Is baby shampoo safe for bathing guinea pigs? If not, then which shampoo do you recommend?

Baby shampoo would be fine as long as you dont go near the eyes with it obviously. I also agree with Doglover93, maybe only give your guinea pig a bath when he/she is smelly. hope this helps :)

This is definitely a question for Kavykeeper. Look up her profile and I bet she can tell you. I would not think baby shampoo would hurt your g-pig but, I don't have one and don't want to misinform you either.

Baby shampoo should be fine, I use it for my rabbit. It is gentle enough for their fur but I wouldn't recommend giving your guinea pig a bath too often.
