    Just plan on spending as much time as you possibly can with it when you are home! Why can't you have two? Could you get a rabbit instead? Rabbits and guinea pigs often make good companions!

    All you do it either get a damp baby wipe with aloe or get a luke warm damp cloth and wipe them down

    You can bath your skinny pig in the sink. Make sure the water is warm test it with your wrist. Try not to bath it for long as it may get chilled. Use normal small animal shampoo for guinea pigs and rabbits etc. Once done dry softly with a soft towel as fast as you can without hurting it. Once you have done that you will need to put just a bit of normal hand moisturiser on it to make sure the shampoo doesn't dry out its skin. Hope this helps oh btw try not to wet it's head or get water in its ears

    100 percent Coconut oil is the best for skinny pigs! Can be bought at a local grocery store. This not only moistens their skin but removes any dead dry skin as well! I oil my piggies once a week. Sometimes twice if they look a little dry!

    You can rub them in coconut oil.

I bought one skinny pig and loved him soooo much I had to have more. I now have several and play with them all. They have similarities but each have their own personality. Love them all! Great for people with allergies and they have no hair to shed on your clothes and furniture~

    Guinea pigs don't leave much fur on your furniture!

You cannot put them in a small fish tank as they need to run around!

Hiya I have a week old baby skinny pig, her skin is really dry and bumpy. It doesn't seem like normal dry skin, as she is covered in tiny raised bumps! Any help or advice?!

    Skinny pigs still have hair follicles, and usually become rather 'fuzzy' as they mature. I'm guessing this is what they are. As long as she is eating and acting normal, I wouldn't worry to much.

I don't have a guinea pig but I love them. I have a baby boy hamster named Rory, before we got Rory my sister had a girl hamster named Creamy. I love animals and want to be a vet when I am older. I want to be a vet and hamster/ guinea pig breeder.

Did you know, Guinea pigs do MUCH better with at least 1 friend Guinea Pig? I got my first the summer of 2009, I was her third owner, she was also very poorly treated, then, we got her a friend, American Guinea Pig, Loki. She was sooooo much happier, even for a crancy of piggy. When she passed, we had to get another one because Loki always had a friend, so we got a mixed breed, Abyssine and Teddy bear. I don't know if she is a teddy bear, she has long hair, but albino, so it's hard to tell.

I have 7 guinea pigs the best is a teddy or American to me and if they do breed they need lots of care and if you have an abyssinan they can die quickly because my friend had one.
