Im going to have to clean out my boys sometime soon and i've never done anything like this before so that helped tons! Im thinking its going to be a nightmare getting this done with my boys, there both not the tamest piggies yet as I havent had them very long. Also my parents are easily eww'ed out so im thinking im going to have to find a time when my parents are out. Hehe my cheeky boys arent the most co-operative at the best of times either.
I havent tryed to extract these boys penis's before but with my two previous piggies it was really easy. That was probably just them though considering the problems some people on here are having.
I'll probably get this done sometime next week when my exams are over.
Also how long should I leave it between cleanings if you think this should be a routine?
and is the liquid parrafin something that must be on the Q-tip or is water okay?

Is there a way you could add the videos or a link to them to the impaction cleaning page or this thread? This would be easier than searching for them.
This is where I'm talking about.
And Brimstone would you give Lynx permission to add them?

I try to clean my boars' sacs about monthly. I should probably do it more frequently, especially the older boys.
Water could work, but the liquid paraffin works better for sweeping things out. I imagine it's also soothing and lubricating. As you probably saw on the impaction page, with Rocky we actually syringed water into his sac to rinse it out. His sac was very wrinkled and the water rinse was the best way to make sure it was clean.and is the liquid parrafin something that must be on the Q-tip or is water okay?
I think if you can't find liquid paraffin/mineral oil, plain Vaseline (petroleum jelly) might work. I thought I remembered reading from someone on here once that vegetable oils, like olive oil, aren't good to use because they could become rancid inside the sac.
When you're cleaning the penis, you definitely need to use some sort of lubricating something. Plain water isn't going to do it.
