight on it.

    Injured Leg - Ideas?

    Hi there, I got my 6 year old female Guinea pig out of the cage today and noticed that she was limping rather heavily and not wanting to bear weight on her back right. Any ideas what it could be? She will rest on it when she's sitting, and she's fine with us touching it (gently, of course)...
