I’m currently in the Philippines and most ivermectin I’ve seen in the market are advertised for dogs. Can I use it on my pigs?

The info on the box is: Ivermectin Dermgard 10mg/ml topical solution ectoparasiticide 15ml bottle

I’m really desperate for treatment and vets don’t really treat guinea pigs here.

Yes. Ivermectin is ivermectin, and is given to a wide range of animals, including people.

What you've got is a 1% solution, so this chart should be accurate for dosing: http://www.guinealynx.info/topical_ivermectin.html

You won't give more than a drop or two. Put it behind the ears on the bald spot, fold the ear over, and rub it in.
