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
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
