Hi Everyone,

So I was holding Domino yesterday and noticed his penis was sticking out and wouldn't go back in. I also looked more closely at it today and it appears to be very dirty. So I did some research and you can take a cotton swab and some coconut oil and rub it on his penis to clean it. We just ran out of coconut oil I may be able to get some tomorrow but could I use olive oil instead? I just want to make sure I'm doing this right because it's up there in his private parts and I don't want to make a mistake :) He is four years old if that helps, he just turned four in December.

See https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/threads/85830-Awesome-video-on-how-to-clean-the-Anal-Sac.

You should be checking his nether regions, including the penis sheath regularly. But only clean as necessary.

Thank you lissie and bpatters, I feel much more confident with the video and knowing what oils I can use!
