Subject: Query re Revolution dose

I have been told by my (ferret knowledgeable) vet that
I should use a tube of Large Dog Revolution for my

He said to give my smaller ferrets 8 drops each, and
the large ferrets 10 drops each, so I've been counting
the drops into a spoon then using a syringe to suck it
up and then squirt onto their necks.

I must say it works out really cheaply, as one tube
covers my 6 with stuff left over.

Do any vets think that it would harm the ferrets to
use the Dog Revolution rather than the Cat one?
