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 rated 4.5026 out of 5 by 1,699.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I really like Revolution. I feed a stray cat that had ear mites and had scratched himself raw behind the ears. Used it on him and in no time he quit scratching and the areas healed up!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not working My 2 cats have been on revolution regularly for 4 months now. in addition to this, I'm giving them a topical 2 weeks after treatments, treating my carpets weekly, and vacuuming daily. I just gave them another round of revolution 3 days ago and when I laid one cat down to inspect him, I pulled 3 large fleas and medium flea from his stomach in under 5 minutes. He is still utterly infested and I'm at my wits end! This product is doing almost nothing to keep the fleas away. These are 2 indoor cats - I simply cannot fathom why I am having this problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No allergic reaction! The pre-dosed meds come in tube with a enclosed puncture tool So perfect to release meds steady and slowly. My dog has had allergic reactions to flea and heart worm protection in one, but none with this affordable option!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great but dosing instructions poor 2.7 per pound! If at lower end of weight class do the math on how much to give. Gave whole tube it first and had vomiting every time, did the math and gave two thirds of the tube no problems

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much Better Than Advantage II With Advantage II, my cat would shake her head immediately after I applied it, making the oily substance sprinkle everywhere, and she would scratch and rub her neck on the carpet and edges of the couch, just desperately trying to rid herself of it (therefore losing most of it on furniture, rugs, etc). It would take several hours for the oil to finally dry up on her fur. I switched to Revolution and my cat accepted it calmly, while purring, and I was amazed at the 30-second drying time (because of its alcohol-based substance). Glad I made the switch, and so is my cat! I highly recommend this product to all pet owners. Yes, it does require a prescription from your pet's veterinarian, but is well worth it. Oh, and did I mention that it does a lot more than Advantage products? Takes care of a multitude of parasites, not just flea control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! We have used Revolution on both of our dogs for years. We tried the other brands, but getting one of the dogs to take a pill was always an adventure. Our vet recommended Revolution because this is what she used on her dogs. 2 dogs, five minutes, once a month and its done. The best thing is it really works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great protection! My 3 year old beagle/cardigan corgi mix did not do well on K9 Advantix, which was the only thing my vet's office stocked. She was always very lethargic and a little clumsy the days we put it on her. We have always used Revolution for the cats, so I decided to get some for the dog, too. No bad reactions at all-so we will continue to use it.

Q&A

If a cat has a small flea infestation, how long of a period of time after the application of Revolution until the fleas will not infect their surroundings?

Asked by: kim22
Revolution is very efficient in killing fleas. It should start killing and repelling fleas within 30 minutes and the majority of fleas are killed within 2 to 3 days.

After application some of Revolution ended up on my dog's fur. Is it still effective?

No matter how carefully I apply Revolution on my dog's skin, some of it (seems like a lot) ends up on his fur. Is it still effective? It is nearly impossible to put any liquid product on my dog's skin because his fur is really dense. What to do?
Asked by: Anna
The product is formulated to not only spread over the body due to the natural oils on the skin but to also travel down the hairs to the skin. As long as you did your best to part the hair and applied it so most of product has gotten close to the skin, your dog should be fine and fully protected.

How quickly Revolution kills cheyletiella mites? What to expect?

We have mild infestation on two dogs, but enough mites to bite us humans everyday. We are very hopeful about Revolution. Will Revolution work fast?
Asked by: Anna
If its a mild infestation it should take no longer than 2 weeks. Be diligent, wash their bedding, if it can't be washed put it in the dryer with a wet cloth for about a 1/2 hour, Wash were they sleep and any other clothing they came in contact with. I used Borax with my laundry which I think helps.

What size to order?

If my pet is "borderline" on weight, which size Revolution should I buy (referring to dogs).
Asked by: Anonymous
Ideally, you should use the size for the weight of the dog, but it may vary slightly for dogs that are so borderline that their weight goes over or under on a monthly basis by a few ounces, their environment or perhaps their age or medical condition. I suggest that you talk to your vet for his/her recommendation that best suits your dog.

SHOULD MY CAT STILL HAVE A VERY FOUL EAR ODOR AFTER REVOLUTION TREATMENT A WEEK AGO??????

TREATED MY CAT FOR EAR MITES ONE WEEK AGO AND SHE STILL HAS A VERY FOUL ODOR IN HER EAR. IT THE REVOLUTION WORKING?
Asked by: Anonymous
I am NOT a vet but a foul odor coming from the ears would likely mean an infection! ear mites will leave a blackish wax but not a foul odor. The mites would be dead at this point but the infection needs to be addressed.

Asked by: Felix
My cat has had no reaction at all after over 1 year of using this product. Your cat probably is allergic to one of the ingredients.
