Why Prioritize Eye and Ear Care?

Guinea pigs, these adorable little balls of fur, are incredibly sensitive and can easily suffer from eye and ear problems. Conjunctivitis can be the first sign of a cold, especially in winter, when these little creatures are more vulnerable. Yet a simple cleaning routine with sterile gauze and saline can make all the difference. Additionally, a diet rich in vitamin C, including red and green peppers, plays a key role in strengthening their immune system.

The ears of our guinea pigs should not be neglected. Dryness and earwax buildup can cause discomfort and itching, not to mention the risk of ear mites. Periodic cleaning, adapted to the recommended frequency of two to three times a year, helps prevent these inconveniences and keep your companion in the best health conditions.

Comment nettoyer les yeux d'un cochon d'Inde ?

Comment vérifier la santé des yeux chez un cochon d'Inde ?
   

Examinez régulièrement les yeux de votre cochon d'Inde pour des signes d'irritation, de rougeur, ou de sécrétion anormale. Les yeux doivent être clairs et vifs. Tout changement dans l'apparence ou le comportement (comme se frotter les yeux) devrait être évalué par un vétérinaire.

Peut-on utiliser des produits humains pour nettoyer les oreilles et les yeux des cochons d'Inde ?
