Hi, I am pretty sure my guinea pig has mites. She has lost a patch of hair on her back and is acting irritated. She isn't itching and does not have any scabbing. What can I buy to get rid of the mites?

Dear Melissa,

It would be safer to bring the guinea pig to your veterinarian to get a confirmed diagnosis. Did you change bedding or did she have contact with some one else? You can use DERMA-IONX to control the symptoms to make her more comfortable. But you will need to do something more eradicate the causative agent if it is mites.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
