Is there a wormer you can recommend? If it's a good idea to worm guinea pigs I would like to do that.
Thanks.

First of all, why didn't you just ask your question in THAT thread on that forum?

Ivermectin would be your best bet, in any case.

I am sorry, didn't think about asking there, my mistake.

Worms are not common in pigs and they rarely if ever get them. There is no need to worm a pig unless it's been confirmed by a vet that the pig actually has worms.

All this talk of worms in pigs is starting a panic among probies/newbies and making them think that worming is something that has to be done. In my almost 5 years on this forum, I have seen only one documented case of worms.

Bottom line is don't worm your pigs just for the sake of doing it.
