My boar has a build up of grease around his grease gland, I have tried to wash it off using coconut oil and guinea pig shampoo but he is a bit tricky to bathe, he hates it. Is there any way of making bathing more enjoyable or another way to clean his grease glands?

Grease glands are a pain to clean up, unfortunately. There is unfortunately no nice and easy way. :(
