Who can legally treat your guinea pig?

You:
As the owner of a guinea pig, you can give whatever treatment you want to your animal (but not treatment that involves intrusion into the animal’s body), subject to the UK Protection of Animals Act 1911. This Act requires that if an animal is clearly in need of treatment by a Veterinary Surgeon, the owner must obtain this. Owners are therefore expected to seek Veterinary care if they are concerned about the health of animals in their care.

A Veterinary Surgeon:
Under the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966, no person is allowed to make a diagnosis or practice as a Veterinary Surgeon unless included on the Veterinary Surgeons Register.
