We have fur mites!

Poor little aggressive bun has a bad case of fur mites. Vet says that may be the source of his aggression. He got a oral dose of Ivermectin today, and will get another dose in 2 weeks. The other 2 babies, though everyone is separated, need to be treated too. He is a sad little sight.

Poor little dude.

poor thing, but hopefully as the mites clear up he'll become less aggressive...

I'll bet it's a relief to know what ails him. I hope he's better soon. Do you know where he got them? At the vet's when was neutered?

He'll feel better and behave better soon, we hope.I'm sure I'd certainly feel more than a bit off if I had fur mites....

Poor baby! We just got rid of mites in our crew, and it was a bit of a battle. The long stretch out legs and binkies are a great reward for all the work. Feel better!

Hope that's it! Wonder if it is super warm January? Where do they come from?

Doc. W. is seeing them a lot lately!

Maybe aggressive cause is not handle.
