Junior Guinea Pig
- Oct 19, 2016
Hi guys! I have a quick question. I had my guinea pig Daliah out for lap time. I was giving her a piece of fruit for her to snack on and noticed her flapping her ears while eating. She was doing it every 10 secs or so. At first we thought she was excited and thought it was cute and funny. She finished her snack and I noticed she kept doing the ear flapping but more frequently so I started to just watch her. I noticed she's kind of tilting her head to the side and flapping her ears. Daliah is constantly making those happy bubbly noises but this time I can hear her make that little noise they make when they're annoyed or just a tiny wheek, then she tilts her head and flaps her ears and goes back to bubbly noises, it happens so quick and the wheeks are low you can barely notice it unless you pay close attention like I am. I'm not sure what this means? I'm a little concerned since I've never seen her do this before. Does anyone know what this means? I'm thinking of waiting until tomorrow and hoping it's gone or I'll take her to the vet on Friday. I'm concerned but I don't want to take her today since I've just noticed this now and the vet is expensive so if it's not something to worry about I'll wait and see but if it is I'll take her in. Please advice.
