Default How long does the treatment take?

I took Prickles to the vets on 1/11/19 for extreme quill loss. She’s 3 years old and so I figured the cause is likely mites. No mites were found on the skin scrape but she was treated with revolution as a preventive measure. I’m wondering if anyone has dealt with this and how long it has taken to completely rid them of mites. She’s still losing anywhere from 7-15 quills a day. I have a second dosage with me, but I have to wait a month from her first dosage. She had super flakey skin, so I gave her a bath and put olive oil on her. We have a humidifier in the room as well.
Let me know how long it took with yours if you’ve experienced this. Or any feedback would be helpful 🙂

It can take a month or more for the quill loss to stop. The mites will have damage a lot of the quills that are still there so they'll will keep falling out for a bit. As long as you are seeing new quills come in then things are good.
