This article covers all aspects of husbandry and nutrition, enabling the veterinary nurse to feel confident in advising owners about the correct care of guinea pigs. It describes signs of health, allowing the nurse to conduct an examination in a nurse's clinic and be able to recognise the first signs of disease. The last section covers nursing of the sick guinea pig, enabling nurses to care for guinea pigs in the clinic, and give advice to owners about how to nurse their pets at home.
