Default Revolution not working?

Good day!

I recently took my hedgie last week for a check-up because I just recently got her, and we found out that she had mites. The vet immediately used Revolution to treat her mites. She used just a drop because dosage is measured by weight. However, it has been a week since that vet visit and my poor hedgehog is still scratching and still continuing to lose quills.

I don't know if I should wait or apply Revolution again (the vet made me take home the rest of the Revolution).

Please help

Hi, I'd follow the vets instructions. Normally doses are two weeks apart and can take 2 or 3 doses to complete the course and kill the remaining ones, since new eggs will hatch in between doses.

You could call your vet and just let them know she is still scratching etc and see what they say and re-confirm when to apply the second dose.

Hoping she recovers soon!
