Two Guinea Pig Boy Cleaning Smelly Business at LAGPR
everyone's a skier from Los Angeles
guinea-pig rescue and today I am this morning actually Saturday it's really even health checks I'm doing a board
cleaningon George Anna for
cleaningthis dude who came in this is one of our newly surrendered any bigs and he has a pretty bad infection and I soaked it yesterday so let's see if we can get it all out alright so when you're doing a board
cleaningthe way you're holding them super important so I I go like this like this with my hand but then I grab this paw in between my fingers okay that gives me a lot of control so to start with that then you gotta turn them over so this is challenging because I am juggling two
guineapigs here put them like this and then I use both hands okay and you know what else you really have to put on blocks because this is stinky
businessand really one of yes you want to put on the gloves okay another one oh you're smelling stuff to night you're getting all excited that's not helping buddy it's not okay now he I already know to see how this he has his big plug here and oh and he just pooped so this is actually really interesting so you can see that this is not the anus this is not where the poopies come from okay this icky plug thatis magma that collects in this pocket right before the anus so they say ain't no impaction and that is a complete misnomer because it has nothing to do with the anus that's very true this is a golden okay okay George all right...
Georgie just gonna give it a little swipe now with my kids all right come on come on I think it's pretty pretty clean usually when it comes out like this and a big plug then it's pretty clean you gonna let me do that real quick all right little swipe and then again the way you're holding them is important because you want to get some resistance when you do this right you really want to dig in and get what's what's out there in the pocket so this is pretty clean looks really good so you have to see how I'm holding him this is the way to do it it feels more like this I'm not able to really you know help me do this thing with the q-tip that I do so it's really important you put them properly being stubborn on their back there sweetie well they don't like I don't blame them yeah okay this is how I do it I just kind of press here pull it out like that do you have any wiener nope is actually pretty clean what I also do is I press a little bit so I want to see if there's any shavings stuck shavings can get stuck right in the ureter yes you see these little prongs there there are supposed to be they're part of the normal Anatomy I'll be
guineapig all right so he's good well let's check out this guy first what would you mind okay you let's check you out buddy so he also has a pretty big plug here but he's was like if it hipster the oxygen it kind of you know gets hard and dark because this is the same white stuff...
that all the boys F's no different now when it looks like this I think that is why people think it's poop and it's an anal infection where it really is not okay so let's give myself okay you are fighting me and I get it I get it Lee I totally get okay and you know it's interesting to note this is a fairly new pig still getting used to his new diet and that's why his puppies are still little bit wider lighter colored yeah but much better than when he hit there was a super light brown today I came in that's right like a time well actually okay all right okay I know I know so here looks pretty clean little squeeze okay oh good and then so this is the best way to do it when we're holding them like this against me because I'm gonna use these fingers as well as this head so that way I can use both hands and I can really try and talk about this piece here okay and you know they're gonna struggle and you just very patient never get upset or lose your patience just know if it doesn't work just pick them up again and put them in the position again and see if you can do it okay and sometimes you're gonna work while they're struggling just to you know get it done so this is almost like gummy this is really hard and stinky so whenever you do this you gotta breathe through your mouth my baby we're almost there he's come down quite a picking they're like yeah so I had one earlier that I shoot a film as well also and I was able...
just to take it out like a whole kind of strip like almost like a second piece of skin how I can't move that were you there did you see that one no you know okay so this is where it gets really delicate because I got the big piece out and this isn't really stuck to the skin the inside skin which is very super sensitive okay so this may need a little more soaking because I'm certainly not gonna force this off if it is going to hurt him oh look at this somewhere he's cooperating which is good boy yeah this is pretty delicate pretty good you just have a little bit left here you know what I might just leave that for later so I'm not gonna just do too much you just leave it for another session I'm gonna put a little mark all the way on finish it up but yeah I hope this was helpful you want to check your boys especially when they get a little older so ten months and 911 lines is usually when they can start developing some of this they call it an anal sac but Ernesto is filming we're calling it the pucker which i think is the perfect way you know perfect to describe it because it actually is a pocket and has nothing to do with anus so they're guys and let me know if you worked I leave your comments and check your voice everyone needs to check the boys a lot of people actually don't know that they need to check them yep leave a comment guys and like and subscribe
