Beaphar Anti-Mange is an effective, veterinary strength medicine containing ivermectin to prevent and treat mange mite infestations on rabbits, guinea pigs and rats.
The first signs of a mange mite infestation are severe itching and hair loss. Continuous scratching can cause your pet’s skin to become red and inflamed, leading to skin infections. Beaphar Anti Mange is ideal for use at any time of year as a preventative measure or to treat an active infestation.
Suitable for rabbits and guinea pigs from 4 weeks of age, and rats.
We recommend treating all the animals in the cage or hutch at the same time, and treating the environment with a suitable insecticide.
Manufacturers recommendations for use:
Wear gloves when applying.
Rats: 1 spray
Guinea pigs 4–9 weeks of age: 1 spray
Guinea pigs from 9 weeks of age: 2 sprays
Rabbits from 4 weeks of age: 2 sprays per kg of bodyweight
