That's a pile of money! What have they had? We've had uti, uri and now ringworm. I'm hoping to make it to June without spending more.... I used to have a nasty Filofax habit and a new bag a month. Now I have guinea pigs.

Aw poor pigs :(

Toast had a bad URI and had to be taken to out of hours vets at 5am (costing £150 just to be seen at that hour :yikes:) she's had several xrays and scans to check for hormonal issues, she was diagnosed with arthritis in her back legs, she's had a UTI twice, cystitis, severe bloat, she's been under anesthetic to have her teeth filed down, and now she's been treated for mites :doh:

Beans hasn't been too bad, she's had an ulceration in her eye from a hay poke, and it was discovered that she has cataracts in both eyes so she'll be fully blind eventually... and she also has mites.

I too used to spend a fortune on clothes/bags, now it all goes on my furry little children :D

I would just give the Xeno, they can have a bath too but it needs to be at least 48 hours apart from the spot on treatment.
