How To Groom Guinea Pigs With Short Hair

Short-haired guinea pigs groom themselves, usually with some assistance from their GP friends. All owners need to do is clean the grease gland, (see Guinea Pig Grooming) provide a regular bath, and give them a brief brush every now and then - always in the direction in which the hair grows.
