My boys Bun and Buddy have been scratching themselves for a while. Recently, Bun has been a bit under the weather so I took him in for a full check-up. First thing the vets caught was the lice. They gave him a dose of revolution and told me to bring him in again in two weeks. I have three other piggies that need to be treated and it's going to cost me a fortune.

Does anyone know how I can get Revolution myself and what the dosage is?

Thanks!

If you're in the US, Revolution is by prescription only. You might be able to get it from someplace like PetShed, though. You want the kitten stuff.

You can get revolution yourself.

See this page on dosage calculations.

I often buy online from this site. You don't need prescription when buying from them.

The reason why you can get it from the PetShed is because they are Australian based and here revolution is available with no prescription. lissie out of curiosity how long does it normally take for an order from PetShed to arrive to you?

I don't remember. It's been a while. Probably 2 - 3 weeks.
