I just adopted four new rats and am seeing signs of mites. One in particular looks anemic, she very quiet and her ear and nose are very pale. I tried to give them all ivermectin with a toothpick but was only half successful. Two licked it up immediately. The other two, one of whom is the anemic one, would not go near it and tried their best to get away. We played a game of chase for a bit, with me trying to get Delicious to take her medicine, and Chai and Milla following behind trying to get the an extra dose!

Any suggestions on how to get it in to my two shy ratties?

Wrap them in a towel and then put the meds right on their teeth (using the toothpick). We have a few difficult ones here too and that's what we do. They will lick it off of their teeth.
