Guinea pigs are clean animals and they like to be kept this way. Guinea pigs that have short hair do not need to have a bath. However long haired guinea pigs do require more maintenance and a bath will be part of this regime. As a general rule about every 6 weeks or so depending on how well you keep them and their living conditions as a guide. If the weather is hot you may choose to give your guinea pig a bath to help keep cool. What you will need:
- Bowl for them to have their bath
- shampoo or skin/coat treatment ( depending on your reason for a bath)
- Soft Towel.
- Comb and sissors on hand
