I treated my two rats for mites on Thursday, I used Beaphar

Customer Question

I treated my two rats for mites on Thursday, I used Beaphar on the spot treatment (will repeat again in 4 weeks?) They seemed to stop itching. Then 24 hours later I cleaned everything in their cage, toys, wooden things and washed bedding. Now they are both itching more than ever, and shaking their ears and coat regularly... what should I do? Does this mean the treatment has not worked? How long should it take for treatment to work?

Thank you
