"I've had 3 guinea pigs so far, 1 English and 2 Abyssinian, and none like baths. As soon as you're done, they'll "wash" themselves again. They don't like water, and will shake themselves dry during the bath. I've never washed they're heads, and I don't recommend it in case soap gets in their eyes. I always us baby wash soap, so that the guinea pigs don't get hurt if it does get in their eyes, and when they clean themselves afterwards their mouth doesn't taste like soap too much. Guinea pigs groom themselves, like cats almost, so it isn't necessary to wash them too often. When and if you clip your guinea pigs claws, I recommend covering their eyes with a towel because they hate having their nails cut. Be very careful about cutting black toe claws, because my poor guinea pig's toe was almost cut entirely off. If this happens, press something absorbent to the wound (as it hopefully isn't serious) and give your guinea pig some vegetables. My guinea pig forgot the pain and started eating. :) My guinea pig likes to be put outside (in a cage) with a little wooden house to hide in and have shade. Don't put your guinea pig in too much sun, or they could get too hot. Some guinea pigs, if you buy the food with treats mixed in, will dig in their food to get the treats while making a mess. Either ignore this, sort out the treats and put them on top, or don't buy the mixed food. I hope this helps you take care of your guinea pig! :)"
