    Revolution and Possible Ear Mites?

    Thank you JBun. Although it’s been 3 weeks I haven’t noticed anything different in his behavior or physical appearance. I’ll just keep an eye on him and if I start to notice anything different I can always just phone my bunny savvy vet and go from there. For now the kitten is isolated in a...

    Revolution and Possible Ear Mites?

    I was told the kitten probably wouldn’t need more than 2 doses and that even the 1 dose might be enough (but just in case to give second dose anyways).the kitten is 15mg/Kg so it is lower, would it be ineffective? How would I know if Bentley has ear mites too?

    Revolution and Possible Ear Mites?

    We just adopted our foster kitten and yesterday I found out the kitten had ear mites. Bentley has been interacting with the kitten for about 3 weeks now before we found out. We got 3 doses of kitten revolution, should I give one dose to Bentley in case he does have it? He does scratch his ears...

    Paper based cat litter?

    Thanks everyone! I decided to just stick with the equine pine from tractor supply with carefresh on top. He’s been using that setup for years so might as well keep it the same.

    Jaw abscess - options?

    It was ivermectin! It comes in injectable as well, I used it once for my guinea pig when he had ear mites. But can't help you with the mites, I have no clue on dosing. Its so frustrating that so many things require a prescription :confused:

    I used this brand given by my vet and they worked quite well. they were the 3/4 inch lenth, not the 1 inch ones

    Jaw abscess - options?

    the smaller guage means bigger needle and if the 22g is not working then you can try 21g or 20g. The vet started me on 20g but it looked really big and thick so i opted to try the 22g and it seemed to work most of the time. Sometimes it would clog and I would have to change it but the 22g seemed...

    Jaw abscess - options?

    I used a 20 g to draw up the penicillin into the syringe and chnaged the needle to a 22g to inject. A 25g may be too thin for penicillin, since its so thick. you can also try rolling the syrnge with penicillin in your hands for a few minutes to help warm it up a bit. I know you can also dilute...

    Jaw abscess - options?

    I live in CT and I believe the law is that I can only get up to 10 needles without a prescription which my vet will not give me unfortunately, she was very insistant on the every 48 hours and so I was able to do them once a day for the past weeks is beacuse they gave me extras at our first...

    Jaw abscess - options?

    We were given baytril as well In the beginning. We gave it along with injections for about a week and since it didn’t do anything for us, vet told us to stop using it. My bun is 2.75 lbs and the dose given to us was 0.2ml for the concentration 300k units/ml so I’m not too sure sure what the...

    Jaw abscess - options?

    I know, it can be really frustrating to be with a vet who doesn’t listen nor care and just want money 😔 Keep us updated on how everything goes! I hope pepper gets better without the need of penicillin but if it comes down to it, hopefully penicillin does the trick. I know for my bun it...

    Jaw abscess - options?

    Like JBun said you can probably just buy penicillin procaine or procaine/benzathine online but seeing that you are located in CA you might be required to get a prescription unfortunately. If you do get it, injecting it subcutaneously is not super hard. It can be at first but after some...

    Possibly licked some penicillin residue?

    Thank you @JBun honestly you have helped me so much this past week! He’s been eating a lot of hay lately. Like more than he used to before he got the abscess so I’ll make sure to continue to encourage it.

    Possibly licked some penicillin residue?

    Have Bentley his injection today and I noticed that a tiny bit leaked out(did not see any white but did feel a tiny bit of wetness) I wiped it with my hands and quickly went to get a wet towel to wipe him off but when I came back he already started to lick. I quickly stopped him and clean him...
