Comings and Goings

Three weeks ago, Honey joined the herd, bringing the number up to 4. Her weight bounces back and forth by several grams, and today she weighs in at 887 so I’m supplementing hand feedings again. Her mammary tumor seems to be stable at the same size, and she gets along well with the other guinea […]

down to 16

We put The Captain down today. He was the best little guy we’ve had and over the last few weeks he’s been on medication. It started with a head tilt and wobbling and I said to dismal, “ok but I need one more symptom” because head tilts can be either an inner ear issue or […]
