Piggies normally groom themselves, you don’t need to bath your guinea pig unless a vet has told you to.

I very very rarely bathe my piggies. Is there a reason you think they need a bath?

What bedding do you use? That might be the cause, maybe the bedding isn’t absorbent enough and she sits in her wee? I’m not sure. My piggy never really is stained after peeing.

I very rarely bathe my piggies and they’re long haired (When I have it’s just been a bum bath!) but for when I do on the odd occasion I use the gorgeous guineas shampoo - you can order it online! :nod:
