Health Checks

A health examination by a guinea pig savvy veterinarian is an important part of keeping your guinea pig healthy and happy. One of the most common problems in guinea pigs is dental disease and a health check every 6 months will help to ensure that any dental problems are detected early. Other health concerns include dietary deficiencies, skin conditions, parasitic infections and respiratory issues.

The health and safety of our guests is of primary importance to us, which is why all guinea pigs must receive a health check within 12 months of their stay. We recommend Brisbane Bird & Exotics Veterinary Service as our veterinary clinic of choice, however any registered veterinarian competent in guinea pig care will suffice.
