    Re: Awesome video on how to clean the Anal Sac

    Would it be okay to use baby oil or a normal water based lubricant instead of mineral oil? If not I'm going to get some mineral oil, just curious :)

    She said in the video water and any thing else would hurt the pig and mineral oil is a lubricant so it's safe to use. Baby oil has fragrance in it, just purchase mineral oil.

    Re: Awesome video on how to clean the Anal Sac

    Okay I bought some mineral oil today and I cleaned him up. That was probably the nastiest thing I've ever done in my life, but I'll do it for Chewy anyway. I snapped a picture of his privates to get a second opinion on his gender since he doesn't have any testicles that I can see or feel. This quality is pretty poor, but it's the best I can do right now. I think you should be able to click this to see a bigger picture... if not let me know and I'll try to get another tomorrow. ( I think the fact that he's got more than one color down there might make it a little difficult to see, too)

    I don't think females have anal sacs? Looks like my boar but without his (rather obvious) testicles.

    Re: Awesome video on how to clean the Anal Sac

    When cleaning how far/deep should you go in? I'm finding it difficult to tell whether or not there is stuff stuck in there or whether it is the inside of him and I don't want to scrape or pull it out with the cotton tip if it isn't, is there anyway to tell?

    Guys I know how you all feel it is not fun and my boys hate it too. But boys will boys. :)

    Re: Awesome video on how to clean the Anal Sac

    Do you guys have any favorite brands of mineral oils to recommend? Got my piggie just yesterday, male, about 6 months old, trying to get as much informed as I can, so I can provide him a happy long life :)

    Mineral oil is mineral oil is mineral oil. I don't think the brand matters much. What matters more is how viscous it is. You want the lightest oil possible, not a thick one.

    Re: Awesome video on how to clean the Anal Sac

    I got a 'kroger' mineral oil. Looks pretty clear and liquidy. Cleaned my piggie yesterday, it was very difficult , he doesnt like showing his belly. I didnt get much dirt on a q-tip and it didn't smell at all. Maybe cause he is still young, only 6 months old.

    He may not need to be cleaned yet. You should check him once a week, including the sheath of his penis. If he's ok, let him be, and only clean if he needs it.

    Re: Awesome video on how to clean the Anal Sac

    Do you have any advice on how to make that less torturing for him? I tried with a carrot , it distracts him for like 2 seconds and then he turns on his feet again. He doesn't wanna sit like that one on the video, only if I hold him on his back somehow.

    Re: Awesome video on how to clean the Anal Sac

    Oh yes, I saw that one, and tried it, actually I think that was the way I did it and saw it doesnt have anything on the q-tip so I let him go. I will probably gonna do that from now on, cause he kinda get calmer when I roll him up in a small towel. Im just kinda scared that Im going to hurt him like that :/ Thanks for all advises!

    Thank you for posting this thread and video! I just adopted my first boy guinea pig and this information makes me feel better prepared to take care of him as best possible. :)

    @stephandcorey, you need to check at least once a week, and clean as often as necessary. As your boar ages, or if you house him on wood shavings or something like carefresh, you may need to check more often.

    @canadiancomforts could you use extra virgin coconut oil or something maybe a little easier to find in the cupboards
