My piggies has this lump on her lower back :/ I know it’s apparently common for guinea pigs to have lumps/cysts? Is there anything I could do at home to help. I’ll take her to the vets as soon as I can 273A767A-733C-4AE0-93E6-7A4622297B1F.jpeg

Please just leave it and try to get an appointment with the vet. In the meantime you could send a photo through to them with a description/explanation.

With things like this it is far better not to start with any type of home treatment, as this rarely cures the problem, just masks the symptoms and makes it harder for a vet to diagnose.

If you can send a photo, a vet may be able to give you instructions on what to do via e-mail, with a curbside pick up for any meds you may need.
