How Often Do You Ba th a Guinea Pig?

This is a question I am frequently asked at the pet store. The fact is you don't.

Most guinea pigs don't like the water. A Bath can actually result in stress that can be unhealthy for your pet and they should not be bathed unless they absolutely need it.

Instead try one of the following:

Powder baths can be sprinkle on and brush out with a bristle brush.

Spot clean fur with a washcloth and warm soapy water.
