Harvey arrived at Tees Valley Guinea Pig Rescue just after 10pm on Sunday night & had what looked like an abscess on the righ hand side of his face.

I rang the vets first thing Monday morning & he was taken in to see the vet at 11am. Even the vet thought it to be an abscess that needed lancing but after I left him & she operated it turned out to be much bigger that that. It was a growth or tumour on his right hand cheek down to chin & a lot had to be removed. I've added 4 pictures of the operation site so you can see how bad it was & I've added a picture of him eating afterwards too. Surprisingly he was eating fine last night & again this morning so it's looking liely that he will make a full recovery. Originally we were told that he had been bitten by another guinea pig then this changed to a dog but at least he is treated now & getting lots of tlc :) x

I managed to find these 2 pictures that Shannon who rescued him on Friday took on the same night so obviously before his op:-
