    Guinea pig breaks her front tooth

    Hello! I was doing a health check on my piggies, and I found that Ruby broke her tooth! I’ve seen cases that piggies break their teeth & they grow back on their own.

    I noticed that one cage had slighly lose stools for months but I thought it was Rebecca and took her to the vet to find it was a UTI. I separated her from her cage mate, Benji, for 3 days to see who was doing the stools but they both seemed normal so I put them back. The loose stools came back...
