Hello everyone. I suspect my mouse has mites and I want to treat using the post on here regarding ivermectin. I have called many vets and they refuse to look at a mouse.. I'm in Canada and I cannot find it anywhere, let alone a bottle less that 1liter. Where could I buy it online? Or a similar product that can be used topically?  Or any other suggestions on how to treat my mouse.
My mouse is a single male with itching and hair thinning where he scratches. His skin is also flaky on his back, but no scabs have appeared yet.

I get mine at my local Tractior Supply Company or TSC. Any store that sells stuff for cattle, goats, or other farm animals should have it.

You may need to buy it in a 8.5oz container then dilute it 1 part to 5 parts water before applying it to your mouse.

Due to idiots using it on themselfs during covid it may be in a locked case.

Topical treatment would be best. But if you have mice you can't handle (like deer mice) then spraying diluted ivermectin over the fresh bedding each time you clean the cage works great to reduce mites and dust at the same time.

I have been explicitly told by farm store employees in both BC and Ontario that it's been banned for sale in stores for years. Unless they've "unbanned" it recently, it was not available in any retail Canadian stores (in person or online) a couple years back.

Canadian vets recommend and use Revolution on mice for parasites and bugs, it's a tiny little drop, if you have a bigger pet you can get away with buying a tube for them and using a tiny plastic syringe to split it into drops for mice. It costs significantly less per ML as you go up in sizes of tubes and the biggest tubes are for big dogs, but you can buy it from a vet who has seen your pet before without an appointment usually which would be the main cost if you wanted it for your mouse specifically, since they are legally required to charge an exam fee for pets they don't know and that's upwards of $100 at this point. The Revolution itself is more like $20-40 depending on location, size, and provincial guidelines.
