Default Revolution dosage

I went to the vet today regarding sudden quill loss. I don't think the vet was very informed about hedgies, so it makes me nervous. She gave me 2 syringes - one for now and one for 30 days from now. I've read to give one drop (Raven is a little over 400 grams), but there is definitely more than one drop in there, looks like a little less than .1 - So, I wasn't sure what to do. I also was worried about ringworm, but the vet didn't even seem to care about that. I think she was nervous because she didn't know how to treat hedgehogs.

It may be that the vet just wants to treat for mites first since it's so common & if that gets ruled out as the cause, then can check into other possibilities. Revolution is harder to overdose on to the point of causing any issues, so the dosage should be okay.

Thanks. I only put one drop on her yesterday. Maybe I'll go ahead and do another one or two. Plus, I read that you shouldn't bathe them with Revolution, but her poor skin looks so dry... If you have a recommendation for when to bathe, just let me know.

Wait at least a couple days after putting the medication on, to make sure it has time to work.
