Misty and Sooty have started to scratch alot recently. What would be best to use incase it's fleas or something? I saw the spot on for small animals today but wasn't sure how safe it would be and they just had a bath last week so not sure about getting them shampoo. :-\

Don't think its likely to be fleas. more likely mites. The Anti-parasite Spot On is quite good as it contains Ivermectin. You need to weigh your pigs for the correct dosage, but it is quite effective but if, after a few weeks they are still scratting, best to get them checked over at the vets.
