I am pretty sure that my almost 1yr old fancy mouse has mites. He has been itching and has a rash looking patch on his neck/back. I tried to do a lot of research but there was not a lot of info for mice with mites.

I got Ivermectin paste 1.87% apple flavored oral dewormer for horses. https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/durvet-ivermectin-paste-187-608-g?cm_vc=-10005
I got it from a tractor supply store that is an hour away from me. But now Im seeing that people who have mice are using the pour-on cattle ivermectin https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/durvet-ivermectin-pour-on-250-ml?cm_vc=-10005

Should I drive back to the store to get the cattle ivermectin and put a diluted drop inbetween the mouses shoulder blades or can someone tell me how to safely use the horse dewormer because idk if I am supposed to do it topically or orally or how much to use or how to dilute it.

Thank you for any help!!

The safest way is with properly diluted cattle pour-on. All the info on it is here: https://www.petmousefanciers.com/t17-itching-hair-loss-and-parasites.

I would not use the oral paste. It’s extremely difficult to dose properly. The topical one is much much safer.
