    my boy is stinky (he literally smells like poo) and needs a bath. How should I go about this?

    As in depth as possible, what's the best way to bathe a skittish guinea pig? Malcolm's a boar and he hasn't had a bath since he's been staying with me (his previous owner did a bath once a month). He smells like poo and I wanna hold/cuddle him without having to pull my face away all the time...

    Housing Advice

    Hi just looking for some advice. I've always had piggies but they've been in my family home and they were either kept outside or inside in store bought runs using hay and sawdust as bedding.

    Smelly Cage!

    Hi everyone, I've been using fleece for my babies cage and I recently bought some new fleece. I recently got another piggy and my cage is starting to smell a little more? I'm not sure why. I was thinking of putting puppy pads underneath to soak up any pee? Or does anyone have any better...

    Bb-8 Is Going To Need A Bath!

    I noticed BB's nice bright white patch was not so white at weighing time this weekend. I think she must have napped on pissy newspaper! I gave her a wipe down with a warm damp cloth, much to her disgust, and the mark got removed, but when she was dry she still smelt bad so she's probably going...
