I use a fine tooth comb and a soft bristle cat brush on my guinea pigs.

I use a small brush made for kittens. It seems to work well :)

Okay...so let me try this again. Zootoo does not seem to be playing well with the links I put in my previous answer -- or else there's a display issue (which might be a browser problem and not a ZooToo problem). In case, the issue doesn't resolve itself, here's a bit more (non-linked) detail so you know where I'm pointing to on the Web.

The Lawrence Guinea Pig Brush can be found on the Winking Cavy online store out of England. I've not always had the best luck finding it through online stores based here in the U.S. I'm just as happy to shop through Winking Cavy; I invariably find something else to add to my collectibles shelf.

The Guinea Pig Petting Brush from Pets International is reviewed in ZooToo Pet Products, under the Small Pets: Care: Grooming subcategory.

The single best brush I've ever found and used was the Lawrence Guinea Pig Brush (you can find it at the bottom of the page at this link: tinyurl.com/m5st33). It has soft, gentle wire bristles and works beautifully on all breeds of guinea pigs.

I've tried the Guinea Pig Petting Brush from Pets International Ltd. (www.zootoo.com/smallpets_grooming/guineapigpettingbrush), but was not nearly as happy with it.

no definitley use brushes combs ect. made for grooming ginea pigs I am sure someone at a petco or petsmart could show you where the grooming supplies are and if not you could always get them on line.
