Bathing a Guinea Pig

Guinea pigs are very clean but they need to be looked after in order to avoid the spread of infection. One way of doing this is to bath them. Nevertheless, it is important to take into account that doing so too frequently is not good either, because it can wear away the natural protection of the hair.

When we are bathing our guinea pig, we must previously follow some steps. So, keep reading and we explain which ones!

What to do?

  • Calm them before the bath, so they will feel relaxed and have no fear of what we have prepared: a delicious bath!

Temperature

  • Make sure the water is neither too hot nor too cold. The water must be the same than their body temperature: around 37-39 Celsius.

A pleasant bath

  • Be gentle: use a sweet voice; avoid that they get water in the eyes and ears in order to prevent our pet from stressing.

The idea is to connect the bath to something good and pleasant so, we will have no problems every time we have to bath her.

 During and after the bath

  • We will use the special shampoo for rodents (recommended product: Shampoo Biotin CUNIPIC rodent). Rinse very well afterwards, so there is no product residue left on his scalp. If you have a long-haired guinea pig, you must insist a litter longer both washing the hair and rinsing it afterwards.
  • Dry the hair with a towel, taking special care in winter and in cold days, to minimize their risk of catching a cold. If you use a hair-dresser, you must use low temperature and low air power.
