Question by  johnny46 (16)

What can be done about walking dandruff on guinea pigs?


Answer by  patti (29325)

The flaking is likely a sign of a skin infection, lice or mites. Rather than guess, take your guinea pig to a veterinarian who handles exotics so that the animal can get the proper diagnosis and treatment.

Walking dandruff is probably lice, fleas or mites. You will have to take your guinea pigs to a qualified exotics vet for a course of ivermectin or Revolution. Refer to your vet for dosages.

For some reason, guinea pigs tend to have many skin problems. Taking the pig to the vet to get some kind of treatment would be your best option. The tend to give you a bath treatment called sulfer to bath the pig in. Contact your local vet.
