Isolation

 

If you already have cavies at home and the new cavy you have selected is an addition to the group, remember to keep the new cavy isolated from the others for at least one week to make sure it is not incubationg a contagious disease.

 

This will prevent accidental spread of disease to your other pets in case your new cavy develops an unexpected, contagious health problem

 


CAUTION!

 

Do not house cavies with or near animals, such as rabbits, cats, or dogs. They may have subclinical (showing no symptoms) infections of Bordetella Bacteria, which can cause severe disease and illness in cavies!
