Hi I am Terri Janson.

I'm not very good navagating on this site but trying. I have 3 piggys. Ziggy (Peruvian)...Binky (American)...Opie (Abyasinian). All boars. I am 58 years old. I also have dogs
as well. I look forward to chatting with others that have the same addiction :o

I have a first question. What do others use for a brush on the Peruvian piggys? I am currently using a worn out toothbrush.

Hi Terri,

Welcome aboard! Don't worry about having a hard time navigating the site. You just signed up so as with anything, it just takes time to get used to where things are. In the mean time, feel free to ask. We were all in the same boat at one time.

As for your Peruvian, you might want to get something other than a toothbrush. The kind of bristles a toothbrush has, won't be effective for getting down to the skin which is what is important to prevent tangles and matts. Any kind of pet comb/brush with single row teeth is going to be a better option.

Welcome Terri. We'd love to see pictures of your piggys.
I only have short-hairs but I use a comb and brush set for a baby (human baby, that is). I got it at the dollar store.
