Ok, ok - not you've got our attention. Give with the anecdotes. If
it works, selamectin would be a godsend, as it supposedly works
against fleas, heartworms, and earmites, (also ticks and sarcoptes
mites, which ferrets rarely get.)
I WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE TO HEAR FROM ANYONE ON THE LIST WHO IS OR HAS
USED THIS PRODUCT. Have you had any problems, and has it been
efficiacious? (This is what lists are for!)
With kindest regards,
