Yes you can bathe them but you have to make sure they get dry otherwise they get upper respiratory infections

Yes! But like the others said, make sure it stays warm and gets dry very quickly. I would do it in a small, warm bathroom in the sink. Towel dry and then you can blow dry with the dryer set on low. Just be sure to hold it far enough away that it doesn't burn the skin. I would keep wrapped in old towels and warm and out of drafts until completely dry.

I wouldn't bathe my piggies to often they really don't need it they bathe themselves you have to watch because they can catch a cold very easy and a cold in a guinea pig could be deadly i would only bathe them if they get smelly which is not likely if their cage is kept clean
