Hi everyone, One of my guinea pigs has been doing some strange looking poops over the last few days. They are joined together in like a string or in a little clump. I was wondering if one of them is starting to suffer from impaction. I am suspecting it could be Bill, he is roughly 3-4 years old and is neutered. ( I adopted him so I'm not sure of his exact age) BIll also lives with Custard and Gerri (girls) who are also approx 4 years. I have checked their rear ends and the girls look fine and all i could see with bill was that he had one normal looking poop stuck there. He didnt seem swollen around the area at all. They are bedded on newspaper and hay and get fresh veggies once a day, they also have pets at home muesli mixed with excel blackcurrant and oregano nuggets and timothy hay in their hay rack. I was wondering if it could be Gerri who is doing them as she has just recovered from cystitis and she has 2 ovarian cysts. Has anyone got any suggestions. Btw, they all seem their usual selves otherwise, just as active and keen for their food as they usually are. Thanks in advance for any advice.
