  1. Mites
    I rushed Breckenridge to the vet a week ago after I found an abscess growing at his quill line. She removed the excess skin, cleaned out the wound, and dressed it to prevent further infection. After testing him for mites, it came back positive and I was devastated. She gave him an Ivermectin...
  2. Mites
    Vet gave me two option when we figured my sow might have mites, either ivermectin or advocate which contains imidacloprid and moxidectin. No revolution treatment unfortunately. What exactly is this imidacloprid + moxidectin treatment and is it effective at treating mite infestation? It's from...

  6. Mites

  7. Mites
    So, I got a hedgehog two days ago, and I'm almost positive he has mites. There are tiny white bugs crawling over him (they are much smaller than fleas). I would love to avoid taking him to a vet, because from everything I've read it seems that a vet will treat him even if the test comes up...
