So 3 of my girls have mites. One of my piggies to the extent that she has self inflicted wounds I spray them with mite and lice spray every 2 months and spray out their cages with it regularly too.

Is there something more I could be doing or a more effective spray that would work better for them?

I have a vet apt for my 2 other girls on monday so will definately ask the vet about my other 3 but am not sure it can wait that long as its still 4-5 days away and it seems to be getting worse...

help!

For one, the 'mite and lice spray' is completely useless, except for lining a bin.

Go to your local pet store and get the 'kitten and puppy Revolution' Put a little drop behind each ear. Repeat treatment every 7 days, totalling in 3 treatments.

You might want to treat piggies against fungal as well - there is a lot of it going around this season, so always worth a preventative teatment against it. About a week after the Ivomec treatment, bath piggies using Malaseb shampoo.
Good luck with clearing up the itchies!
