LACTATION

"Lactation usually lasts five to six weeks. When it is coming to an end, the mother will begin to push away her babies. The mother comes into milk twelve to twenty-four hours after the birth of her babies."

Living Alone

Post  Admin on Wed Mar 25, 2009 3:13 am

"Guinea pigs are social animals that enjoy the company of another guinea pig. When a companion is lost, the remaining guinea pig may grieve. Some guinea pigs may seem to do fine on their own but it is always wise to monitor closely for illness and to make sure your pet is eating well."

LABOR

Post  Admin on Tue Mar 31, 2009 2:41 am

"Should complications arise, it is extremely important that you have a veterinarian lined up for emergency care before the actual delivery."

"Normal labor should be short and sweet. The whole process from first contraction to last baby can be as short as 15 minutes, and up to 40 minutes depending on how many babies she has. "

Lip Sores

Post  Admin on Tue Mar 31, 2009 2:52 am

"Otherwise known as "Cheilitis"

"Most frequently these lesions are caused by a bacterial infection (typically Staphylococcus aureus) but there can be other causes like Candida (a yeast infection). A pox virus has been found in the UK which reportedly can cause cheilitis."
