Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with a special interest in pet health. I'm so sorry for the loss of your daughter's guinea pigs. Some additional information may help me figure out what is wrong.

What symptoms do they exhibit before dying?

What are they fed - both basics and treats?

What kind of litter/bedding do you use in the cage?

What is the temperature in the room where they are kept?

How old were they at the time of death?

Thank you.
