Using Revolution for Dogs and Revolution for Cats

Fleas, ticks, and heartworm. What do they all have in common? Aside from being gross and dangerous to pets, they're also all preventable -- and Revolution for Dogs and Cats protects pets against all of these parasites.

When it comes to protecting our pets, we want to have the product that covers them from head to toe, from all the nasty parasites in our area. If you and your pets live in one of the many places in the US where fleas, ear mites, ticks, and heartworms are a problem, then Revolution for Dogs or Revolution for Cats could be your answer. These medications protect against all these pests, and they even protect against other internal parasites like roundworm and hookworm, too!

Using Revolution for Dogs

Revolution is a topical medication, or "spot-on," given to dogs once a month, and is for use year round. To administer Revolution, part the hair between your dog’s shoulder blades and apply the contents of the medication tube to their skin. Revolution is sold in different packages that are meant for dogs of different weight.

What About Revolution for Cats?

Cats can also get the complete protection of Revolution. Like Revolution for Dogs, it's a once-a-month topical application. Revolution comes in tubes that are a single dosage and that double as the applicator -- simply squeeze the medication onto your cat's back between the shoulder blades. Be careful to get the medicine onto your pet's skin, and not simply their fur.

What Are the Revolution Ingredients?

Revolution contains the medicine selamactin, which is a semi-synthetic antiparasitic agent, which means it interferes with the nervous system of insects and worms, and causes them to die.
