The vet said it was mites and gave him Xeno 50-mini, which we need to us every 2 weeks 2 more times. However, I've been looking online as he's still been scratching, maybe a little...

    Hi all Don't know if anyone has used this before but I would recommend it if you ever have issues with fungal problems, also I have found out the vets around by me use it in their clinics and other clinics they have worked in. It's called ANIGENE which is an Anti-Fungal animal shampoo which...
