Hello, I have noticed that whenever the right back leg of my guinea is touched she shakes/twitches her head, I am just wondering if this is a cause of concern and if I should get her checked up? I saw her nibbling her leg once and so I gently rubbed it to see if she was just itching and she reacted in this way. I'm sure that she could just not like being touched there but since it seems to be only the one leg, I am slightly concerned.

Any advice? Thanks. :hmm:

If your piggy is older then it’s a possibility. Do have her seen by a vet and keep us posted.

Welcome to the forum.
Do let us know how things go at the vet.
Hope it’s nothing serious
