Mice/Revolution for mites.


  I truly appreciated the guidance you offered "Ray"/ Rachel regarding the treatment of mites on her mouse.  I was desperately seeking help and after a single droplet of Revolution, and of course repeated sanitizing of aquarium an contents, "Squirt", my dear little brownie improved.

My question is with what frequency may I apply Revolution?

Thank you so much for the informative responses!



Dear Pat,

Normally Revolution only needs to be applied once a month- if at all. You can apply it a second time after two weeks if you feel there are still mites. There is no reason to continue treatment unless the mouse is exposed to a regular source of mites or other external parasites. It can just be used as needed.

I'm glad Squirt is better. If she has any more problems, don't hesitate to write.

I can answer questions about raising mice and caring for them as pets, with knowledge from my 38 years of having fancy mice as pets. I have NO MEDICAL TRAINING and you should take a sick mouse to the vet; but if you simply can't, I will try to help you. I LOVE PHOTOS!!! I ALSO LOVE UPDATES! Let me know how the little tyke is doing later on, for better or worse, especially orphans. It also helps me to help the next person.

I have had mice for 40 years (since I was 5!). I raised them when I was a child but now I keep all females, and never fewer than three so that if one dies the others are not devastated, because they have each other.
