    Question Can I use the cat's ivermectin on my guineas?

    I think Thor & Jojo may have mites of some sort, they're scratching like crazy. It just started a few days ago and I haven't noticed any hair loss but I have a pregnant Calypso in the same room and don't want her sick, so I thought if there aren't many side effects (?) I'd just do the better safe and not sorry thing and use Ivermectin on all three. Also, I haven't noticed Calypso scratching excessively, but she has a little sore behind her ear. It just came up this afternoon and it doesn't seem to be bothering her, but there's nothing for her to get scratched on in her cage...

    Do any of them even need it?

    Is it safe if I'm not sure that they do?

    Can I use the old one from the cat on them?
    should I delute it? how much??

    No, you won't want to use the cat stuff. Do a search on ivermectin at www.guinealynx.info .

    I would go ahead and treat all your pigs.

    Thanks, they're all good now, I'm pretty sure she just got nipped and I'm being an over-protective momma, everybody's fine though. No scratching, sneezing, sores, anything, but I will keep a really close eye out for it just incase.
