I just sent you a long response, but must have erased it by putting pressure on the wrong key. While I was disappointed in your earlier reply (you told me nothing I didn't know), I think I was asking you a question about what I could do to get rid of the bird mites on me, now that we have treated Maple with Selectamin and I have sharply reduced all insect populations in my house. I understand that you are a vet and will insist in having me get any advice about dealing with my personal infestation with a human doctor. The doctors I have spoken with seemed intriqued, but completly ignoran about bird mites. Both had been hearing about them a lot, but never had a "case". I don't want to be guinea pig wo must write out checks.
So I accept your answer because you answered the best way you could without helping a two legged patient. I was hoping you could tell me that Pfizer - or someone - had developed a human form of Selectamin, marketed under the name "Mitigation" or "Defleasance" - so I can share in Maple's relief.
If Pfizer hasn't seen the opportunity, a Chinese or Eastern European entrepreneur will realize the potential windfall in selling relief to bug mite infestation toi humans (based on the blogs, there is more demant than for Viaggra). If you tell me your email or how I can get in touch with you when I find "human Selectamin", I will do so.
That way you can easily give fiture Richards the answer they are desperately seeking about ridding bord mites fom their life without violating your veternary ethics.
Candi: "While the selectamin given Maple by your vet should do the trick, the medication is not approved for humans. However, if you consult your internist, I have heard that the same treatment is availble for human use under the brand name ......"
As explained above, I would like you to see this reply, but am accepting your earlier answer. My expectations were unrealistic.
