What is Revolution?
This once-a-month topical (on-the-skin) treatment is truly a revolutionary idea in parasite protection. In Cats, Revolution protects against heartworm, roundworms, hookworms, fleas, and even ear mites when used as directed. In Dogs, Revolution protects against heartworm, fleas, American Dog ticks, ear mites, and Sarcoptic mange mites when used as directed.

Who is it for?
For dogs/puppies over 6 weeks of age and cats/kittens over 8 weeks of age. Safe to use on pregnant and nursing animals.

What are the benefits?

Heartworm preventive for dogs, cats, puppies or kittens
medication also can be used to treat and control roundworms and hookworms in cats
Also delivers flea control and prevention - and tick control in dogs

How does Revolution work?
Revolution is used in the prevention, control, and treatment of various parasite infections. The active ingredient is selamectin, which interferes with the parasite's nervous system. It is an effective heartworm preventive, killing the immature form of the heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis). It kills adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) and prevents flea eggs from hatching for one month. It is also used for the treatment and control of ear mites (Otodectes cynotis) and sarcoptic mange (Sarcoptes scabiei). Revolution is effective in controlling tick infestations due to the American dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis). In cats, Revolution also treats and controls roundworm and hookworm infections.

How is it given?
For the prevention of heartworm disease, Revolution must be applied monthly, preferably on the same date each month. Drs. Foster and Smith recommends (and our guarantee requires) that Revolution be used year round, although some veterinarians may recommend using it only during the mosquito season. If used seasonally, the first dose must be applied within 30 days of the pet's first exposure to mosquitoes. The last dose must be applied within 30 days after the pet's last exposure to mosquitoes.

To control fleas, apply the first dose one month prior to the expected start of the flea season.

Part the hair on the back of the pet at the base of the neck in front of the shoulder blades. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the tube 3-4 times to empty the entire contents on the skin. Do not massage into skin or apply to broken skin. Do not apply when the haircoat is wet.

What results can I expect?
Revolution will kill the immature heartworms the pet was exposed to in the preceding month. For ear mites and sarcoptic mange, most mites are killed with one treatment, although a second treatment a month later may be required; follow the advice of your veterinarian. To control ticks, the dosage may need to be changed from the heartworm dose of once a month; again follow your veterinarian's recommendations. Most fleas are killed within 36 hours of application. If the pet was already infested with fleas when Revolution was applied, you may see fleas after that period of time as the immature forms of the fleas in the environment hatch.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian while considering Revolution?

Notify your veterinarian of any other medications or supplements your pet is taking, and also if your pet has had any reactions to previous medications.

What should I do if I miss a dose?
If a dose is missed and over 30 days have gone by since the last dose, apply Revolution immediately and resume a monthly dosing schedule. Tell your veterinarian that a dose was missed.
