Did you get her from a rescue, or a pet shop or breeder? If she was left with her littermates too long there is a chance she could be pregnant. Do you know how old she was when her brothers were taken away from the litter? Also, I don't know much about this but I had a look on guinea lynx and found this, do you think it could be bloat? http://www.guinealynx.info/emergency.html#bloat

yes, I got her at 7 weeks old but I was on the understanding that she had been seperated from littermates.

I don't think it is bloat as she is moving okay, eating and the lumps feel seperate if you know what I mean confused

Are you absolutely certain her friend is a girl? I've heard of so many mistakes; and experienced a few, too. Also, do you know what age she was seperated? Most people removed baby boars at three weeks, to prevent mistakes, as it's not unheard of. It really does sound like babies inside her.

I'd say, get her to the vet ASAP. They can determine is she's pregnant, or what is wrong. She needs help, whether she's pregnant or not, as she's too young to really have babies.

Where did you get her from? I know pet shops who deliberatly sell pregnant animals, as they know the babies will, nine times out of ten, be brought back to them. Their sneaky way of 'breeding' without raising the litter. >:(

She is fine at the moment thanks, can't feel any movement yet, she looks in great health and is running around her cage eating well etc.

Still looks round and tummy still feels bumpy!

keep you all updated!
