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.

how do you hold a cat to apply tick meds

Asked by: Diane knott
I recommend that you wrap the cat in a towel to hep control the claws and a second person to actually hold the cat while the first one applies the medication topically to the back of the neck, more towards the head so the cat is unable to reach it to lick it off. Doing this just before bedtime also allows the medication to spread properly and dry before anyone is tempted to pet the cat at the application site.

How long does it take to kill fleas

Ticks are difficult to kill, taking around 24 hours once the tick has bitten to die. Tick-borne diseases usually require a tick to be attached for 48 hours to transmit the disease.

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.

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).

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.

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.

I have 4 small dogs and 4 cats,all about the same size.  The cats are on revolution right now.  Could I also just give the small dogs Revolution for cats as well?  My concern is with fleas only.

Asked by: Royal
It would really depend on the weight of the cats and dog. A dog 5-10 pounds needs 30 mg of selamectin, while a cat 5-15 needs 45mg. But if your cat is 15.1-22 it needs 60mg and dogs 10.1-20 need 60mg. What I do is get the extra large dog 85 and up and dose it for my cats, using a 1mL syringe. A cat in the 5-15 range would get .38mL and a cat 15.1-22 would get .5, a dog in the 5-10 range would get .25mL and 10.1-20 would get .5mL.

Attempted to apply to my cat (10 lb. / 2 yo.), but her fur is so thick that I didn't get it down to her skin, mostly on her fur. Concerned that 1) she'll twist around and lick it off 2) that it's not going to have any effect. Should I reapply now, wait?

Asked by: Edward
Please do not reapply this medication unless directed to do so by your veterinarian. When the next dose is do I suggest having someone help you with parting the fur so you can apply the medication in the correct location. I have a cat and I find it very difficult to administer topical medication properly unless my wife helps. I have come to realize that this is a two person job. It is also very important to place this medication at a location of the body that cannot be reached by licking by the cat himself or by another pet in the household. If you need any more information about this medication please call your 1800PetMeds pharmacist.

Why would my veterinarian write a prescription for me to buy Revolution when they want to sell me their products like Frontline?

Asked by: Bambi Bambino
Revolution is both a heartworm prevention as well as medication to control fleas and ticks while Frontline is only to control fleas and ticks. If your vet wants you to use both, it may be because he/she not only wants your pet to have heartworm prevention, but may also be concerned about fleas and ticks that the Revolution may not be completely controlling.

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.

My dogs have had those 8 month collars on for about 3.5 months and I'm just not impressed with the flea control. How long do I have to wait after taking them off to use a product like Revolution??

Asked by: Teri6602
I recommend that you bathe your dogs after removing the collar and then waiting about 2 days before applying the Revolution.

So if my pet weighs 41 lbs now the 40-85 lb dose will mot be to much for her, she s 8 months old

Asked by: Lakebum
The 40-85 lb dose is what your dog should be on, especially since she will likely gain a little more weight over the next several months.

I gave my cat this for ear mites, do I keep giving him it monthly, or just one time?

Asked by: djdj65
Since ear mites are so easy for your cat to get, I would recommend you keep using the Revolution monthly. As an added benefit, it will also prevent heartworms, deworm for intestinal parasites and control fleas on your cat.

I have 4 small dogs and 4 cats,all about the same size.  The cats are on revolution right now.  Could I also just give the small dogs Revolution for cats as well?  My concern is with fleas only.

Asked by: Royal
It would really depend on the weight of the cats and dog. A dog 5-10 pounds needs 30 mg of selamectin, while a cat 5-15 needs 45mg. But if your cat is 15.1-22 it needs 60mg and dogs 10.1-20 need 60mg. What I do is get the extra large dog 85 and up and dose it for my cats, using a 1mL syringe. A cat in the 5-15 range would get .38mL and a cat 15.1-22 would get .5, a dog in the 5-10 range would get .25mL and 10.1-20 would get .5mL.

My dogs weight varies between 19-22 pounds. Which weight should I get him ?

Asked by: Ariel B
It is generally advised to give the higher strength of heartworm prevention if your pet's weight is on the boarder or fluctuates between sizes. Please discuss with your vet, however generally the 20-40lb size would be advisable.

Attempted to apply to my cat (10 lb. / 2 yo.), but her fur is so thick that I didn't get it down to her skin, mostly on her fur. Concerned that 1) she'll twist around and lick it off 2) that it's not going to have any effect. Should I reapply now, wait?

Asked by: Edward
Please do not reapply this medication unless directed to do so by your veterinarian. When the next dose is do I suggest having someone help you with parting the fur so you can apply the medication in the correct location. I have a cat and I find it very difficult to administer topical medication properly unless my wife helps. I have come to realize that this is a two person job. It is also very important to place this medication at a location of the body that cannot be reached by licking by the cat himself or by another pet in the household. If you need any more information about this medication please call your 1800PetMeds pharmacist.

Are there any side effects or adverse reactions in dogs being treated with revolution?

Asked by: Sher
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.

Why would my veterinarian write a prescription for me to buy Revolution when they want to sell me their products like Frontline?

Asked by: Bambi Bambino
Revolution is both a heartworm prevention as well as medication to control fleas and ticks while Frontline is only to control fleas and ticks. If your vet wants you to use both, it may be because he/she not only wants your pet to have heartworm prevention, but may also be concerned about fleas and ticks that the Revolution may not be completely controlling.
