Same ingredient as name brand, but less expensive. The Selarid packaging is easier to open (cut) and dispense, too. No ill effects and cat has no fleas, ticks, mites or worms. We have used this for six months.

Great product, great price!
We just adopted a new kitten and our vet recommended Revolution for ear mites, fleas, etc. I was very happy to find Selarid, with same ingredient as Revolution, at a much better price. It worked great on the kitten's ear mites, and so far no fleas etc.

Great for mites
I have been in rescue for 18 years. I have 4 vets. I don't like Revolution on cats unless I am dealing with bad mites. I buy the large dog dose and dose it out according to weight. Yes, my vet told me this secret years ago. Every rescue person buys large dog Advantage and Revolution for cats/kittens. Just let Revolution, for bad mites you MUST use this every 2 weeks, generally for 3-5 doses. If you are dealing with yeast on top of the mites (very common), and you are using yeast medicine, you will use less topical medicine. Is it a great dewormer? No but neither is Revolution. Reviews on here saying to doesn't get rid of tapeworms - it is NOT supposed to. Tapeworms are treated with a different medicine all together (go get some cestex or drontal). This is for roundworms, but you can buy strongid pretty inexpensively and use that (shelters, rescues and vets use strongid for roundworms). Is this great for fleas? Not as good as Advantage. If you have mites though this will help 100%, just have to treat every 2 weeks and no, one dose won't kill all the mites. Revolution requires several doses as well.

ANSWERS (1)
These tubes need to be cut open, so there is no question if it is open or not. The plastic is softer so it is easier to apply, too.

How does Selarid differ from Revelution?
ANSWERS (1)
They are the same - Selarmectin. The packaging is simpler for this one, and probably less money spent on advertising. It’s like a generic Human drug vs the name brand.

What is Selarid (Selamectin)?

Selarid is a topical parasiticide for dogs six weeks of age and older and cats eight weeks of age and older. For dogs, Selarid kills adult fleas and prevents flea eggs from hatching for one month and is indicated for the prevention and control of flea infestations (Ctenocephalides felis), prevention of heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis, and the treatment and control of ear mite (Otodectes cynotis) infestations. Selarid also is indicated for the treatment and control of sarcoptic mange (Sarcoptes scabiei) and for the control of tick infestations due to Dermacentor variabilis. For cats, Selarid kills adult fleas and prevents flea eggs from hatching for one month and is indicated for the prevention and control of flea infestations (Ctenocephalides felis), prevention of heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis, and the treatment and control of ear mite (Otodectes cynotis) infestations. Selarid is also indicated for the treatment and control of roundworm (Toxocara cati) and intestinal hookworm (Ancylostoma tubaeforme) infections in cats. Selarid requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs (6 weeks of age or older) and Cats (8 weeks of age or older)

Benefits:

  • Easy topical monthly application
  • Kills adult flea eggs and prevents flea eggs from hatching for one month
  • Treats and controls ear mite infestations
  • Prevents heartworm disease
  • Treats and controls sarcoptic mange in dogs
  • Treats and controls roundworm and intestinal hookworm infections in cats
  • Controls tick infestations due to Dermacentor variabilis (American Dog Tick)

How does Selarid work?

Selamectin, the active ingredient in Selarid, is a macrocyclic lactone compound. These compounds effectively prevent the development of adult heartworms when administered to dogs and cats within one month of exposure to infective (L3 ) Dirofilaria immitis larvae.

Cautions:

Do not massage Selarid into the skin. Do not apply when the coat is wet. Do not apply to broken skin -Selarid contains alcohol. Wash hands after use and wash off any product in contact with the skin immediately with soap and water. Flammable - keep away from heat, sparks, open flames or other sources of ignition. Selarid should not be used on sick, debilitated or underweight animals.

Brand Name:

Selarid (Norbrook)

Generic Name:

Selamectin

What is the most important thing I should know about Selarid?

Selarid requires a prescription from your veterinarian. It is for dogs 6 weeks of age or older and cats 8 weeks of age or older. Selarid kills adult fleas and prevents flea eggs from hatching. You may occasionally see a few fleas on dogs or cats treated with Selarid but more than 98% of adult fleas are killed within 36 hours. Immature stages of the flea called pupae may be present in your pet's environment (yard, flooring, carpet, bedding, etc.). These pupae are not killed by parasiticides (including Selarid) and as such may emerge as adult fleas. These adult fleas may hop onto your pet at any time. They must be exposed to Selarid on your dog or cat before being killed. It can take from 3-5 weeks (or longer depending on environmental conditions) for most fleas to complete their 4-stage life cycle (egg, larvae, pupae, and adult) and reach the adult stage before being seen on your pet. Due to the presence of immature flea stages in infested environments, it can take up to 2 to 3 monthly applications for Selarid to maximally control the infestation of fleas in the environment. Once the flea population is controlled you will be less likely to see fleas.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Selarid to my pet?

Your veterinarian is best suited to discuss and recommend appropriate medications for your dog or cat. It is important to discuss your pet's health history with your veterinarian so they can decide if Selarid is right for your animal.

How should Selarid be applied?

Administer topically once a month for protection against fleas and heartworm disease and treatment and control of hookworms, roundworms and ear mites. The recommended minimum dose is 2.7 mg selamectin per pound (6 mg/kg) of body weight.

What are the potential side effects of Selarid?

Like most medications, Selarid has some side effects. The most common is hair loss at the site of application with or without inflammation (redness, flaking) in cats. Other side effects reported in cats and dogs include vomiting, diarrhea with or without blood, anorexia (decreased appetite), lethargy (sluggishness), salivation, rapid breathing, pruritus (itching), urticaria (welts, hives), erythema (skin redness), ataxia (incoordination), fever and rare instances of death. There have also been rare reports of seizures in dogs. Stiff hair, clumping of hair, hair discoloration, or a slight powdery residue may be observed at the treatment site in some animals. These effects are temporary and do not affect the safety or effectiveness of the product.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Selarid?

If you forget to apply a monthly dose of Selarid, immediately apply Selarid, resume monthly applications, and notify your veterinarian.

What happens if I overdose my pet on Selarid?

Contact your veterinarian if you administer more than the prescribed amount of Selarid.

What should I avoid while giving Selarid to my pet?

You should avoid contact with application site when wet. You may hold or play with your pet any time after the area on which Selarid was applied is dry. Do not apply when the haircoat is wet. Bathing or shampooing your dog 2 or more hours after treatment will not reduce the effectiveness of Selarid against fleas or heartworm. Bathing or shampooing your cat 2 hours after treatment will not reduce the effectiveness of Selarid against fleas. Bathing or shampooing your cat 24 hours after treatment will not reduce the effectiveness of Selarid against heartworm.

What other drugs will affect Selarid?

In well-controlled clinical studies, selamectin solution was used safely in dogs and cats receiving other veterinary products such as vaccines, anthelmintics, antiparasitics, antibiotics, steroids, collars, shampoos and dips. Tell your veterinarian about all medications you have given your dog or cat in the past, and any medications that you are planning to use with Selarid. This should include other medications that you can get without a prescription. Your veterinarian may want to check that all of your dog's or cat's medicines can be given together.

Selarid Directions:

  • Remove the applicator from the outer pouch using scissors or fold along diagonal line to expose nick; tear back at nick.
  • Hold the applicator upright. Tap the narrow part of the applicator to ensure the contents remain within the main body of the applicator. Twist or snap back the tip.
  • Part the hair on the back of your pet at the base of the neck, in front of the shoulder blades, until the skin is visible.
  • Apply the tip of the Selarid applicator directly to the skin. Squeeze the applicator firmly 3-4 times in one spot until empty. Keep applicator compressed on the final squeeze to avoid drawing liquid back into applicator. Avoid contact between Selarid and your fingers.
  • While keeping applicator squeezed, drag it away from liquid and lift up to remove.
  • Ensure applicator is empty, then place in your normal household refuse for disposal.
  • The recommended minimum dose is 2.7 mg selamectin per pound (6 mg/kg) of body weight.
Tip:

Do not massage Selarid into the skin.

Took the ticks off too
I treated my barn cats with Selarid and it really cleaned them up nicely removing ticks as well as deworming them.

QUESTION
I would like to see how the application works. I always have trouble with the applicator of Revolution. You never know when it is open. Is this the same for this one?
ANSWERS (1)
These tubes need to be cut open, so there is no question if it is open or not. The plastic is softer so it is easier to apply, too.

QUESTION
How does Selarid differ from Revelution?
ANSWERS (1)
They are the same - Selarmectin. The packaging is simpler for this one, and probably less money spent on advertising. It’s like a generic Human drug vs the name brand.
