Sponsor a Guinea Pig for November!

Posted in Sanctuary Spotlight at 4:39 am by ACR&S

Time again to Sponsor a Rescued Guinea Pig! NOVEMBER‘s guinea pig of the month is Sono, a one year old guinea pig with the Critter Connection in Connecticut. She was a stray guinea pig brought to animal control, where she was then picked up by the Critter Connection–and just in time! Sono was malnourished, dehydrated, and suffering from vitamin C deficiency. An x-ray showed that metabolic changes were occuring in her spine, either from an injury or the severe malnourishment. She suffered from infections in three out of four of her footpads. These are classic signs up a guinea pig being housed on a wire floor.

Sono now has a daily medication schedule, as well as daily food and vitamin supplements. She also needs daily physical therapy. This only the start of her recovery. Despite all her woes, Sono remains a plucky pig, always happy for attention.
