And of course, these kind of things always have to happen on Sunday. Fortunately, we were able to get a referral to Ridglea West Animal Hospital, which specializes in exotic pets. I would have never considered a guinea pig to be "exotic," but there you go.
The vet, who's home and cell number were on the after hours answering machine, said based on the symptoms he thought Duchess had an ear infection. This messed up her balance, and caused her to basically run in circles instead of a straight line.
We fed her some parsley, which I guess has quite a bit of vitamin C, and then the next day Duchie and I made a trip to the vet.
Long story short, she's on antibiotics, doing great, walking almost straight, and back to running away from us when we try to pick her up.
All for less than $150. Waah!

Things you need to know
Play some, learn some, love some.
Stay beside a friend around the clock.
Hold some one you love in your arms at least once a day.
Help each other out when the going gets tough.
Speak up, and some one will hear you.
Remember that you are never alone.
Listen close, and you will hear what others are telling you.
