If you want more information of a rather technical sort about guinea pig health, you can try _Diseases of Domestic Guinea Pigs_ by V.C.G. Richardson. Also, check out Carlo "G.P." Ferrari's guinea pig site. In addition to containing some documents with information about guinea pigs, it has an archive of all the guinea pig related posts on rec.pets. If you have access to the WWW, you can point your URL to > gopher://184.108.40.206:70/11/varie/bpets/Cavie or, if your site has a gopher client, just type > gopher 220.127.116.11 at the prompt, and then follow the links to pets. There's also another WWW site with guinea pig information, as well as all sorts of other veterinary documents, at > http://netvet.wustl.edu/rodents.htm or, for the gopher server > gopher://vetinfo.wustl.edu:70/11n:/vet again, if you have gopher and not WWW, you can type > gopher vetinfo.wustl.edu Finally, the Swedish GP Club's home page resides at > http://www.stud.mdh.se/~ltd92fsk/clubs/smf.html If you are on the WWW, you can get to all of these through links from the WWW version of this guinea pig FAQ: > http://www.princeton.edu/~ecrocke/html/gpfaq.html by clicking on "Index for links to other gp related sites" at the end of the document. There's also a great gp mailing list that Carlo maintains. Once a day a digest is sent out of all the submissions that have been received that day, so it won't clutter up your mailbox. To subscribe, send mail to email@example.com with no subject, and the message body "subscribe gpigs <your name>"; e.g. "subscribe gpigs Emily". And last but not least, a woman named Lee Mahavier who runs a shelter for abandoned guinea pigs puts out a quarterly newsletter which costs $8 a year (the money goes to the shelter). The address is: Home for Unwanted and Abandoned Guinea Pigs 699 Creekview Dr. Lawrenceville, GA 30244 (USA) (404) 963-4755 I haven't had a chance to check out the newsletter personally, but it came highly recommended by several people. If there's any other information you think should be added to the FAQ, or other sites with guinea pig info I should mention, please write me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know.
