Guinea Pig Lump


This is just a quick post to put up a photo of a lump that I found on our guinea pig, Bunny, today. Hoping that some wise people on a gp forum can give me an opinion or two.





The 'hole' in the middle is where a nasty bit of stuff fell off as I parted his fur. You can feel a lump under his skin around the hole - about 2cm across.










This is what fell off the middle of the lump.

take your pig to a vet!

I agree that you should take Bunny to the vet. My cursory reading of web pages suggest that this might be an abscess caused by a scratch (apparently fairly common) so it sounds like it might well not be too serious but should be checked out. Good luck.

Hi all,

We have a vet appt for tomorrow afternoon. Wise people on gp forum think it very likely to be some kind of sebaceous cyst.

Put a hot compress on it. Then a load of lavender or garlic or tea tree...do the hot compress again..see if anything happens...maybe something needs to come out? Otherwise..good luck at the vets...
