Easy to use once you get the top off ( I always struggle but have learnt to remove the top before catching the Guinea pig!). Reasonably priced product. Never noticed any side effects.

I used this on all my rabbits and Guineas pigs when I noticed one day my guinea pig was overcome with rabbit fur mites (more than I’d deem ‘normal’)
So after much research online, I bought loads of these to serve all of my small furries. And wow, it did it’s job in one go!!! So I shall be upkeeping better with this on my small curries to avoid a future outburst of fur mites! Great stuff!

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Beaphar Anti-Parasite Spot On, including answers from our team.

E cunniculi


Will this help prevent E Cunnuculi in rabbits

  • VioVet Staff

This spot on contains ivermectin which is not effective against E.Cuniculi. Preventing E.Cuniculi is very difficult, you can use Panacur for rabbits as this contains fenbendazole which will treat the issue. However it will only prevent the condition when being actively dosed. This means you would need to dose daily for your rabbits entire life. There are no guaranteed prevention protocols for E.Cuniculi in rabbits that involve a reasonable dose regime. Some vets will advise a 9 day course of Panacur every 1 to 3 months as a compromise.

How many times a week?


I just put on the first dose, when do i put the 2 and the 3 dose?

  • VioVet Staff

The datasheet for this medication advises that 'If necessary, the treatment can be repeated after 4 weeks.'. I recommend repeating after this time if you are concerned parasites are still present.

Can this be used on a nursing ferret?


My ferret has a litter of 2 week old kits. They have suddenly all got fleas. Can I treat the mother? If I do will the kits get some protection? At what age could the kits be treated? Thanks.

  • VioVet Staff

The University of
Edinburgh exotics referral service provided some anecdotal information:"We cannot advise treatment with Xeno or other ivermectin drugs [This
includes the Beaphar spot on] in pregnant or lactating females as there
have been no extensive studies carried out to confirm safety. However,
from personal experience, on any occasions it has been used, no adverse
effects have been noted in the offspring or dam. Clinician discretion
and judgement should be used for each case."

If treatment is
required, as part of routine parasite control, during pregnancy or
lactation then it would be advisable to delay medication until
post-weaning. Although, if the welfare of the dam was compromised due
to excessive parasite burden, then treatment would be warranted.

recommend discussing this with your local vet as they can advise on
whether treatment is 100% necessary or not. Otherwise it is best to wait
until the kits have been weaned.

Static lice


Hello, i have two girl guinea pigs and noticed one has what i believe is static lice. Does this treat this? I brought them in November/December 2020 and were told they were about 10 weeks old. How many pipettes would i need per guinea pig.

  • VioVet Staff

Yes the Anti-Parasite Spot On for rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets and rats is licensed to treat guinea pigs for lice. You should dose as per the guidelines which are as follows:

Bodyweight Dosage Guideline
300–750g 1 x 150μg pipettes
750–1,500 2 x 150μg pipettes
>1,500g 3 x 150μg pipettes

How long do you need to give them this


How long do you need to give them this for the itching to go away. Does it make it go away forever.

  • VioVet Staff

If the itching is related to parasites then it should resolve once these are eliminated by the product. The datasheet states that 'if necessary, the treatment can be repeated after 4 weeks' so repeat treatment may be required. If you are unsure if the itching is caused by parasites then I recommend contacting your vet to have the issue diagnosed.

Rabbits- Ear Mites?


will this help with suspected ear mites?

  • VioVet Staff

This product is licensed to kill mites so it should have an effect on ear mites. However ear mites live mainly in the wax of the ears themselves and so it can be hard for the product to get to them. I recommend discussing with your vet how to manage this, ear drops or cleaners often are required alongside this.

Is this safe for 9 week old baby rats?


I got 3 pet rats from pet store 2 weeks ago I’m guessing there ages roughly 9 weeks is this safe to use obviously I’m meaning the dose for hamster or gerbil as there babies

  • VioVet Staff

The Beaphar Anti-Parasite Spot On for Hamster/Gerbils is not licensed for use in rats so I cannot advise using it in this instance.
You can use the Beaphar Anti-Parasite Spot On for rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets and rats in your rats though. But your rats must be above 300g to use the product safely.

Beaphar use


If applying this tto the back of the neck and then smoothing down over the hamsters fur, is it safe for the hamster to lick their fur?

  • VioVet Staff

This product should be applied directly to the skin on the back of the neck. This is an area that your hamster cannot lick off, I recommend applying like this as directed. If your hamster does ingest a very small amount of the product then this should cause no issues but I do not advise allowing them to lick a lot of the product off. If you need to apply to multiple places then do this along the upper neck to prevent licking.

Is this suitable for pet Mice?


Is this suitable for pet Mice?

  • VioVet Staff

The smaller version of this spot on, the 'Hamsters and Gerbils' version, is suitable for use in mice weighing 50–300g. If you need any dosing advice then please contact [email protected].

Guinea pig


Iv used this on my guinea pigs today,how long will it take to work and they stop itching

  • VioVet Staff

If you are treating a diagnosed external parasite infection then the itching may worsen as the mites die, over the first week or two. It should then improve slowly until the itching stops.
It can take multiple treatments and up to 8 to 12 weeks to clear a parasite infestation. If the signs persist or you are not 100% sure of the cause of the itch then I advise seeing your vet.
