Brush it off!

We brush Chanel and Grace with a soft brush or a metal comb every two days, to help remove some of the loose hair and to reduce shedding. Daily brushing is very important for long haired guinea pigs, like Patrice.

Gracey’s grooming routine

Guinea pigs seldom need baths (and some never need to be bathed as they are great at cleaning themselves). If they do need a bath, we use Johnson’s baby shampoo which is gentle on small animals’ sensitive skin. Use a shallow bowl of warm water, rinse and dry thoroughly with a hair dryer to avoid chills. Brush well. Don’t wet their upper head as water can get in their ears.
