Let 𝕋 be a periodic time scale with period p such that 0,ti,T=mp𝕋,i=1,2,,n,m, and 0<ti<ti+1. Assume each ti is dense. Using Schaeffer's theorem, we show that the impulsive dynamic equation yΔ(t)=a(t)yσ(t)+f(t,y(t)),t𝕋,y(ti+)=y(ti)+I(ti,y(ti)),i=1,2,,n,y(0)=y(T), where y(ti±)=limtti±y(t), y(ti)=y(ti), and yΔ is the Δ-derivative on 𝕋, has a solution.
