Subject: Re: Ivermectin + Revolution # 387
I do not recommend using Revolution in ferrets
I'm a veterinarian and I don't use it on my dogs or cats
Its actually supposed to be very safe, ect
BUT Why use extra drugs when you don't have too ?
like taking antibiotics for viral infections in my mind.
You should test for heartworms before using it - or ivermectin
even if used topically.
For a ferret you probably don't even have to kill off the whole worm
before you get serious problems.
for flea problems I recommend Advantage
for ear mites well they are hard to kill.
