Hi there

I would suggest you take both your pigs for a check up with the vet - not only for the problem on the ear which hopefully is nothing more sinister than a small abscess - but also for a general health check on both, mite treatment if needed and to confirm the sexing if you are not able to sex them yourself.

The golden pig in your avatar looks to be a satin, if so you would be wise to read up more on the breed as they are more suspectible to osteodystrophy then normal coated guinea pigs.
