    Do you ever have to do it sows or just boars?

    Just boars.
    That pig is so good about the whole thing! Good thing you don't have to do girls because I doubt Amy and Quinn would cooperate.

    I think that's CanadianComfort's video.

    *Blushes* Yes that would be Mojo and Me.

    I've only ever had to do this with males and from what I know, sows don't need it done.

    Would the vet do it for me? I could do it but I think my guinea pigs would give me a hard time.

    Felix looks nothing like that when I clean him! He squirms and throws a fit.

    I would ask your vet, mine doesn't and as far as I know most vets don't. Groomers might for a fee, but I would show them the video first. I do a few friends (they always give me money but I always say its free ;) ). Thankfully you don't need to do it often unless they are really icky.

    I'm making this a sticky thread so it'll be at the top of the Medical and Veterinary Forum, and we can just point people at it. Thanks, Erin!

    Re: Awesome video on how to clean the Anal Sac

    I'm glad it was helpful :) .
    Before making it there was only one other video on photobucket, which unless you know the link or someone who does its hard to find. So I made this one. You have no idea the spam and hate mail I got with this. Many of which I removed and reported. Things like I am sexually abusing him, I am a sick *beep* and so on. People who have no idea what I am doing or why. Trolls, got to love them.

    Re: Awesome video on how to clean the Anal Sac

    I found that video and one by @Kim37040 of her guinea pig Charlie to be super helpful to me when I learned how to clean my boys. I had not known that was something that had to be done before I found this website. It is not a pleasant task but once you've done it once or twice it is just another thing to do and stops being so 'icky'.

    @CanadianComforts I am sorry you received so much harassment because of it! Hopefully it helps to know to you've helped out a lot of people on how to take care of their boars properly. Though I am not sure my boys would thank you for it lol

    I once told Kim that she better not let any of her friends see the video or she would never get a date! Her Charlie (now over the Rainbow Bridge) was just about the best natured little fellow that I've seen.

    I differ with some of the opinions in that my biweekly cleaning includes nail trimming, ear cleaning, genitals and anal sac, and a hair trim, if needed. I find it good hygiene practice to clean Maya as well as Chester. Chester is neutered, but he still requires more care than she does.

    The stinky little rascals are currently peacefully in their midday snooze, and have no idea that THIS is grooming day. Today they get the "full Monty" which includes the occasional bath. ^_^

    That was super informative and easy to follow! How early do you need to start cleaning your boys' parts?
