    Default is this mange

    Peanut is missing the fur on his ears, on the sides of his face and on his testicles. He has not been scratching and it has been a gradual loss. The fur on the rest of his body is wonderful, nice and thick, including his tail. I will try to get pics.

    We really need to see a PIC....... due to the fact as stated above, it doesnt sound like the regular pattern mange generally takes. --maybe its winter molt or ear mites?

    Ok, fur grew back under the chin and ears...but not the testicles, and now he has lost fur in the groin area and it is is red (although not scaley) and noticed he is scratching in this area. So I am assuming mites. (He is also on the thinner side, even though he eats good). So, do I do revolution or ivermectin? Which is safer? I would die if anything happened to him! (Trying to get pics, but very hard to hold his legs open and get a pic!) He also has a bald spot where his tail and body meet (on the underside, not the top). Is this a typical mange pattern (I think he is beginning to thin in his 'armpits' too.) He also has lot one tiny spot on his head, above his eyes, right in the center, but it is not red there, it is a very small spot, smaller then the head of a pencil.

    Sounds like a drop of Revolution wouldn't hurt him any. I have used it on Sammy and all my cats with no ill effects from it at all.

    Do you get the revolution for kittens or does it matter?
