I live in a high-altitude and very dry climate, and it's the dead of winter here. My own skin is flaky and dry. I've noticed a little dandruff in their fur, and I was starting to look at ways to help keep their skin from drying out too much. I tried looking for some dietary remedies and didn't find much beyond the Oxbow Skin and Coat Support cookies, which are in my Chewy cart right now. I went on to looking at advice about bathing.
I know they don't need regular bathing, but they've never had a bath, so I thought maybe it would benefit them. I came across this video on YouTube:
I was shocked. This guy works at a GP shelter and has a whole line of videos about GP care. He uses dollar store dandruff shampoo AND fancy-smelling store-bought shampoo - all formulated for humans. This goes directly against everything I've ever read about bathing guinea pigs. What the heck?
