my vet has prescribed albendasole for deworming my guinea pigs but i doubt if it is safe, can any one help me
 
Why does your vet think your pigs need to be dewormed? Most pigs do not have worms. A safer medication to use, if you have reason to believe your pigs have worms, is Revolution, which is a topical medication.
 
Ditto foggycreekcavy. Most pigs don't have worms, and do not need regular worming like dogs and cats do.

If you'll post the name of the city closest to you, we might be able to point you to a better vet -- dog and cat vets usually know very little about guinea pigs, and much of what they "know" is wrong.
