Hi- have you got a Peruvian? (Mop on legs type) I accidentally bought one (didn't know she was a Peruvian when I bought her) . Boy she was hard work
Best thing I found was a baby comb- rounded ends to the prongs, close together and fine. Brushing with smooth the fur but you really need a comb to get the tangles out. (If they do get tangles, I found it better to carefully snip them out rather than aggrevate the pig)
I'm guessing they are pet rather than ShowPigs. (You can't cut the fur off a showpig you need to put it in 'rollers' of tissue)
Silk scarf to stroke the fur makes it shiney and removes static.
Start combing early so it's part of their cuddle routine. Thy'll get used to it quickly.
Yep, pets rather than show pigs. I hope don't think they've got any Peruvian in them, they have 'rosettes' but just longer hair than I've ever seen on a rough coated pig. I did make the girl in the shop check they were both girls as well (local garden centre with good reputation for small pets, rather than a certain chain store) - we learnt that one the hard way with mice when I was small.
Was going to go shopping this weekend, but fortunately I've got a baby comb at home that doesn't get used. The lurcher had very fine hair, so I'm used to dealing with tangled fur. I'm not averse to cutting tangles out if I need to.
And as for the leggy ones, I'd forgotten that picture was up... In all honesty, I've been delaying on guinea pigs for a couple of years because of the hounds. Greyhounds and small furry things don't tend to mix too well and I could do without that trauma! Fortunately we've moved and have an area that the dogs can't get to now. We sadly lost the lurcher last year, but it means that we no longer have a dog with terrier tendancies that will actively try to get to them rather than just reacting to them if they see them. Still got the three greys and a lab though.
Haven't had guinea pigs for years - always had them when we were growing up. Am also very pleased with how well DD is looking after them.
Will sort out some photos later - I suspect that if I check the camera DD will have taken about a million photos of them.
