- I GAVE, dammit!
She also seems to be scratching herself an awful lot and also has a few scabs, I think she may have mites.
Is it a problem to dose her with ivermectin while on the trimeth/sulfa, or should I wait until she´s off the trimeth?
She is being quarantined from our 2 other pigs as of Saturday, we are watching them closely for any symptoms of URI and will be dosing them with ivermectin coinciding with her mite dosing.
How long should we keep her away from the other pigs--the full 10 days until antibiotics are done and her symptoms are gone? Thanks
Quarantine: The safest thing to do would be to quarantine her until she is done with her meds and well. Some people would assume your resident pigs had already been exposed and just put them together once treatment had started (example: at my daughter´s school, once you are on antibiotics for a day, they do not consider you contageous). It may be less stressful to be in a familiar environment with familiar pigs.
This is something else you could ask your vet -- or make your own decision. Good luck with your little pig. I hope she recovers quickly!
With an extremely bad infestation, it might be a different story.
Maybe Josephine knows for sure?
