Hi there,

Last week I noticed that Charlie had some mites again, he had these once before, anyway I took him and Molly to the vets and got them an injection each. I need to go back next week to get a 2nd jab, but I have noticed that their hasn't been any progress in the mites going!

How long does it normally take roughly?

Many thanks x

Hiya,
Generally after the second jab you should start noticing an improvement, the life cycle of mites is 21 days which is why they normally give a course of three injections, by the 2 nd injection the mites should be killed off and the third one prevents the eggs they`ve laid from hatching.

Hope this helps,
Su.x
