Hello All..
I have a question...How do ya trim the fur around your piggies behind? Mainly for long hair piggies
I have a long fur female piggy...right now she has a UTI and she is gettin pee colored fur. I tryed washing her off everyday, but she has long fur on her bottom. She is pure white, so the color sticks out really bad.

I just wanted to know what do ya use to trim and how do ya keep your piggy still while ya trim.
I am sooooo scared to do this, cause i'm afraid she will move as i clip..:( !! i try to keep her clean as poss. but with the UTI it's hard to keep her super clean !!

Any suggestions will b awesome !!

Plenty of food and patience. I just place a pile of veg in front of the pig and then trim away. I just trim little bits at a time to make sure I won't hurt the piggie. I used to use normal hair scissors, but then I bought the Scaredy Cut and Tiny Trim scissors for my dogs, and now I use the Tiny Trim when I need to cut piggy hair. It has a blunt tip so you won't end up stabbing your pet!

Good luck!
 
It's a two person job at my household. I also use my two fingers as a guard so if I slip I cut myself instead of the pig.
 
Thank Ya for the tips...!! She still is a very skittish girl...we have only had her for about 3 wks. If i even move, she will haul butt..!! So i might have my kids help...she is very calm when i'm holding her, but it's just getting to the hair that i need to..!! Or would ya just recommend bathing her..!
