Ivermectin and removing wood items

Post by River on Mon Jun 27, 2016 9:55 pm

Well, well. I need to treat with Ivermectin to be safe, since one of my girls has a bit off missing eye-fur - but wouldn't you know it. All their items are cardboard/wood/felt, except for the wheel, water, and food bowl! Luckily, I have one ceramic hide my sister had used for her past hamster, but I'm not sure it'll hold both the girls comfortably. It's one that was meant to be used for sand. How should I go bout this? Should all wood/cardboard be removed nonetheless - despite the signs of mites being so moderate - and just leave them with what little I have that's ceramic/plastic/metal, or should I just spray the wood toys and hides and such? Not sure how to go about this - first time I've had to deal with ivermectin.

I would throw away the cardboard, wash the felt, and put some of the diluted ivermectin in a spray bottle and spritz the wooden item and let it fully dry. Give a good wash to the tank and plastic toys. You'll be good to go.
