Revolution to treat ear mites
Our cats have ear mites and we went to vet to clean their ears about 2 weeks ago. They also applied Revolution on them. They told us to come again in 3 weeks to buy another dose of Revolution.
I was suprised when I noticed the ear mites were back in 1 week and half from the time their ears were cleaned. I decided not to go to the vet again for cleaning because they are charging $40 CAD for one cat (we have 3 cats). I will go to my friend who does grooming for cleaning their ears.
We went to vet yesterday (2 weeks from first visit) and bought one dose of Revolution. My question is: should we apply it now or after 3 weeks since they got the first dose? Why they still have ear mites? Will they get rid of them? Do we have to buy more doses of Revolution? It's so expensive!!! And how do I apply it? The receptionist just said to put it on their back (neck).
Is there any cheaper medication available?
