Hi. Is there a guide on here relating to mites please? One of our GPs was twitching a bit this evening for the first time and I am wondering what it could be.

Thanks @Siikibam . They have a little bite of themselves every now and again and a scratch but I wouldn't say it was frequent scratching and biting at all. Just the one twitching last night for the first time but they both seem perfectly fine in themselves.

They do appear to be biting when they’re cleaning themselves, and they do have a scratch every now and then. Just keep an eye on it for now.
