    @squeakypigs Please add Jen Quayle onto the Rose Cottage post. Ken, why usually sees our cystic piggy, was off work a back injury, Jen successfully spayed her with great expertise and care, as the hormone injections were not successful. Thanks

    I have a good vet, thank goodness. But he didn't put a splint on my babies broken leg so he put her down :( Right after that, I found out that you could get splints for guinea pigs and I was so sad :-(

    Aw that's sad. Sorry you lost her. Our first vet misdiagnosed cystic ovaries 3 times and only when I pushed for a scan did we get the right diagnosis. Hence we moved, luckily we all have her.

    Hi, you are in the wrong thread. Go to home page... Forums... Health & illness.. And post an urgent thread there. I hope your piggy is ok? Was it coughing?

    I am recommending

    Lomond Hills Veterinary Clinic in Leslie, Fife.

    106 High Street
    Leslie
    Glenrothes
    KY6 3DB
    Telephone 01592 748 868
    E-mail info@lomondhillsvets.co.uk


    I have taken my boys here and also Uncle James's and always have always left very happy under the care of Adele. I have even managed to get an appointment within five minutes of calling.

    Adele used to work for Inglis (Dunfermline) which is in the recommended vet locator. She loves guinea pigs and knows a lot about them! It is also under £13 for a consultation (both boys usually go together).

    Can add 2 exotic vets please. The first is Pru Harvey. Although she hasn't dealt with my pigs she has operated on and successfully treated my crested gecko. Fantastic vet. The second is Richard Hazard also training as an exotic. He has treated both my pigs and gecko. Both can be found at the 'Veterinary Hospital Group in Plymouth.

    I phoned this surgery yesterday and was told Fiona Diamond no longer works at this surgery. I had a bad experience with the male vet there with a previous piggy so perhaps her details could be taken off the vet locator. They said she went to work freelance as a locum.
