Hello - I am Dr. Matt - I would be glad to help you with your question.
Yes, you can safely use Heartgard Plus and Revolution at the same time for Doogie. Revolution has a medication called selamectin in it, whereas Heartgard Plus has ivermectin and pyrantel. The ivermectin and selamectin are similar medications though do not have any negative interactions when used at the same time.
Revolution is an excellent treatment for Sarcoptic mange and Doogie's itching should improve within 2-3 days if he does have this type of mange. I would give him one dose every 2 weeks for two treatments to make sure the mites are completely gone.
Overall, Revolution and Heartgard Plus can be given safely together.
