Thread: not another guinea pig!

    not another guinea pig!

    A while back I posted two of my sister's guinea pigs and complained so much about their stinky pees. And now she brought another one! How long should I sustain such smell!!!

    If their cage is cleaned more often, you shouldn't have a problem with the smell!

    Exactly what Karen said.
    I've had guinea pigs in the past, and they never stunk.. and when they did, it wasn't overpowering.
    What kind of bedding is your sister using?

    Well, we try to clean it as often as we could.
    It's actually their pee that really stinks.
    But I guess it's just natural for their pee to get stinky right?

    When I worked in a pet store we would have up to six piggies in a cage and they never stunk. When we cleaned their cages we would spray them down first with white vinegar and then with a disinfectant.

    I was told (I can't verify this for sure) that the vinegar helped break up the urine and kept them from getting stinky.

    Thank you Wolf_Q!

    What the white vinegar does is actually remove the residue - crystals that can form from the pee. Vinegar is a mild acid.

    I use to wash with Dawn then dump a little vinegar, let it sit for about 2 minute then rinse with clean water and dry. I also made sure it was dry before adding bedding.
