Hello! We had 7 healthy (we thought) guineas yesterday, today we have 6. One died this morning in my arms as I was treating a very puffy toe which was bleeding. Two others have deep gashes on the fronts of their feet (in the middle after the incline to the ankle). I am not sure what is happening. They live in a metal gage with a very sturdy metal bottom, I am worried something is attacking at their feet. We have them in the "vault" since there are so many coons and foxes in our neighborhood. The two with the gashes on the tops of their feet look much worse than did our poor puffy toe fellow. We have raised these since hatchlings, they are now about 6 months old. Could the bleeding toe have caused that much blood loss? I have treated the worse of the remaining two injured foot guineas with a round of penecillin injections (10 days, ending a few weeks ago), the gash is better, but not completely healed. They are just so difficult to keep clean and then they get so upset when seperated from their friends. Any suggestions?
