The last two days both my boys (Branston & Baby Pig) keep itching alot of the time. I keep checking them but can't see anything in their fur but if they did have mites, is it true you can't see them?

Should I treat them anyway? Baby Pig is only 11weeks, so is he old enough to be treated?

I've haven't had any problems before so am not too sure what to do.

No, you can't see mites. You might notice some flaky/ scurfy skin, particularly on their back, and they may develop sores from scratching. You can use a spot on treatment. Xeno 450 is for pigs over 800g and Xeno 50 is for pigs under 800g. :)
