piggie parisites

I think my piggie(Pepper) has lice . Does any one know what I can use to get rid of them or how to treat them?

I have dealt with those "buggers" in the past. This is where I got my information on taking care of them. Linky Doo

I'd get Pepper checked out at your vets just to make sure it is lice as if you haven't had them before best to get a second opinion if you can and then follow a line of appropriate treatment

I recently took in a rescue piggie that had lice. I treated her with two drops of Revolution topically and it took care of the problem.
