My guinea pig has a large swelling under his chin, it appeared yesterday and is quite big but seems to be hanging loosely under the skin, he is eating and drinking as normal and seems as energetic as normal.
Any piggie owners seen or heard of anything like this?

if you put this in general chat section you will probably get more response :) meanwhile yes piggies are prone to lumps - usually they are harmless and don't bother the pig at all, but it might be wise to have a vet aspirate whatever is inside the lump just to see if it's pus or fat or something more serious.
