    Small lump near testicle

    Hi all I was hoping for some guidance, I’ve noticed today that my boar has a small (size of a jelly bean) hard moveable lump about an inch above his testicle, near his stomach. He’s eating normally, drinking normally and as far as I’m aware, going to the toilet as normal. I’m going to call my...

    How long can we wait?

    Hi, I tried to book an appointment with the vet (one that I haven't been before) and when no one got back to me I phoned them up and I suppose they must be swamped, because I've got an appointment for a week from now and I'm not sure if we can wait that long. So my piggie started having more...

    Butt/back lump removal/advice

    My guinea pig Peach (2 years old, female) recently developed a lump on her back/booty area maybe 2 weeks ago. I, of course, took her to the vet, though she seemed (and continues to seem) absolutely fine - eating, drinking, zooming, etc. The vet first attempted to drain the lump, in case...

    So the Steve saga continues. I have created a different thread solely because this is not bloat related and something else entirely- tho I respect if you think it is wise to move it there. ☺️ So he has perked up thankfully and today is basically my old Steve boi🥳 however I still decided to...

    Abdominal Mass

    Hello. This is extremely hard to write, but my little baby Pumpkin went in for a vet recheck today (she was not eating due to having a bad reaction to Baytril, but she's eating now) and the vet felt a mass on her abdomen. We aren't exactly sure of the location, but the assistant told us it was...

    Guinea pig lump on back :(

    Hi everyone, Yesterday, my partner was giving our long haired boys a hair cut (and they hate it anyway) but one of them was squealing as if we were really hurting him. Didn’t think anything of it as they are normally an absolute nightmare when it comes to grooming, but as my partner was...

    Big lump on guinea pig (know what it is?)

    My guinea pig has had this large lump on her far body on the side of her back and we are just wondering what this is, we think it might be a harmless cyst or maybe a tumour. We’ve had her for almost 6 years and she’s never been sick, she’s never seemed to be in pain and hasn’t lost her appetite...

    Weird lump. Tumor?

    I noticed this weird thing in my guinea pigs fur this morning and thought it was just goop in his hair. At closer examination, the skin around it is raised almost like a lump and it seems it split open and now this hard white goop is coming out of it that has dried. Does anyone know what it is?

    Hi there, My 4yo boar Thunder has 2 peasized lumps under his nipple, next to/attached to a larger softer lump. They haven't grown significantly in the past 5 weeks but I don't know the status before that as my parents had him for a couple of months before Christmas while I moved. The vet...

    Old wound? - Can anyone help me identify this lump please?

    Hi forummers! This is my first post here although I have frequently benefitted from the shared knowledge on this site! Today I adopted a 2.5 year old rex called Luna from a family where the children had lost interest in their GPs and so they were becoming an burden for a hardworking mum. Luna...

    Lump under guinea pig’s nipple.

    I’d been noticing a strange brown liquid coming from Peppa. At this point I hadn’t been sure where it was coming from as there wasn’t anything there that I could tell from. It had only happened twice until tonight it happened again and I decided to look at the source. It was coming from her...
