I'm not trying to worry you more than you already are, but I personally know somone who had a perfectly healthy hedgehog that died two days after he was treated with his first dose of Ivermectin. Perhaps it's rare to be fatal on the first dose, but in this case it was. He may not have even had mites. It was just the protocol of that office to treat every hedgehog with Ivermectin. I'm going to agree strongly with the DesereeM81
