    Lice or mites?

    I've done some reading about mites and lice on the forum, but I'm not sure I know which are which. I'm thinking we have lice, but I'm not sure. Here's what I'm seeing. Josie and Lucy are both itchy, and both have dry, flaky skin. I've found a couple of tiny white or yellowish parasites on...

    We lost Oliver last spring. He had a fractured toe that got infected. We took him to our cavy savvy vet several times and did all that we could. He always made me smile. He's his famous circus elephant pose. :love:

    Hi everyone!
