A simple NO.what do you guys think of the johnsons ear drop for ear mites in guinea pigs. my piggy’s don’t have ear mites but i might add it to my emergency kit for them.
A simple NO.
There is a good reason why we have not included any ear treatments because they should always be checked by a vet and not be subject to any home treatment on spec. The scope for permanent damage you can do is too great because the window for treating some potentially fatal ear issues successfully is relatively small.
Rabbit ear mites in guinea pigs are only ever a problem if you have both guinea pigs and rabbits in close proximity - and to be honest, we hardly ever see ear mite issues in good care!
We do however most emphatically not recommend to DIY treat on spec with any low dosed broad spectrum pet shop products and rather see a vet for a proper diagnosis and proper quality treatment.
They are usually low dosed and we wouldn’t recommend them. You would still need to get to a vet for diagnosis and vet prescribed strength ivermectin treatment as part of the correct prescribed multiple treatment courseokay , thank you i had no idea!
arnt over the counter ivermectin treatments good for furr mites good either? because my piggy had mites before and we used a ivermectin treatment and his hair grew back, are furr mite treatment ok?
