pet's eyes and ears

3. Thoroughly rinse coat

Well, you can use a sink or a bathtub. Treat it like a baby, like

fill it with nice warm water and fill it till its half of your

guinea pig. You don't want it to swim and get tired and drown. When

using shampoo, use a soft baby shampoo. Keep soap out of the eyes

of the guinea pig. And perhaps try and avoid the ears, eyes and

nose. There really is no need for a conditioner, if you find a

need. Use a baby conditioner as well. And when done, use a towl.

Rap them up nicely and softly rub all around until it is decently

dry. If you want use a hair dryer.. Use the softest power on it.

And after that you should be done

THERE ARE TWO METHODS: #1. fill a bin (I like to use my bathroom

sink) with lukewarm water. Place the guinea pig in the bin and wet

their hair. Apply guinea pig shampoo (available in pet stores) and

rinse. You may want to replace the water. Then, shampoo a second

time. Towel dry (dont sufficate it though.) #2. place the guinea

pig in a bin and pour lukewarm water over them (from a pitcher).

Shampoo as in #1. Then, place the guinea pig in a box with a hot

water bottle (covered with a towel) to dry.

I wash mine in the bathtub. I make sure the water is not too warm

or too hot and fill the tub about 4 inches high. You don't want to

get their face wet, or let them go under the running water. For

soap, I went to the vet to get some normal pet soap.

well use a sink for the water guinea pig shampoo or baby

shampoo(Johnson ) lufe warm water up to his.her belly

You will need

  • A dirty guinea pig
  • A sink or bathtub
  • Two or three towels
  • Guinea pig or baby shampoo
  • (If it's cold outside or especially cold inside) A


first of all put the guinea pig in the sink or bathtub with a

little amount of water just above their feet, then rinse the guinea

pig in water, if the guinea pig freaks out a little bit then just

get some water in your hands and pour it on the guinea pig but BE

CAREFUL ! you don't want the water to get any where near its face

or ears !!

then when you have rinsed it you will need the guinea pig

shampoo cleaning stuff, you can buy this from a pet shop, then rub

it, remember not near the face or ears please !!! then carefully

rinse off the guinea pig in the water again, PLEASE make sure its

all off as it can irritate your guinea pig! then use a brush to

stroke your guinea pig. then dry him/her with a towel only if it

freaks out then get A treat to reward your guinea pig, even if it

diddent enjoy it :) I HOPE THIS HELPED

you should give guinea pigs baths because they can get very smelly

and stink your room out

you give them baths by runnig about 1 inch ofwater in a bath tub

and hold the guinea pig in your hand above the water. use a soft

sop and use your hand and scrub their body, away from the face. dry

them off carfully
