think how difficult it is going to be to sort the problem out. However, the first thing that you need to ask is; are guinea pig mite contagious? The guinea pig mite that you see will be one of
two types: Trixacarus caviae or Chirodiscoides caviae.
Luckily, both varieties of mites are specific to the species, so it is impossible for them to live on other animals. However, there is no discrimination between guinea pigs, they can and will infect any other guinea pig
that you have living with the one that has the mites. That passing of the mites can be done through bedding or fur contact. Therefore, if one of your guinea pigs has them, you are best to
separate them as quickly as you can, change all of the bedding, and treat them all straight away.
