    If it's safe for bunnies , I'd presume it'd be safe for guinea pigs.

    Bathing: Re: How do I clean guinea pigs poopy feet?

    Hi,

    I have this problem a lot too with my guinea pig. I've found that if their poop is healthy and normal it should be firm and hard that it can't easily squish under their feet. I say this...

    Loss: Re: Another piggy died today... WHY?

    Vision: Re: does my guinea pig looks blind?
