Hi Doreen

Mite infestations can be treated with veterinary products such as ivermectin, Moxydectin or Nomectin - I would advise that you visit your vet to get the aquired treatment following a clinical examination.

Household products that can be used include Benzyl benzoate, Paraffin and Petroleum Jelly. Yhese products would only be used in the initial syages of infestation/minor infection. Treatment is for 3-4 days for 2 weeks and includes soaking the infested area with the products outlined above
