Customer Question

Guinea pig fell and now is not using his rear leg. He is not putting weight on it but is tucking it under himself
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: Yeah no wound but some bruising under his foot near the ankle
JA: The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the guinea pig's name and age?
Customer: Hans and he is 8 weeks old
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Hans?
Customer: Nope just he is under weight
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
