Hello,
We are currently ensuring we have all the right bits and bobs in our guinea first aid kit. Please drop any recommendations below.
At the moment we have ringworm/fungal cream left over from Bugzy’s infection, Loxicom, spot on gels for mites, nail clippers, a brush, syringes, gloves and also quick stop in the post.
I want to ensure we have all the things that we might need ‘immediately’. The rest of the items we have on an amazon list for next day delivery if we feel it’s required.
UK members please can you advise a good CBD gel & a good cream for hay pokes.

thank you all in advance :-)

If your piggy has hay poke you need to take him/her to the vet to check that there is nothing in the eye or hidden under the eyelid that you can't see such as a seed head. The vet will put in a special dye to check for ulcers and the prescribe the appropriate treatment. My Meg had such a bad haypoke she had 3 different eye drops 3 times a day for 5 weeks!
