I was just holding one of my boars Ace and noticed he was scratching. I looked at his skin and saw (eww!) little white bugs crawling around! So i was wondering if it was fleas or lice. Also my mom called the vet and made an appointment but it's still 3 weeks away (we havent gone to the vet with the pigs before). So I was just wondering what to do til then. I will change the fleece more often and stuff, but what can I do for Ace until we see the vet? Will I catch the lice from him? What is the usual teatment for guinea pigs, and how effective? I saw a few different things when I looked it up. Well I'm kinda nevous because they havent had any medical problems before and I don't know where they would have picked lice up from. Any answers to theese questions would be very helpful. Thanks!
