Lynx- can I send you a picture of her and how pear shaped she is so you can add it the this thread?
Please read closely the guidelines for determining a good weight on this page and examine each of your guinea pigs. Let us know your results.
I'm probably not going to see them for a while though- I'm leaving for sleep away camp this weekend, and then I won't be going the next week, so I'm not going to be able to evaluate them for at least two weeks.
Do you think she looks overweight/underweight? For the 5 months we had them, we feed them none of the pet store treats, and only the rare tiny piece of fruit or applesauce when they were leaving ;). We feed them hay 24/7 and oxbow food which they rarely finished, and veggies. They also got about 30 mins of floor time per day, usually with lettuce spread on the ground so they would actually move, lol! I'm not sure about if they're currently getting treats, but I know that they're currently being fed hay most of the time, a good amount oxbow, lettuce, and the occasional pice of another kind of vegetable, but they don't get any floor time.
I still wanted to take her to the vet. I tried to convince my parents, but they said we should do it because they aren’t ours currently, and that she seemed better. I’m going to visit her on Thursday. I don’t think there’s anything I can do besides try and convince her owner (unlikely) or my parents. I’m just unsure how I should approach this.
Anyway, she’s looked better so that’s a plus, but I can’t really tell because I didn’t spend a lot of time with her. Sorry, this is supposed to a medical thread!
