Our expert says:
I use advantage to treat fleas on guinea pigs. You do not have to deworm your guinea pigs unless you guineas have worms – I use Ivermectin (note this product is not licensed for use in guinea pigs in SA). My best advice is to contact your local vet and ask for his/her opinion on the matter.
If you want to brush up on guinea pig husbandry then check out what literature/books are available from bookshops or the Internet. There are also guinea pig forums and these can be very informative even for vets.
I hope this helps
