     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://131.175.57.1:70/11/varie/bpets/Cavie
     or, if your site has a gopher client, just type 
     >  gopher 131.175.57.1
     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 listproc@ing.unico.it 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 (ecrocke@princeton.edu) and let me know.
