    Star Static...?

    Okay, so Chu Chu is MEGA staticy (is that a word? hehe) And everytime she goes near the coroplast her hair stands on end. If I brush her, it's worse. Is there 'Guinea Conditioner?' I could get? I tried looking at the terrible pet stores for regular shampoo... but they had every single animal except guinea pigs... (even rat). Any suggestions? Obviously it's not a huge deal but I look at if at Chu Chu having a bad hair day.

    Look!



    Her eyes get scary with camera eye.

    Chloë-Jasmine,
    You know, this is really mean of me to say this ....
    BUT....

    that is just too funny!!! at least to me....

    Anyways, don't know any piggy conditioners, but there's a product by Kiehls, called silk-groom. The product line is totally natural, and DON"T BUY A BOTTLE, they will be more than happy to gove you a sample, which is a GENEROUS packet that trust me, that will last you a whole winter!

    I only use about a less than a penny size squirt each time, and I have long-hair, so that package will do you good for the winter!

    Good luck, and ....
    thanks for sharing that hilarious picture!

    Re: Static...?

    Thank you! Is this like an online store I can get this stuff or is this in a certain store? I'm gonna do a google search anyways. And that's not mean... my boyfriend took this pigture and he's like 'This is cute, maybe you should put it on you 'cavy site'.' so I figured I'd make a point to posting it.

    okay so I've discovered Kiehl's is a department store that I've never heard of! Do you think they have this stuff at Sears (excuse my Canandian!)

    Chloe,
    Kiels is just a product line, and I did a search on its site and put in Ontario, and it showed the following mall/address...

    Holt Renfrew-Sherway
    25 The West Mall
    Etobicoke, Ontario, M9C 1B8
    416-621-9900

    I've also included a picture of the product, bu the samples they give out are actaully in small plastic pouches, its a wonderful product, I've used it a while now!

    Just Earth the plastic, so the built-up static can escape.

    Re: Static...?

    A few years ago we had a cat develop that problem several times over the winter. She kept shocking everyone so I just petted her with a dryer sheet. It worked well.

    As for conditioner. Buddy Rinse works great if you can find it. My vet sells it as do a couple of the farm stores. It's sold for humans from some online vegan stores as well as animal health sites and originates from this company http://cloudstar.com/. Don't know if you can find it in Canada though.

    That's kinda funny.

    When I put my pigs under MY fleece blanket, they were running around and popcorning, and then I took them out and they're hair was sticking straight up!!! Dusty was annoyed, but I think Cocoa likes it!

    I agree with the dryer sheet suggestion. If my own hair is full of static I rub it down with one.
