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 rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1797.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revolution keeps Chloe safe! We've been using Revolution since Chloe was a kitten and it does the job!. She loves to go out of doors in warmer weather and with Revolution, we feel she is protected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Fails I have been using Revolution for my Maltie, Tina, for 5 years. Never a flea or tick, also protects her from heart worm. The price and service at 1800PetMeds is the best.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from does not work I used revolution on my 2 yo cat for about 6 months and it didn't work. I took him to the vet and she said his flees were very very bad. I was giving him revolution on a monthly basis. The vet said she's seen a lot of cats that don't respond effectively to revolution. That being said, it seemed to work better (but not perfect) for my older cat. It's worth spending a bit more for a more effective med.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revolution doesn't stink like Advantage I was so glad to find Revolution years ago. With 5 cats their monthly application had the house smelling awful. Revolution has little or no smell and my vet said it's just as good as Advantage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all-in-one protection: Fleas & Heartworm! I have used this product on my 12 1/2 year-old Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso for years! It is so comprehensive - fights ticks, fleas, heartworm, and even ear mites! For the amount it costs and what it covers it really is a great deal! Plus my dog gets sick from over-the-counter flea treatments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great protection for cats and dogs. I've been using this product on my pets for 4 years now. I used Frontline before and I hated the way in made their skin crawl. This is not a issue with revolution.

Q&A

My cat vomited a roundworm and was taken to the vet immediately and given a liquid dewormer. I am supposed to give her another dose a week later. How soon after that do I start her on Revolution to prevent a recurrence?

Asked by: Sjvbub
You can start your cat on Revolution at any time, preferably sooner than later.

2 questions.... is cat and dog revolution the same aside from the weight requirements and does it treat tape worms?

Asked by: Courtney1234
The active ingredient is the same for both the dog and cat revolution. It is the amount that varies depending upon the species and the weight of the pet. Revolution does not treat tapeworms for either species.

Can I give revolution for cats to my dog?

Asked by: Dog person
It would depend upon the strength of the cat Revolution and the appropriate dose for the size of your dog. Besides the Puppy/Kitten size, only the cat Revolution for 15-22 pounds is equal to the dose in the 10-20 pound dog Revolution. Otherwise, the amount of the active ingredient is not appropriate.

I recently just discovered heartworms via my kittens feces and decided this medicine would be best! I'm just unsure as to how long my kitten needs to be on this in order to permwnratly get rid of the infection?

Asked by: Shane
Heartworms can not be detected in the feces as they live in the heart and the baby heartworms are in the bloodstream. The most common parasites that can be seen in the feces without a microscope to look for the parasite eggs are roundworms, which look like spagetti and often coil, or tapeworms, which look like flattish grains of rice and will slowly move by stretching and contracting. Revolution will deworm for roundworms but you may need to get additional medication from your vet to fully eliminate them. To deworm for tapeworms, you will need to get the proper medication from your vet.

can i use benadryl after useing the revolution is there any side effects?

Asked by: willow55
You can use Benedryl if there is an allergic reaction, but that is very rare. At most, there may be a minor irritation at the application site, but again, this is rare.

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).
