She enjoys stuffing her face into her hay, could it be just irritation fro hay? Her cagemate has no symptoms so I don't think this is mites, but does this sound like mites? or an infection? Her symptoms have only been going on for 4-5 hours, so not long, but it is definitely not her usual behavior to constantly be itching one ear and wiggling it. I am the type to be proactive when things are wrong with my guinea pigs, I just want to make sure she is in 100% health at all times! Also, it is a holiday weekend so I will have to wait 36 hours or so till the vets are open.
Any tips? What I have seen online so far hasn't been too helpful, most just say mites or an ear infection but don't describe the symptoms well.

Fortunately, this is not urgent enough to worry about the vet not being available over the holiday weekend. Just keep an eye on it and if it persists, you can make an appointment for her.
