    Grooming Mineral Oil vs Coconut Oil vs Olive Oil

    spy9doc Nikkipig yes! it's amazing! I just used some of my coconut oil (100% of course) to clean her ears and it did wonders; she had SO much wax. Her black ear may not be fully cleaned though because I can't really see all of the black wax on the black ear, but i could definitely see huge...

    Grooming Mineral Oil vs Coconut Oil vs Olive Oil

    pinky Soecara thank you so much for the advice! I had a feeling coconut oil was the safest. and yes i use the 100% virgin pure unrefined organic coconut oil and it works great for many other uses so I would definitely feel comfortable using that. Thanks again! :)

    Grooming Mineral Oil vs Coconut Oil vs Olive Oil

    Grooming Normal Ear Wax??

    Hi everyone! Forgive me if I do something wrong…I just joined the forum a few minutes ago. I am a little concerned about one of my guinea pig's ear wax. She is a Peruvian and I have read that long haired piggies have more wax buildup. But, her wax is black. She has one white ear and one...
