    I did find a couple references that it can be used on a rat but not sure about squirrels? I would be cautious, some of this stuff can be pretty dangerous to a little fellow like Kazee. I hope someone here can comment of possible dosing amounts, I would imagine that it would be a VERY small dose. I know that generally, people here prefer kitten Revolution (and a lesser number of people here like the 1.87% Ivermectin paste which is also very inexpensive and can be purchased at a feed store for about $5). If you get any of these, dose amount is REALLY important. Too much Ivermectin for example can be fatal! Let us know if you need dosing help!

    How is Kazee doing?

    I've read some terrible things about Adams. All kinds of nasty reactions including death in many animals. My parents used it for their outside cat without any problems, but I know for ferrets and rabbits it's not recommended at all due to the high number of deaths.

    Personally, I try to stay away from the stuff totally
