Poor old Rocky. His beautiful peruvian coat is now full of bugs >:(

Ivomec called for.

;D...oh the joys of hay mites...pesky little tricky devils to get rid of. :o

Do you find ivomec works on hay mites ? I have found shampooing best, but usually takes a few times.

Some of my pigs had them earlier this year. I bed mine on hay so its a catch 22 situation.

a combination of Ivomec and baths is best. Unfortunately Rocky HATES baths. :o

Rocky had a jab. He shrieked and shrieked.
We have also got some oral ivomec to have next week.

I brushed him with the nit comb Roger gave me last night. Got lots of the little buggers out.
Rocky keeps biting me at the moment. Poor love.
