    Have some questions about invermectin really need help.

    Hi new here hope this is right place to ask, so Im pretty darn sure my piggies got mites there itching like crazy all 3 and cant find lice fleas etc. Now being where I live and very limited access to invermectin the only type I can get an do have is an oral solution for horse it says 10mg per ml , Im wondering hoping that I can still use an oral solution direct on skin and if so will it absorb and work the same and if I can how much should I use, I feel bad there itching and getting little scabs from it? If anyone can help would be much appreciated ,Thnx in advance .

    Re: Have some questions about invermectin really need help.

    Here's a thread about how to treat for lice and mites: https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum...mites-and-lice

    But I have some questions.

    Is your ivermectin a real solution, or is it a paste? And is it definitely 10 mg/ml, or 100 mg/ml?

    If it's 10 mg/ml, then this is the dosing chart: http://www.guinealynx.info/topical_ivermectin.html. And you can definitely put the ivermectin in the bald spot behind the ears.

    Just be aware that this is a TINY dose.

    Hi thanks for reply , It says right on it Oral solution Invermectin liquid its a 15ml syringe full of liquid no paste.....and definitely 10mg per ml which looking at chart I need only 0.05cc thats literally 2 drops your right small dose. I was worried I needed the pour-on or injectable only to apply to skin and oral wouldn't work ,glad it does. I appreciate the help greatly so do my little ladies,have good night.
