What is Revolution?

Revolution is a safe and simple monthly topical medication used to protect your pet from heartworms, fleas, and ear mites. It also protects dogs from ticks and sarcoptic mange and cats from roundworms and hookworms. Revolution for Dogs and Cats requires a prescription from your veterinarian. (3 Pack = 3 doses which lasts 3 months.)

For:

Dogs (6 weeks of age or older and no weight requirement), Cats (8 weeks of age or older and no weight requirement)

Benefits:
  • Protects your pet from heartworms and fleas
  • Fights both internal and surface parasitic infections
  • Treats Sarcoptic mange in dogs
  • Treats and controls ear mites
  • Controls American Dog Tick infestation
  • Treats and controls roundworms and hookworms in cats
  • Only administered once a month
  • Safe and easy to use
How it Works:

Revolution works by penetrating the skin and entering your pet's bloodstream. Concentrations of selamectin, the active ingredient, in the tissue and bloodstream prevent heartworm disease. Selamectin also redistributes into the skin from the bloodstream and kills adult fleas, American dog ticks, and ear mites, and prevents flea eggs from hatching. It is also an anthelmintic, which means it fights to expel parasitic worms. Parasites ingest the drug when they feed on the animal's blood. Revolution is safe for pregnant and lactating pets.

Cautions:

Side effects are uncommon, with less than 1% of dogs showing signs of digestive upsets. It is not advisable to use Revolution in pets that are ill or underweight. Collies and herding dog breeds may have a reaction to the ingredient selamectin if given over the recommended dosage amount. If your dog is a collie or other herding dog breed and your veterinarian has prescribed Revolution, we urge you to monitor your pet for 8 hours and call your vet if your dog displays any signs of weakness, staggering, dilated pupils, trembling, drooling, or pressing his or her head against a wall.

Brand Name:

Revolution (Zoetis)

Generic Name:

Selamectin (see-la-mek-tin)

What is the most important information I should know about Revolution:

Revolution is a prescription medication applied topically once a month. Do not use Revolution on puppies under 6 weeks of age or kittens under 8 weeks of age. According to the product literature, Revolution is safe for use on pregnant or lactating dogs and cats.

What is Revolution:

Revolution is a topical parasiticide applied once a month for the prevention of heartworm disease in dogs and cats. Revolution is also used on dogs for the treatment or prevention of fleas, the American Dog Tick, ear mites, and canine sarcoptic mange. When used on cats it is also used to treat or prevent fleas, ear mites, hookworms, and roundworms. It is recommended that heartworm prevention be used year-round. Revolution may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before applying Revolution on my pet:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to the medication.

How should this medication be used:

Apply Revolution exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Revolution is available as unit of use applicator tubes containing the specific amount of medication based on the weight of your pet. Revolution is available as a 15mg/0.25ml puppy/kitten dose for puppies older than 6 weeks and kittens older than 8 weeks weighing up to 5 lbs. Revolution is also available for cats 5.1-15 lbs (45mg/0.75ml), 15.1-22 lbs (60mg/1ml), and for dogs 5.1-10 lbs (30mg/0.25ml), dogs 10.1-20 lbs (60mg/0.5ml), 20.1-40 lbs (120mg/1 ml), 40-1-85 lbs (240mg/2 ml) and 85.1-130 lbs (360mg/3ml). For dogs over 130 lbs use the appropriate combination of tubes. The entire contents of the tube should be used. Do not split the contents as the accuracy of the dose and effectiveness of the medication cannot be assured. Bathing or shampooing your pet 2 or more hours after treatment will not reduce the effectiveness of Revolution. Keep this medication away from children and pets. 

What happens if I miss applying a dose:

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose the pet:

Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of overdose, while rare, may include salivation and lack of coordination, as well as symptoms listed below as side effects.

What should I avoid while using Revolution on my pet:

Because humans can contract hookworms from animals, it is important to maintain good personal hygiene. It is also important to eliminate fleas on your pet and in the household and to not feed your pet rodents or uncooked meat or fish. To prevent reinfection, daily cleanup of stools is recommended. Do not use on sick, weak, or underweight animals. Do not apply to wet hair. Dogs should be tested for heartworms prior to using Revolution. In humans, Revolution may be irritating to skin and eyes. Wash hands thoroughly after applying Revolution to your pet.

What are the possible side effects of Revolution:

Side effects of Revolution that may occur include temporary hair loss at the site of application, loss of appetite, drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, drowsiness, rapid breathing, increased heart rate, and muscle tremors.

What other drugs will affect Revolution:

Do not apply Revolution to your pet if already giving an alternate heartworm medication. When switching from another heartworm medication, begin Revolution when the next dose of the heartworm medication is due.

Where can I get more information:

Your pharmacist has additional information about Revolution written for health professionals that you may read.

How to Use
Directions:
  • Revolution is a prescription medication.
  • Apply Revolution once a month on the same day of each month year round.
  • Use the entire contents of the tube. Do not split the contents since the dose and therefore the effectiveness of the product can be reduced.
  • Part your pet's hair at the base of the neck between the shoulder blades until you can see the skin, and place the tip of the tube on the skin.
  • Apply the contents of the tube to a single spot on the skin at the base of the neck between the shoulder blades.

Revolution is quick drying. Your pet can be bathed 2 or more hours after applying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working Well ! Our poor cats were being bitten by fleas. Even worse, Brownie cat had flea-induced anemia. They have been indoor-only cats for many years, and no animals have visited our home. So how did our cats get fleas? Dermatologist for animals suggested that probably we carried in some fleas on our socks from our gardening. So now, with two cycles of Revolution on the cats, NO FLEAS! Brownie has no more anemia! Also, no adverse side effects. So we're good!

This is hands down the best product for cats! My cat has been using this for 10+ years. She will be 19 this year. If you love your babies this is the product to use.

Q&A

if my cat weighs 15 pounds, which Revolution flea dose should I get ? The one that ends with 15 lbs. or the last one that is 15-22 lbs.?

Asked by: emn306
You should use the 15-22 pound size as your cat may gain weight if it's anything like my kitties.

Why do vets usually scrap the back of the cats ear to test versus the problem areas of ferocious itching: scabs on neck, base of tail or along the spine? After two yrs. of saying its fleas & no prior reaction to flea drops & more scabs appear is not exce

Asked by: Rhonda
Your vet was probably checking for mange mites, most often found on the ears of cats. It sounds as if your cat may have an allergy, which could be to just about anything...food, plant pollen, etc. You may want to ask your vet to give an injection of corticosteroids (my vet favors Depo-Medrol) as well as an antibiotic (Convenia is usually a good choice as you don't have to give any pills).

My last question of what is the next step after applying Advantage (wrong name) My cat received Revolution not Advantage. Following week he is still ferociously biting the base of his tail area & around the neck & head? Never reacted as such when given b4

Asked by: Rhonda
My answer is still the same. Give the product some time to do it's job, be persistent and a little patient. If your cat is creating sore spots that can be infected, a vet visit may be n order. Scratching can be caused by other things besides fleas.

Received a supply of 6months revolution for my dog. Back on package states Made in S.Africa. Is your company in that country. Pkg. was mailed out from Singapore. 

Asked by: Barb
Product we sell here in Florida is distributed from Michigan. I would be cautious using that product as drug laws tend not to be as strict as here in the states. Yours is one reason why purchasing medication on-line is always risky.

Within one week of applying Advange, what is the next step being the cat persist in biting & scratching the base of the tail & scabs under the chin & neck. Next step other than scrapping or vet visit? I have 18 plus felines & cost is a major factor?

Asked by: Rhonda
Pets scratch from a flea bite that occurred awhile ago (is a delayed reaction) plus if you have a serious flea problem, it can take up to 3 months of proper dosing to get a good handle on the flea problem. Be patient, continue to use the Advantage, but if your cat continues to irritate it's skin, a trip to your vet may be in order.

Vet recommended revolution for mange. However it's not taking care of all ticks. Is there something else I can use with revolution to control the ticks. He is a collie mix. 

Asked by: Nancy123
You can use a tick collar, such as Preventic collar, a topical such as Frontline or a tablet such as Nexgard or Simparica.

How often do I use revolution on my cat

Asked by: Milo
This medication is generally used one time a month. There are some conditions however that would necessitate it being used more or less often if your veterinarian prescribes it that way. Since this is a prescription medication it would have to be prescribed by a veterinarian and the dose would then be decided on and written on the prescription.
