How long a try did you give the BioSponge? Do you still have some?

Laying in pee can definitely have an affect on health. What kind of bedding are you using these days?

Have towels, then fleeced blankets, then vet/dry bed. This is to keep them dry and warm being on the floor. As to Bio-Sponge have heaps left. Had Jill on it for 3 weeks twice a day and it just had no affect except to make her poops more mushy. When Jinx started on Bactrim Thursday tried her on Bio-Sponge and it didn't agree with her either. Thanks Lynx. Bio-Sponge is in the fridge.

You might have to give her a rinse in the morning and try something like coconut oil on her bum to protect from moisture. I can't think of anything else since traditional preventions like cranberry don't to anything.

Thanks ItsaZoo, have bought coconut oil for Jill's feet so can use it on Jinx's private part as well. Thanks for the tip!

I was thinking they use a lotion barrier for babies to prevent diaper rash so maybe it will help with guinea pigs.
