    Shampoo for my guinea pig

    Hello everyone!
    I have a six month old guinea pig, Snoopy. I have been looking for ideal shampoos for him in INDIA. However, I cannot find anything. I wanted to ask if I could use Captain Zack Shampoos (popularly for dogs) or Wahl Oatmeal Shampoo?
    If not, I would appreciate some suggestions for Shampoos in India or ideal ingredients to look for in a shampoo for guinea pigs. Thanks!

    The Wahl Oatmeal Shampoo for cats should be OK.

    But guinea pigs are clean animals, and unless something is going on, can go for years without baths. Even those that occasionally get poop on their butts can get by with just a butt bath.

    I don't use any chemicals on myself. I use goatmilkstuff.com goat milk soap which is lush. I have their pet soap for any baths. Never have to look at an expiration date on pure soap!

    Okay, thank you! I will try it! Yes, I am aware about that. Actually, he's gotten a bit dirty from playing in the garden and needs a bath!

    Oh wow! That is interesting. However, I don't think they deliver to India! But, thanks for replying!

    I did for awhile but because it's only good for a year after purchase I wound up dumping most. Pet soap doesn't expire. Perfect for gps since they don't need many baths.
