Wheekerpedia: Q

Q is for:

Quick: The fleshy part under the guinea pig’s nails. If the quick bleeds when the nails are cut dipping in Arrowroot powder can help to stop the bleeding, or run under a cold tap, the bleeding will stop and usually heals without a problem.

Quiet: Your guinea pig’s breathing should be quiet unless a condition is present (e.g mycoplasmic pneumonia). Guinea pigs with loud breathing should see a vet.
