Many of the guinea pigs that Guinea Pig Fun takes in are those with special needs or those with health problems that may make them un-adoptable unless treated or rehabbed. This page and the following health pages focus only on the medical issues that Guinea Pig Fun has dealt with over the years and therefore only reflects our own experiences rather than those of others or what may be the norm or what you may find in books or on other Internet resources. Please click on a photo below to access information on the topic. WARNING: These pages may contain or link to graphic-medical images!



IMPORTANT, if you have any concerns about the health of your guinea pigs please go to an experienced exotics vet who regularly and successfully treats guinea pigs. Your pet's life may depend on it!
