For about three or four weeks now, Miguel has been scratching. I've treated him for mites with Xeno and I've been bathing the back of his neck with a saline solution and then using a foot powder to dry the area which seems to be helping a little but there's no denying that gradually it's getting worse. I hate this OCD scratching even more than I hate tumours!
So the question is, has anyone found a miracle cure yet? Should I ask the vet to give him a steroid injection (which hasn't helped my other mouse who has the same problem) or should I just continue with the current treatment and pray he doesn't make himself too sore?
Has anyone tried an alternative mite treatment to the Xeno (Frontline for dogs/cats for instance)?
