Hi Rebecca,
It sounds like you are doing everything right for poor
Wilfy. Usually the injections of ivermectin are once a
week for three weeks. You should also treat Jimmy Pig
as well. While Peanut and Cookie were being treated
with ivermectin, my vet instructed me to clean their
cage every day for the first week of treatment. I'm
not sure how important that is - mange mites need a
host to live - but if you were using towels I suppose
it wouldn't be that costly to change them everyday.
Hope they get better.
