PENIS PROTRUDING

"There is one particular problem that some boars seem to get. It is very uncomfortable, and if it is not dealt with can lead to cystitis and worse. It is when the penis is found to be extruding."

Pregnancy

Post  Admin on Mon Mar 16, 2009 7:49 am

#1
"The number one problem is that you can never be sure just how close a sow is to giving birth, because you can never be sure just when she conceived."

FOR MORE INFORMATION -- http://www.oginet.com/pgurney/pregnancy.htm

ADMINISTRATOR'S NOTE ** This article gives great detail into the birthing procedure. It is important to note that we do NOT agree with deliberate breeding. This information is for people who've adopted a sow, and they're now discovering that she is pregnant.**

#2
"Guinea pig sows are at risk of pregnancy complications because the babies are born large and ready to run. Breeding after 8 months of age can be fatal for a guinea pig who has not had a previous litter due to dystocia."

FOR MORE INFORMATION -- http://www.guinealynx.info/breeding.html


#3
"Pregnancy and delivery are difficult for guinea pigs. The babies are born large, fully furred, and ready to run."

FOR MORE INFORMATION -- http://www.guinealynx.info/reproduction.html
_____________________________________________________________
Unplanned Litters

"If you end up with a pregnant guinea pig, first be sure to remove the boar. You will need at least two good size cages or a properly large cage sectioned off."

Paralysis.

Post  Admin on Tue Mar 17, 2009 11:47 pm

WARNING: ALL FORMS OF PARALYSIS NEED EXPERT ATTENTION."

PULSE RATE

Post  Admin on Sat Mar 21, 2009 1:59 am
