DO NOT CONTINUE THE IVERMECTIN! It can be VERY dangerous to hedgies and has been linked to multiple sudden deaths! If you have to walk out, do NOT let your vet give the second injection!

Revolution is what you want, it's a topical and is MUCH safer. If your vet refuses to listen to you, I am NOT exaggerating, walk out and find a different vet. Some vets will adjust their care based off of new information and just don't know that ivermectin is so dangerous for hedgies. Some vets think that it's what they've used for every other small animal and they have degree and will shut you down.

Also, the severe quill loss with a mite infection tends to mean that the infection is pretty bad. On the other, ivermectin has induced quill loss before too. So get you vet to switch meds and keep monitoring your baby. Get better Thumbelina!

I think through the flutter already knows about the invermectin. Her hedgie is going in for the second treatment to receive revolution so I think her hedgie will be fine.

My bean also has quill loss due to mites currently. She just had her first revolution treatment. Her quill loss looks almost exactly the same. She has even quill loss throughout her body except a bald patch by her butt.

Beans momma: it's funny why you see thier little butts and it's bald I giggle a lot.. And yes I do know but the emergency vet I took her to didn't have the revolution. And this was before her vet. This vet she sees now loves revolution

Douala: she's fine she's had no bad effects that come with invermectin. She is getting the second treatment of the revolution. Dr. Anderson is a proud lover of it . She's ok I just wanna make sure cause her old owner kept her in shitty shape before I got her
