What is Revolution?

Revolution is a safe and simple monthly topical medication used to protect your dog or cat from heartworms, fleas, and ear mites. 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. Revolution 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 does Revolution work?

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 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 Revolution 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 of Revolution?

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

What happens if I overdose my pet on Revolution?

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.

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.
Tip:

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

Revolution is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1815.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revolution I have 2 dogs in Puerto Rico and I have tried many flea and tick repellants. Revolution is the only repellant that works to keep them free of fleas and ticks. My vet recommended Revolution and I am very happy that he did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sarcoptic mites My 2 dogs got sarcoptic mites from a red fox that has been hanging around in our yard. The past few months have been an experience to say the least. Since I am using Revolution along with other meds from our Vet the issue seems to be decreasing. I found Revolution information on the internet vs my Vets office (Sigh) and I am so glad I investigated on my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best buy for the money I have had my two dogs on this medication for over five years, because they have allergies to the other topical application of flea medicine and they also get the benefits of heart worm medicine as well.

I have a 3 year old mix and he never goes out except when I do on the front porch. He doesn't roam I use a leash. I use the advantages 11 flea control and after 2 weeks he had some again. What would you recommend?

Asked by: Sammy Cat
This medication does not kill fleas, but it helps protect your dog from fleas. One medication that we have that does protect from fleas is Nexgard. Consult with your veterinarian to get a prescription.

How often would you need to use this on an indoor cat

Asked by: Esiram
It is recommended to be used once every month whether the cat goes outdoors or stays inside. Studies have shown that more indoor cats have contracted heartworms than outdoor cats. It is theorized because the indoor cats are more sedentary and easier for the mosquito to bite.

Does this protect against ticks on cats as well as dogs??

Asked by: Amber
The label says that this product protects against ticks in dogs, but not for cats.

Why is this medicine so expensive? $45 every three months feels like a lot. I want to protect my cat without using harmful products, but I need an affordable option.

Asked by: Precontaine
$15 a month to protect your cat against heartworm disease, control intestinal parasites and ear mites, as well as control fleas in one easy monthly topical treatment really isn't that expensive. You could use separate products to do all that but the combined cost would be more. The manufacturer does provide a special through your veterinarian where you can either buy 6 doses and get 2 free or buy 9 doses and get 3 free, but you must purchase the product from your veterinarian, not through an on-line pharmacy. Your veterinarian must also participate in that program.

I just used Revolution for the first time last evening on my new kitten. How soon should I see results against ear mites? He has no fleas and want to keep it that way. 

Asked by: Donna
Hello Donna, Revolution is given once a month and the dosing is weight based. If given correctly, it should begin working on your kitten within the 1st day of use. Hope this helps.

What are the side effects of reveloution d for cats

Asked by: gray facie
Side effects are generally uncommon, as this medication is well tolerated. So possible side effects would be hair loss at site of application, loss of appetite, drowsiness, vomiting, diarrhea, or muscle tremors. If you see any of this in your pet or anything unusual, contact your Veterinarian right away and discontinue use.
