guinea pigs


Question by  DANI42 (17)

Can I use aromatherapy for scabies in guinea pigs?

I know that aromatherapy has many benefits but am unsure if it will really help my guinea pigs.

No you cannot use aromatherapy for scabies in guinea pigs. Guiea pigs are much too small for this type of treatment.

Do NOT try this. Guinea pigs are very sensitive to strong smells and you could seriously hurt them with home remedies. Do not try any course of treatment that has not been diagnosed and recommended by an EXOTICS vet (i.e. one who specialises in rodents, not an ordinary cat/dog vet).


Answer by  traumatised (3285)

No. It can be VERY dangerous, even fatal. Take your pet to a qualified exotics vet (who specialises in rodents) for a proper diagnosis and course of treatment.

No. Do not start any course of treatment that has not been approved by an exotics vet (one who specializes in treating small rodents).


Answer by  traumatised (3285)

No. They have very sensitive senses of smell and you could seriously harm them. Do not do anything that hasn't been recommended by a qualified exotics vet.
