It would seem that my poodle loses his appetite after Revolution has been applied.Any thoughts on that and how long will it stay in his system?
I have an almost 5 year old male Australian silky terrior and have been using revolution spot on for the past few months. In this time i have noticed a steap decline in his health. Ie. Constant skin irritation, upset tummy, diarrhea, poor immune system (2 infections), tremours & sudden mood changes.. we've been to a couple of vets now and followed all directions precisely yet still my boy is noticeably uncomfortable. It wasn't until tonight when parousing the internet (again) searching for possible answers did I come across a site that listed ALL of the same symptoms as side effects of revolution!! Worse still in my case was the list of more susseptable breeds (small breeds especially & definitely silkys). How could i possibly have overlooked revolution to be the cause? More to the point, how could trained veterinarians not pick up on this AND continue to 'prescribe' such a thing to a pup that it very obviously does not agree with.
I have literally been poisoning my bestfriend with pesticides at the direction of "pet health professionals" and SO ARE YOU!! I have hurt him, honestly believing i was helping him!
I'm honestly distraught. Please beware
I was given a revolution sample from my vet for my puppy. Applied to 12 week 18.5 pound puppy 7 hours later the puppy started having diarrhea. Put puppy on chicken and rice for 3 days and tries to wein some of her regular dry kibble to the chicken and rice and started getting diarrhea again. Did anyone else have these side effects with this medicine? Any suggestions?
I have a maltese with Cushion Disease and the only medication she is using is Extreme Essential which is available at chemist used for humans as well. Can I use Revolution on her?
Anyone have medical problems with your dog such as kidney or liver failure?
My dogs was put on Revolution against cheyletiella mites. They received 3 doses in 5 weeks and I sprayed the house 3 times. We (humans) still have many bites almost all the time. What went wrong? How many months should pass before us and the house will be free from cheyletiella mites?
I have not dealt with mites before, just fleas. But sometimes just spraying the house doesn't entirely work. When my puppy had fleas, we wash almost every single item in the house that was machine washable with hot water, as well as spraying the house. And try giving them a bath with something that might kill the mites in the hair and let it lather for a few minutes before washing out. Try to search up some remedies. For me, combing my dog out before the bath until I did not see one flea, then washing him with Dawn soap and then his regular puppy shampoo, killed all the fleas and he is flea-less now. If you have more than one dog, that might also contribute to the mites transferring, so once you think you have gotten rid of the mites off of one dog, keep it away from the others until they do not have any mites on them or else they will keep transferring back to each other. And once the dogs are rid of the mites, get them out of the house right away for a few hours and spray everything down and wash everything before bringing them back in. If the house is infected, then they will just go right back onto your dog again. I'm not an expect, but that's what I would do. Hope this helps!
What product is safe to use with revolution to stop ticks? I am concerned about the paralysis tick in Australia.
It says Revolution is effective for American dog ticks, What about Western Blacklegged ticks??? I've been using revolution for a few months and found a tick that had been feeding on her for a couple days, had given the last treatment about 5 days prior!
does a puppy of 9 weeks old needs to be treated for fleas?
No, your puppy is too young. Please phone your vet and ask when you can start. It will be a free service the vet or his/her receptionist will provide. Good luck with your new family member. A pet is for life and deserves the best care, kindness and your loving attention every single day.
