I have Rikki out, and I just noticed he was scratching a lot behind his ears. I pulled the fur back and he has little scabs behind both ears, but they aren't anywhere else on his body. Would this possibly be mites? I pulled his fur around and didn't see fleas (can you see mites?). It's only behind the ears though which is weird. I know it's irritating him though and itchy since when I touched it he closed his eyes and acted like he wanted me to scratch it (which I didn't of course). I'm taking Ty Saturday to be checked since he was neutered and could take Rikki as well to be looked at. Is there anything I can do for him now to help though? Is there a sure way to tell if it's mites or not? Would it help any if I give him a bath? Anythign I can give him to help soothe itching till I can see the vet??
