Lucky was diagnosed with a bladder stone - these stones are often caused by a high calcium level in guinea pigs urine. Lucky underwent an abdominal surgery called a Cystotomy to remove this stone.
General anaesthesia is very risky in small exotics such as rabbits, guineas, mice and rats so we were all exceptionally happy to have Lucky round following her successful operation.
Lucky made a speedy recovery and was discharged home for on-going care the next day :-)
