Default Revolution

Took Bella to vet and vet thought she has mites. Vet gave her Revolution and when I got home, I couldn't get her to calm down so I put her in her cage and she went nuts and was running around bumping into things like she couldn't see, flinging herself on the floor of the cage and has now shoved her head in a corner! Called vet and she said she's used Revolution on hedgehogs before and never seen a reaction and to keep an eye on her. Out of my mind worrying!

Revolution is the most recommended for hedgehogs.
Unless she just doesn't like the smell (if there is one I've never needed it)
Or maybe its a reaction from going to the vet some act a little weird and unsettled after that.

I agree keep an eye on her, if she keeps doing it or gets worse it could just be a bad reaction she's got and hasnt happened with past hedgehogs she's dealt with.

ivermectin isnt recommended and can cause bad reactions though in the right dose I've known people use it on their hogs and cleared up mites with nothing bad happening so if she has reacted a bit weirdly to the revolution maybe talk this over with the vet.

I would have replied to the message you sent but I cant because of your settings.

I hope its nothing bad too give it a week or just over a week from the starting point of giving the revolution, if anything gets worse call the vet and if it gets worse before that call a vet, if still needing treatment at the week or just over is up and theres been no change give your vet a call.

Good lucky hope she's okay soon.
