Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over 15 of protection I have used revolution on my dogs for more than 15 years. I always have 4 to 5 dogs and I would not use any other product. We back country hike and must be concerned about mange as well as the other things that revolution protects against. We have never had a problem with this product and in all these years have never seen even one flea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Peasy!! I struggled for months on end to give my Baby her heartworm and flea & ticks meds every month... she won’t take pills no matter what yummy food I hide it in!! This Revolution medicine is the best!! Foolproof, and soooo easy to apply. So glad I switched!! Thank you 1800PetMeds!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service!! My two dogs needed Revolution. Another well known company lost my original prescriptions and it took 5 days before then replied. With PetMeds, there was a misunderstanding, but in the end they made everything right acting in a professional and courteous manner. They even expressed my order. This was my first order but definitely not my last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use. I have been using this product for 2 years and it seems to work as have never seen any fleas or ticks and Maggie Mae tolerates it well. She does not like taking any kind of pill even with cheese or peanut butter on it. Just wished the price was a little cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky Dog who wouldn't take tablets This is the perfect solution for a picky dog who won't take Braveto or Inteceptor. It covers everything those do in one monthly dose and my dog thankfully didn't have any of the concerning allergies to it. So happy I was told about this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No fleas My cat Digger has been on Revolution for many years now. He used to be mostly an outdoor cat but since we moved to Washington state his is more of an indoor kitty. I have always had great success with this product. It is the best one available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revolution for Cats The monthly application of Revolution to the nape of my cat's neck isn't too difficult. She's been on Revolution for 3 years and all her yearly vet appts are excellent in spite of her being an indoor/outdoor recovering feral adoptee. The cost is less than the vet doing it and less traumatizing to the cat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!!!! My Lyllie will NOT take a pill of any kind, no matter how I try and hide it, cheese, peanut butter, pill pocket, nothing she always finds it. So . . .

And it’s PERFECT, no fighting, no greasy mess, no stress and it did not disagree with her, love the product and if she could talk so does she!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT My Labrador mix, Diamond, has taken Revolution since she was 10 (human) weeks old when we adopted her from the pet shelter. She will be 14 (human) years old this November. We've NEVER had any fleas, ticks, no heartworms. Revolution is a bit on the pricey side but this one product takes care of most if not all parasites.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revolution is one of the best! We have used Revolution for cats all last summer for our new pets (four cats!) and have found it to not only be recommended by most Veterinarians, but to be highly effective against fleas and ear mites, both of which our kittens had and no longer have any more and were cured after the second dose. Living in a rural area, our cats spend quite a lot of time outdoors on a cattle farm and we have found Revolution to be highly effective against ticks as well. Have tried other brands and we wouldn't use anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flea-less for years! My indoor kitty started adventuring out 3 years ago. Almost immediately she got fleas. I asked for friends recommendations and most said Revolution. My Luna and my home have been flea free since we started.(after cleaning, combing and flea bombs) Revolution is not cheap but the effectiveness and the peace of mind is worth it. It works and my cat has never had an allergic reaction to it. I trust Revolution. It's the only flea medication I will put on my sweet little baby.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revolution is my final product After trying all the other brands, Revolution is my forever product. It was always torture to apply the other flea, tick, & heart worm meds to my cat, Sinatra. He would run crazy through the house for the 1st hour or so after then try to lick the area for days & days. NOT with Revolution. The beauty of the product is the small amount. By the time I finish placing it, he gets a little wiggly but then just relaxes. AND no licking. I have to also point out, ordering through this website was a breeze. No many DVMs carry it, PetSmart didn’t have it, & Sinatra’s vet was sold out. What a game changer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff! This is the second season that I have been using revolution on my 2 cats. They are house cats that spend a few hours outside when the weather is nice. We have a few partially wooded acres that they explore, and they like to hunt (and eat) the little critters they find. So glad I can count on revolution to keep my babies free of worms, ticks and fleas. Also, I absolutely love 1800petmeds. Great customer service!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revolution For My Little Dog I love that this topical application, includes heartworm protection, along with fleas, ticks and other worms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved our flea problem with an indoor cat! Our Maine Coon, Sergio, is an indoor cat, but loves to sit in the windows. We noticed flea dirt on him and he was scratching. Our vet recommended Revolution 10 months out of the year...we skip Jan/Feb. Problem solved! He hates getting it on his skin because it's cold, but he forgives us! And the savings on 1-800-PetMeds is great!

Questions

My puppy is 4 months and 7 pounds but she’ll grow to be 12-15 pounds. What weight should I choose for her?

Asked by: Mnl286
Our pharmacy recommends purchasing a single dose for dogs under 10 lbs until your furry baby is at her ideal weight range. Once your furry baby reaches her ideal weight, you can purchase the appropriate weight range (10.1 to 20 lbs) since we only sell the Revolution in quantities of 3, 6, and 12 packs.

Will it work if the dog already has heart worms

Asked by: Rudy t
Use of any heartworm prevention by dog that already has heartworms must be used with caution and under the direct supervision of your veterinarian. Heartworm prevention will not kill the adult worms but will prevent further infection. Eventually, the adult worms will die off, leaving your dog free of heartworms. However, there can be permanent damage to your dog's heart and lungs as a result of having had heartworms.

What is Revolution® (Selamectin)?

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

Revolution® (Selamectin) 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® (Selamectin) 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® (Selamectin) 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® (Selamectin), 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® (Selamectin) (Zoetis)

Generic Name:

Selamectin (see-la-mek-tin)

What is the most important information I should know about Revolution® (Selamectin)?

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

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before applying Revolution® (Selamectin) on my pet?

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

How should Revolution® (Selamectin) medication be used?

Apply Revolution® (Selamectin) exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Revolution® (Selamectin) is available as unit of use applicator tubes containing the specific amount of medication based on the weight of your pet. Revolution® (Selamectin) 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® (Selamectin) 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® (Selamectin). Keep this medication away from children and pets. 

What happens if I miss applying a dose of Revolution® (Selamectin)?

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® (Selamectin)?

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® (Selamectin) 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® (Selamectin). In humans, Revolution® (Selamectin) may be irritating to skin and eyes. Wash hands thoroughly after applying Revolution® (Selamectin) to your pet.

What are the possible side effects of Revolution® (Selamectin)?

Side effects of Revolution® (Selamectin) 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® (Selamectin)?

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

  • Revolution® (Selamectin) is a prescription medication.
  • Apply Revolution® (Selamectin) once a month on the same day of each month year round.

How does Revolution® (Selamectin) work?

Revolution® (Selamectin) 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® (Selamectin) 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® (Selamectin) 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® (Selamectin), 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.
