Wallace and Gromit were rescued in September 2012 together with other 16 Guinea Pigs who's owner failed to provide correct care for them and left them suffering from mange mites, some Guinea Pigs had bad scabs on their backs, Wallace included. He's recovered from that now and both Wallace and Gromit are available for rehoming with loving pet home.
Gromit has been already paired up with Wallace when they came in so I left the pair together. They are both Swiss, Gromit is smaller, possibly younger, less attractive in his looks but still a lovely Guinea Pig!
Thankfully the skin condition was nothing more than mange mite overgrowth which caused skin sores on Wallace's back. It was quickly sorted with proper anti parasite treatment, coat has grown back nicely and the Piggies are ready for their forever loving home. Pet home only of course! More pictures of the boys on their profile page.
Barry was brought in on Sunday the 18th of November, he's an older boar, at least 4 years old. He lost his companion and the owners didn't want to continue getting Guinea Pigs and though it was unfair of Barry to be alone. Due to age and impaction problem he'll remain in Piggy Kingdom for the rest of his life, he also has few scabs on his back which look like mange mite problem rather than chronic skin illness as it was described to me. He's been treated for parasites with bimectin and I apply tea tree cream to his sore skin three times a day. In no time he should be as good as new.
