When I picked him up at the end of the auction, I noticed he had poo on his butt. He was stuck in a small handmade crate, so I gave him a bath when we got home. When I got to his vent, I felt more and more of what I thought was poo. Turned him around and BOOM! LICE! LICE EVERYWHERE. It’s making my scalp itch just thinking about it. So after the bath, I snipped out what I saw.
Retreated again a week later ( a permethrin powder in the bedding and spray on him ), and felt around some more during his bath. Still had some.
So now is 2 weeks later, nits and nests are dead - no crawlies. Is there an easier way of getting the dead nests off of him, especially since there are SOOOO many? I honestly thought about getting a shaver since snipping with scissors is time consuming and stresses him out. If I were to try and mush while he’s in the bath or with olive oil, it’d take me 3 hours.
And yes, the vendor was reported. Made me so mad. But at least now he’s with someone who can and will take care of him.
