Got a call from the animal hospital in Ava, MO asking me if I'd be willing to bring some of my guinea pigs in for their one day youth veterinary camps in August and September. It's to introduce high school students to the world of veterinary medicine. I'm happy to do that (anything to help young people) and I've chosen Kahlua and Jack to bring in August. Mr Bubbles and Dean are pretty laid back, but they're getting old and aren't likely to tolerate that much handling by people they don't know. Buttercup would be pretty good with it, but her daughter and cage mate, Muffin is just too high strung, so they're out. Gillian and Skipper don't tolerate too much handling, even from us and tend to get nippy when they are done being handled and ready to be left alone. Wilber and Grady would do well too, so they're going in September.
In exchange for bringing them in, all four will receive a free check up and nail trims. I'd say that's a fair trade. I will be there with them the entire time to make sure they are handled safely and correctly. They asked me because I'm the only one around here who has guinea pigs and willing to bring them in. I'm excited to do this and thought I'd share it with you guys.
