mites/lice or fighting?

Post by redrach on Fri Apr 06, 2012 6:44 am

Rincewinde & Twoflower seem to have scabs/cuts across their back behind their heads, like across their shoulders.



If it's mites/lice I have NO idea where they got them from... I've not changed bedding or anything at all.
Either way, I'm worried 'cause Chandler is going back and forth, so I'm assuming Chandler will have caught it too and therefore also Albie. Plus, the girls are in the top half of the cage and therefore could also get it. AND Rachel's boys are pretty close to the retirement cage, so maybe they could get them too? This is actually a complete nightmare Cry

I have beaphar, but can they be treated if they have open wounds, will it burn them or anything?

Sorry I don't know but from the picture his ears look a bit sore at the edges so it might be mites... just a guess though

It is mites, and don't panic, just treat them all Smile it's not something they've picked up most likely, just general stress if groups have been altered etc can set off these flare ups Smile
