My guinea pig has fleas! Is it normal? How should I treat it?
Do you see the fleas? It’s actually not very common for guinea pigs to have fleas, but the most common ailment in guinea pigs by far is mange mites, which are microscopic and make your guinea pig itch like crazy! They are also fatal if let untreated. You need to get your guinea pig to a reputable exotics vet and have it treated with either Ivermectin, Revolution, or Advantage.
It isn’t normal but it is not uncommon for them to get parasites. Mites and lice are more common than fleas http://www.guinealynx.info/parasites.htm…
Its probably mites! take him to the vet.
