MITES ON PIGS

Camrosa's own Berkshire sow had a severe mite problem causing constant irritation and rubbing resulting in dry, elephantine, scaly skin - see photograph at the top.
The middle photograph demonstrates our director's failure to follow her own instructions correctly! Camrosa Ointment was applied on the obviously affected area but she failed to also apply it in a wide band encircling this area. This is essential as mites work outwards into new sites. As a result the mites on the periphery were able to migrate away to a fresh area, resulting in recovery and bristle regrowth at the original site, but bristle loss and discomfort in the new area.
As you can see from the photograph at the bottom, once the instructions had been followed properly, the mites were cleared and the sow had a glossy coat all over.
"I have used Camrosa very successfully on both cattle and pigs.We rescued a litter of piglets. Needless to say they developed cracks and sores on the legs ... after the success with Camrosa on the cattle we thought that we would try it on the pigs. Their legs were dressed daily with Camrosa until all the lesions healed and the swelling had gone. The skin resumed its normal healthy pink colour. The pigs became tame too!"
