    Skin Problems Dandruff...lice...mites.... Or what?!

    So the vets this afternoon went well. She tried to find mites under a scope after getting a sample of skin/fur using clear tape, but could not find any. She said that it may still be mites even though she could find any or it could be caused from changing of the seasons, and with their hair...

    Skin Problems Dandruff...lice...mites.... Or what?!

    yubie there is not reason to apologize. I understand that you were trying to help. Yes I am 16 but I probably know a lot more about medications and care for animals then most my age do (I want to become a vet). I have talked to my mom and she is more considering just taking them to the vet...

    Skin Problems Dandruff...lice...mites.... Or what?!

    Fleece Will these fleece work?

    The wicking stage only has to be done before you use it (maybe 5 washes with drying). Every cleaning you can use vinegar (helps with the smell) with free and clear soap also. Drying sheets should never be used also because of the fabric softener which adds the coating back on the fleece(the...
