Instead of taking Lentil to the vets to get some ivermectin, could I not just purchase some Xeno 450 pipettes online and treat him myself?

Do you think it would work out cheaper?

Has anyone used Xeno 450 before for mange mites?

Many thanks x

Near Plymouth, Devon.
The vets gave Buddy Xeno 450 last Monday, all mites signs were gone by Thursday :) Though they usually need two treatments to take into account eggs/unhatched mites.

Does anyone know what the youngest age is for babies to be treated with xeno or similar mite drugs? Which is the best treatment for them?

I have found the xeno which can be used on guinea pigs with a body weight less than 800g, I just wasn't sure if there was a minimum age.

Yet my vet was going to give it to my youngest who was the size of a large syrian when we got her.

Sweep had mange when we had him and it took 3 doses of Xeno 450 2 weeks apart plus a steroid injection to break the cycle of scratching before he was given the all clear
