Poor Josie

Josie the guinea pig just got home from her Monday surgery. We suspected uterine cancer based on her symptoms last week. When my vet spayed her, she found cysts on both ovaries, a growth on one of the ducts from the ovaries, unidentified white spots all over the uterus, and cervical cancer. Poor piggie is five or six years old but came through surgery well. She’s finally eating and pooping a little better and I think the incision looks great. The narcotic that helped her with pain is what makes her not eat, so now she’s only on aspirin! She seemed really happy to be home and likes being near her piggy friend Cappy, though she’s in a recovery cage for the time being.
