[Histonet] guinea pig IHC

Has anyone ever performed IHC on frozen sections of guinea pig tissue?  I
am experiencing an enormous amount of bubbling when doing the peroxidase
blocking step, even though I'm only using a 0.3% concentration of H2O2.
And when I say 'enormous', I mean it's like continuous champagne bubbles
rising out of the tissue, even after 20 minutes in the H2O2 solution.

I can't find anything in the literature that mentions guinea pigs having a
higher peroxidase content in their tissues.

Thanks for any help that anyone can provide.
