Has anyone had a lice infestation, and if so how did you handle it? It
looks like one of my pigs brought it home from a vet and now it is through
all of them.
Sorry I forgot to mention that lice are very "species specific"
this means that they generally can not breed on another species.
If they picked them up from a non piggy probably a bath or two
would fix the problem. If you had a sick or week animal they
may need a chemical treatment.
