I have 5 Guinea pigs. One of them has had mange twice and each time has to go for a set of 3 injections. One of our local vets has said that they can't pass it on to each other but the other vet has said that they can. I was told that we used to be able to get a shampoo/lotion over here that would treat mange but it's no longer available (England). Is there such a lotion? and if so is it possible for me to order it. I find it very distressing to hear my pigs squeal when they are having a jab so a lotion/shampoo would be far less distressing for them. One of my younger pigs is now showing signs of mange. They are in every other way perfectly healthy, they eat plenty of veg etc.
I would be grateful if you could reply.
