Pet ultrasounds have been of great help to vets of all animals but particularly cats and dogs which make up the bulk of their appointments.

Conjunctivitis is a bacterial infection of the conjunctiva, which is the transparent layer that covers and protects the eye. It's typically caused by streptococcus or Bordetella bacteria and is highly contagious. Conjunctivitis responds well to treatment, but if left untreated, the bacteria can spread to other parts of the eye and affect your guinea pig's sight. It's not always possible to determine how a guinea pig has contracted conjunctivitis, but potential causes include contact with other infected guinea pigs and an unclean living environment.
