Re: Carefresh & Mites
I did buy it from both PetSmart and PetSupermarket & both sell animals.

The hairless rat has no mites and neither does Herisson. They both just got a drop of Revolution in case they are carriers and all will have another drop in 3 weeks. The disinfection of all 3 cages, accessories and bedding was very time consuming. I also threw away some items that could not be cleaned properly. Well worth it to end this cycle!
I called the vet for the name of the nasty critters.
Here it is: Radfordia ensifera
