I have been giving Jess a bath every other day just now because she keeps getting covered with honey- no matter how hard I try to wipe it off, it must leak out of the wound over time.
Is it safe to bath so often, can it be done daily?
I have been using warm water but is there any shampoo I can use?

Can you just wipe the area rather than bath? I use Johnsons small animal shampoo when necessary just to wipe the area with cotton wool pads (dirty buns!) - just have them damp and then dry thoroughly.

I'd have a look at the products stocked by Galens Garden or Gorgeous Guineas as they tend to be more natural and safe for pigs and buns alike.
