Ronnie’s painful teeth

Did you know, guinea pigs have teeth that grow constantly throughout their lives?

Because they are always growing, if they start to erupt at an angle or are not being worn down properly they can start to cause problems.

This happened to Ronnie, who came into our Southam surgery to see Penny after he stopped eating his fresh food. Penny examined his mouth and found his back teeth had overgrown across his mouth and were causing discomfort.

Penny trimmed Ronnie’s teeth under anaesthetic and he is now eating completely normally. We will monitor his teeth closely as he may need his teeth trimming again in the future.
