Now that it is nice outside (finally), I would like to bring my 4 guys outdoors for some fresh air and grass. However, they are still being treated for mites. The scratching has gone way down over the last 2 days, especially with Buster. But I am nervous to bring them outside when they have mites. I'm not sure why I am nervous. I guess I have just been babying them so much the last 2+ weeks. They did have sores for awhile, but they are all closed up now. Do you think that it is ok that I can bring them outside?

What are you treating them with?

I'd say if you're nervous about it, then don't do it yet. Wait until they are fully recovered.

Maybe bring them some grass and dandelion greens while you are waiting for the Ivermectin to finish up.

Better safe than sorry, I suppose. Thanks!
