Possible mange?(REVOLUTION the answer?)
Posted in the Guinea Pigs Forum

My two lovely pigs, Lily(3)and Chet(6-wow!)have had the itchy and scratchy's for a few months(a little more often than usual). I thought that I had scabies, but 5 doctors have told me that I don't. I was treated with Permethrin and Ivermectin, so maybe I don't have them anymore...but poor little Lily and Chet continue to scratch. I did look at the "Lynx" Rx site for help, and it told me to give them Horse Paste Ivermectin 3-4x once per week. I have given it to them 2x now and have noticed a LITTLE improvement, but not much. I was wondering, has anyone ever used REVOLUTION on their pig before, and if so, how much? Or has anyone tried anything else (besides the VET, ofcourse!)I have also tried NEEM. No good. Helped temporarily...

I have a guinea pig with suspected mange mite and the vet gave me Revolution for kittens and puppies. There are 3 doses in the box and noodles will need the 3 doses. Squeeze 1 little tube on the back of the neck where they can't lick it, then 2 weeks later do it again, and then 2 weeks after that give the 3rd dose.
I have noticed a big difference in 2 days. No itching. Any other guinea pigs must be treated at he same time.
