OK. I will have to get them weighed, so I can calculate the dose for each of them.

Ugh! I just realized that if I give the first dose Wed., I will still be away the following Wed. I would hate to hold off until Friday, but I will be back the following Friday. I was thinking the doses were spaced 2 weeks apart. What might you do in this case? The med comes Wed., and I am away starting the following Mon., until Fri.

You can hold off until Friday for the second dose. 9 days should be okay. Keep in mind, you can do four doses with the last three one week apart.

Is there any rule of thumb for when they might start to feel some relief? And, what about the coconut oil? Should I hold off on that during the ivermectin treatment, or can it be applied something like the following day?

Can take 3 or sometimes 4 treats, depending on how severe the mites are, but I've generally seen some improvement after the 2nd treatment.

The coconut oil could interfere with the ivermectin by blocking its absorption into the skin.

That was my concern, but the day after the first application, I did put oil on them. They are still scratching a lot, and their skin is dandruffy, so I figured it might be good to do up until a couple days before the next treatment. One of them put a deep red scratch on his back. I put some Butt Paste on that spot. I was dreading having this problem still unresolved while I have to go away. Now I will worry about them night & day.
