Q&A: when does the first ivermectin shot start working for guinea pigs?

Question by Meana: when does the first ivermectin shot start working for guinea pigs?
my piggie R2-D2 just got the first of two shots for mange mites yesterday and he’s still scratching like crazy which was expected. when should the itchiness start to go away? thanks for any help.

Best answer:

Answer by preciselysimple
the ivermectin will start to work instantly killing the mites … but it may take a while for the irritation caused by them on her skin to go away… the follow up shot is usually to rid of any mites that may have hatched … by the second shot you should see hair retuning… even possibly giving them a soothing oatmeal bath will help
