Just wondering, what about like, oiling and bathing your guinea pig? Should you? When do you give them a bath? I didnt know you had to give them baths. Can someone tell me about this?

People have different opinions on bathing. I only bath my pigs if they either have a mite or fungal infection or if they get stinky! You would only need to "oil" a skinny pig. If you decide to bath them regularly I would only do them every 12 weeks or so, as too many baths would upset the skins natural oils.

A skinny pig is a hairless one, right? :(

Ok, only bath if stinky. Got it. lol ^^; Thanks.

That's right guineapiggable. Hairless. Don't forget though to bathe if you see excesive scratching as they can pick up creepies from the hay. :o
