The reason they cannot is because as a fruit and its high fat content it slows down the intestine of a guinea pig giving it health issues.

If you guinea pig was to eat a small amount by accident they should be fine but larger amounts could cause significant harm to a guinea pig.

If a significant amount of avocados is consumed by your guinea pig then consult a veterinarian right away to medical advice.
