Marvin here was surrendered to a vet hospital over the weekend after being viscously attacked by another guinea pig!
At 5 months old and being an entire male, his hormones are quite strong and so it is likely that the other guinea pig was also an entire male who saw Marvin as a threat.
He has many open wounds over his rear end. The poor lad!
Marvin is on strong pain medications, antibiotics, and is having his wounds bathed twice daily before applying a topical antibacterial cream.
He has a long recovery ahead of him but he is being very brave and receiving lots of love!
As a not-for-profit organisation we rely solely on donations to help animals in need.
