How to Apply Revolution to Your Guinea Pig

Bitsy receives her second topical application of Revolution (Selamectin) for guinea pig mites. As usual, she was her patient and cute self, always the tolerant guinea pig.

Hammy, Feebee, and Buttercup received their doses off camera 🙂

The Happy Cavies have been itching less and smiling more. They will receive their last mite treatment on April 24.


You say you want (a) Revolution…

    I am a foster mom for guinea pigs here in Colorado – and mites is a real problem! I have a 3 week old that is clearly uncomfortable, and I wish there was more I could do. She was drowsy after I applied the revolution, do you find that in your cavys? Also – I can’t find how to follow your blog! I just started my own foster mom blog, so I am new to all of this. Love your site.

  • I’m sorry to hear about your little piggie 🙁 We hope they gets better soon!
    We haven’t noticed any drowsiness but are all around adult weight – you may want to check with your vet to see if this is a side effect.

    hi! One of my cavies has mites and I’m buying revolution for him, I just don’t know where to get it? and should I get the one for cats or for dogs? please help me

  • It is best to go to your vet to be sure that it is appropriately dosed for your guinea pig. Not sure if you can get it outside of the vet’s office, though.

    Hi, can I know if the revolution not yet finish(cause guinea pig use very less) can it be keep for next time?
    Or it have expired? Thanks…

  • This is a great question for your vet, since we’ve never had any left over. Happy to hear Revolution worked for you!

  • pam

    why is my sons piggie shaking his head could it be ear mites?

  • Hi, Pam,
    It could very well be the beginning of ear mites, or an ear infection. Please schedule an appointment with your local small animal vet immediately, this could develop into a serious problem. Good luck! 😀

  • Stuff

    One of my piggies has a runny eye. Should I be worried?
