Recent studies of the comparative biology of the guinea pig have revealed a number of remarkable similarities between Mycobacterium tuberculosis and humans. Guinea pigs have been employed in the testing of both biological reagents and drugs for use in human beings with tuberculosis. Guinea pigs respond quite well to many of the antibiotics currently used to treat tuberculosis patients. mite of the guinea pig causes intense pruritus and crusting excoriations over the body. Hematologic signs may be seen, and severe pruritus may result in seizures. Affected animals may lose boy condition and die. 41 Hair Pediculosis Diffuse pelagic peiculosis Gliricola porcelli and G. ovalis are.
Your pet guinea pig will live 5–7 years, on average. If you start out with a healthy guinea pig and pay attention to simple but important care guidelines, piggies usually remain free of disease. But if diet, environmental changes, poor care, stress or neglect occurs, sick guinea pigs are not easy to cure. Here are some of the most common. Biomedical uses of guinea pigs have included studies of gnotobiology, nutrition, toxicology, complement biology, pulmonary physiology, opportunistic AIDS infections, and auditory research. Guinea pigs are susceptible to a wide range of pathogens. Despite tremendous improvements in laboratory animal husbandry, a significant number of guinea pigs used in research continue to harbor natural.

The admin are very knowledgeable and will be able to provide you with trustworthy insights and advice, as will many of the members. Tumors are the result of an abnormal multiplication of body cells, resulting in a growth, or lump of tissue, which may be benign (harmless) or malignant (spreading and dangerous). Most types of cancer are not common in guinea pigs until they are four to five years old. After that age, between one-sixth and one-third of guinea pigs are known to develop a tumor.

Parelaphostrongylus tenuis (also known as meningeal worm or brainworm) is a neurotropic nematode parasite common to white-tailed deer, Odocoileus virginianus, which causes damage to the central nervous system.
Moose (Alces alces), elk (Cervus canadensis), caribou (Rangifer tarandus), mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus), and others are also susceptible to the parasite, but are aberrant hosts and Family: Protostrongylidae. Morphologic features of the nematode were consistent with a metastrongyle, and the parasite was identified as Parelaphostrongylus tenuis by polymerase chain reaction testing.
The extensive use of guinea pig in a variety of experimental procedures ranging from inhalation studies to induced endocrine deficiencies has given rise to modifications of common biomethodology as well as the introduction of specialized techniques. This chapter presents these.

The guinea pig or domestic guinea pig (Cavia porcellus), also known as cavy or domestic cavy (/ ˈ k eɪ v i /), is a species of rodent belonging to the family Caviidae and the genus e their common name, guinea pigs are not native to Guinea, nor are they closely biologically related to pigs, and the origin of the name is still originated in the Andes of South America.
The guinea pig has probably been used more extensively as an experimental host for T. spiralis than for any other parasite. Trichina worm grows well in guinea pigs, and a considerable volume of research on host response to infection with T.
spiralis has been done in the guinea pig (Cypess et al., ; Ivey, ; Kim, ; Kim et al., ; Sharp and Olson, ).

In experimental infections, neurologic signs were seen in guinea pigs without evidence of CNS penetration by larvae. To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first report of naturally occurring neurologic disease associated with P. tenuis infection in guinea pigs. Clinical signs and histologic findings were similar to those reported in other aberrant hosts.

Guinea Pig as a Pet. hether you are a new owner, or experienced one, there is always room to learn more about these delicate creatures – also known as the cavy.

It resembles other cavies in having a robust body with short limbs, large head and eyes, and short ears.
The feet have hairless soles and short sharp claws. There are four toes on the forefeet and three on the hind feet. Guinea pigs are generally hardy, healthy animals but are susceptible to certain diseases.
They cannot make their own vitamin C and require supplementation or they may develop scurvy. Guinea pigs get various tumors, particularly skin and mammary tumors. Guinea pigs also get abscesses (accumulations of pus and bacteria) in lymph nodes, skin, muscles, teeth, bones, and internal organs.
