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.
