Default Warning about Revolution

My hedgehog Marty developed symptoms of mites so I took him to my vet. She did a skin scraping, dosed him with Revolution (I double checked the dosage) and sent me home with a second dose.

Within 4 hours Marty was beside himself with discomfort, whimpering and jumping around his cage. I called the vet and she said he was having a reaction to the Revolution. I have been treating him with benadryl and oatmeal baths. It has been three days and he is still digging at himself a bit but is getting better.

So Revolution is not completely safe and buying it on-line and dosing your hedgie yourself may have unpleasant results for your little friend. Please consult your veterinarian before administering Revolution.

Definitely a good reminder! Thank you for sharing, and I hope poor Marty is feeling better soon.
