Customer Question
Can a guinea pig...

Can a guinea pig get any kind of illness from a dog when they guinea pig and dog only touched nose to nose for a few seconds?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the guinea pig's name and age?

Patti. About 4 years old.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Patti?

She's not my pet. It is my neighbor's pet. I know she has had a recent eye infection.

I am sorry you are concerned about Patti. There are not many diseases that dogs transmit to Guinea Pigs. Was it the dog or the Guinea Pig that had the eye infection?

I have not heard back from you. How is Patti doing? Can I answer any other of your questions?
