Answer

you should check that it has not broken the blood circulation, if it has, bathe it in warm, salt water and keep it clean. If it hasn't, don't worry!!

Answer

if there is blood coming out of the nail, it has broken the blood circulation.

Answer

If its bleeding, a powder available from the pet shop such as quickstop will stem the flow. If you can't get to a pet shop then corn flour can make a pretty good substitute. Crumble some into a bottle top and dip the bleeding nail into it

An overgrown guinea pig nail is long and normally curled. If the nail isn't clipped, then the curled nail can begin to grow underneath the guinea pig's paw and cause pain. A guinea pig's claws should be clipped once a month.

Guinea Pigs do not have holes in there back. your guinea pig probobly has a growth on its back. You should see a vet if it doesnt go away!

the nails of your guinea pig should not be too long. you can check on this when you carry your cavy, if it is too sharp then you need to trim it. just be careful of the "quick"it is color red in the nail and if you cut it, it will bleed and your guinea pig will be hurt.

If your guinea pig farts, that's fine. If the guinea pig poops, that's fine. BUT IF YOUR GUINEA PIG SHARTS you should see a vet.

You should take your guinea pig to a veterinarian immediately. This is extremely painful and if not treated properly can lead to death from septis or shock or permanent cripppling of the legs from mis-healed bones.

I would not recommend you to heal a guinea pig at home. You should bring your guinea pig to a local animal hospital. Healing a guinea pig alone can cause germs going into the guinea pig. That can be harmful for your pet.

It's best to ask a veterinarian about the use of iodine on a guinea pig. However, cornstarch or styptic powder can be applied to a guinea pig's injured nail.

The guinea pig should see a veterinarian. The veterinarian can discover the cause of the guinea pig's hair loss, and he or she can see what should be done for the guinea pig.
