Hi pet owners!
I have this trouble with my little female guinea piggy. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-1.gif
I also have 2cats,a Rottwailer and bird(all males) and thank you God they'r all healthy,but it's a pig that's making the troubles.
See,first week I bought her she was a couple of weeks old and was dry and everything,but couple of weeks later (yes,she's growing up),she has this wet fur around her bottom and she's discharging this stuff.
OMG,someone reply as soon as possible,I'm freaking out!!

If it's something out of the ordinary, take her to the vets for goodness sake Janny.

I think that's called wet tail. Take her to the vet immediately.

They don't have tails,the whole area at the bottom and even some on chest is wet from something she is discharging here n' then! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/silent.gif

Nateru,I'm hoping that she's healthy and that I don't need
to get her to vet cos u know how they'r expensive*sigh*.I guess cos animalz don't have insurance and health care :(

Some1 said that cos their females they experience that 1-in-a-month-thing but she's like not pragnant or anything and is about month old!?
Any1 who ownes or owned them or read about them or knows anything please don't hesistate to reply as soon as possible http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I know they don't have tails but that's what it's called.

Click Here (http://www.novalek.com/oprmd3.htm) for more info.

Also you need to get a book or ask a veterinarian about care for guinea pigs.

Here (http://www.ahc.umn.edu/rar/MNAALAS/GPig.html) is a website with more detail.

Janny, don't let the poor little thing suffer. The others are right...take her to the vet right away.

I understand what you're saying Janny, vets are expensive. But I have to say, if you can't afford it, don't have pets. One MUST always be responsible when owning a pet. It is not enough to love them. Get it sorted out, you will have peace of mind and your pet will be ok. That is worth the money http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Hold it hold it right there.I would NEVER put that poor thing in that situation if she did have SERIOUS problems.BTW,I luv animals more then anything http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif :D .
I called the place that I got it from and cos they'r taking care of them and have then all the time they know stuff about them I asked them what it is and they proved my thoughts:it's something females have for few dayz a month and it means that they'r ready for breeding.
I checked the wet-tail link and NO it's not that,she has heatlhy p00piez,lOl,so that's good,I checked the other site u gave me and it's really good LC8290,thanx for posting it for me! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif (I think i saw it be4 but it's hard to find this stuff again)
Nateru nateru,I have a little zoo in my house with about 6 pets,I had more,so U will probably never know how it is to care and buy them stuff for each.They all have their special needs and I luv them all to bits and luv caring for them,they'r like my kids http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif
So,this little dillema is resolved and I'm thankfull! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
