Guinea Pig Health Links
| Here are links to guinea pig health sites that I personally recommend. However, although all these links will give you a vast amount of information about guinea pig health problems, the information doesn't replace a consultation with your vet. If you suspect your guinea pig is poorly, please take your guinea pig to see your vet as soon as possible. Please note: Your vet needs to be a veterinary that works with exotic pets, guinea pigs, reptiles and small animals.|
I've also included lots of health links on my Guinea Pig Health Check page, that will take you directly to some specific health problems.
The Peter Gurney Guinea Pig Health Guide One of my favourite authors of guinea pig care books. Its an excellent site, covering many guinea pig health problems.
