2. work Guinea pig shampoo into coat, avoid getting shampoo in pet's eyes and ears

3. Thoroughly rinse coat

4. shampoo again

5. Thoroughly rinse coat until water runs clear with no suds

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 hairdryer

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
