Hello

In my bunny barn at the corner is a one 5 stacker of my kids guinea pigs. Yesterday I found LICE of 2 of the cages. EWWW.

SO I treated them all with topical ivermection..cleaned the cages..etc..and MOVED the stacker to the garage (warm) for a month during treatment.

I DO NOT want that in my barn with my elops.

I treated my elops as a precaution JUST IN CASE. But I am assuming lice from cavies can go to rabbits..correct? I sprayed the area where the pigs where down with flea/tick/lice spray..Zodiak...and wiped down..as well as a light mix of bleach..(very light ..had the ventaltion going for my buns)


Anyhow..lice can go to the rabbits? Correct? I did all I can to clean/treat...so now I am at the mercy of the treatment.

EWWWWWWWW

I believe that GP lice is specific to guinea pigs ; Guinea Lynx is the site to go for guinea pig info that is accurate

http://www.guinealynx.info/lice.html


I would join guinea lynx and get the pigs off of the Zodiac treated area as this drug to my knowledgeis not safe for guinea pigs

But the zodiak...was not used ON the pigs.

The post states it was used in the area where they were.

I was thinking that itmight have a negative effect on them if they were having any direct contact with the spray in their living area

I did read your post and I am only tring to clarify whether or not this product is even safe near rabbits/guinea pigs.
The reason I am attempting to clarify it is not only for your benefit but because many other forum members read Infirmary posts to gain information and we attempt to be as correct as possible to ensure the health of their small animals.
