This is something that just showed up today. benny had this white lump underneath the chin. I just brought him to the vet less than a month ago for what turned out to be a bacterial infection in the genitals but no other problems were discovered. Benny is eating and drinking and acting perfectly normal. Benny got cut there by my other guinea pig before I seperated their cage for good but that was almost 3 months ago so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. I am so worried about this :(
has anyone ever had anything similar? image.jpeg

I'm really glad your piggie is ok.
Plus I found this thread slightly hilarious (now I know he is ok of course).
You wait - I bet the same thing happens to me now.

Boar glue on the nose is where you usually get it - and with the hair so short, it is rather difficult to get rid off without ripping off lots of hairs... You'd rather not want to enquire too closely what piggies do down there while they look for redigestible poos! :yikes:

That would be the most hilarious vet visit ever, and if I hadn't seen this thread I would be the first one to bundle my pig into a carrier and race off to the vet, totally convinced they had some form of evil disease. :doh:
