She needs to go to the vet. It's unlikely that she has worms unless she spends a lot of time outside grazing on grass that's frequented by wildlife.

Take her to the vet!
Guinea pigs dont need to be wormed like a dog does. When my pigger started losing weight, it turned out to be heart/organ issues.

Hi I am so sorry. It could have been a gut problem sometimes guinea-pigs guts will twist inside each other we had a guinea-pig die of this. Worming guinea-pigs never heard of this we have had guinea-pigs for years and have never wormed them.
