How many times should you brush a guinea pig a week?

If your guinea pig has long hair, maybe two to three times a week.

However, it's key to remember that they clean themselves with their paws. If you see that your guinea pig is often cleaning him/herself, keep the cage cleaner more often.

You don't technically have to clean the hamster itself, only the cage where it presides. The hamster, you'll notice, cleans itself kind of like a cat would. You should clean the cage when it starts getting smelly or you notice that there is a lot food and droppings on the bottom. :)
