    lice

    My guinea pigs have lice. On the Lynx web site it said that Ivermectin may work. I have some so I was plaining on treating with that. If it does not work how long do I wait to treat with Advantage?

    Re: lice

    You might want to post this on the guinea pig lynx medical forum site instead. They're the more the experts at guinea pig medical care than we are, and probably would have be able to better answer your question, although some people post on both boards.

    Topical ivermectin may work. But horse paste won't. Which form do you have?

    Re: lice

    It is the topical ivermectin. After doing more reading I think I will go ahead and treat them with it.
