Hi everyone! I have two boars named Lewis and Clark. I noticed that they will itch a lot but there’s no hair loss or scarring/bloody marks from the scratching. I looked around their bums and say white flakes and I have been told that is static/hay mites..I have heard that Ivermectin & Lice n’ Easy Shampoo from Gorgeous Guineas works wonders but since I’m in the US..the only item that would get here quickly is the ivermectin. Is there any other shampoo I can get from amazon or a store to relive/kill those pesky kites?

please don’t use any products until you have seen a vet For the correct diagnosis. The vet will then prescribe the correct strength treatment if mites are confirmed. The correct way to treat mites is via an appropriate course of treatment which takes place over several weeks and ensures all life cycles of the mites are killed.
