Dr Pigman Freud is a
guinea pig psychotherapist and oinkologist formerly of
the University of Vienna. He's been treating my little
herd for years. A number of people have asked if they
could refer their questions about guinea pig behavior to
Dr Freud and I'm pleased to announce that he has
consented to advise them through me. Those of you that
wish to submit questions should email them to me and
eventually he will answer them in a column "Ask Dr
Pigman Freud". Remember that he is a psychotherapist,
not a veterinarian, so limit your inquiries to aspects
of guinea pig behavior rather than physical ailments.--
