I have two male guinea pigs. Both are almost two years old. I heard that one is supposed to perform a boar cleaning once a month with them to prevent impaction. However, it seems to be that putting a q-tip inside a guinea pig’s anal sack could, in addition to cleaning it out, stretch the muscles, thus weakening them and making impactions more likely. So, should I or shouldn’t I perform boar cleanings?
