Product Information

Revolution works to prevent heartworm disease and fleas in puppies as young as 6 weeks of age and kittens as young as 8 weeks of age. It is also effective in the treatment and control of ear mites (Otodectes cynotis) in puppies and kittens, roundworms (Toxocara cati) and hookworms (Ancylostoma tubaeforme) in kittens , sarcoptic mange in puppies, and American dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis) infestations in puppies.

What is Revolution for Puppies/Kittens? Revolution is a topical medication that helps to prevent heartworms and fleas in puppies and kittens. In addition, this medication treats and controls ear mites in both species. In kittens, this preventative medication can treat and control roundworms and hookworms which are common intestinal parasites. Sarcoptic mange and American dog ticks are controlled and prevented in puppies that receive this medication.

Revolution for Puppies/Kittens is formulated for: puppies who are over 6 weeks and kittens who are over 8 weeks.

What are the benefits of Revolution? Revolution is a medication that is made to be applied to the skin so there is no need to give your small puppy/kitten a pill in order to protect him/her from heartworm disease, fleas, and ear mites. Revolution also helps control/treat hookworms and roundworms in kittens and sarcoptic mange and American dog tick infestations in puppies. It only takes one treatment a month to keep your 4-legged friend safe so application is convenient. It is FDA approved, safe, and effective for puppies as young as 6 weeks or age and kittens as young as 8 weeks of age.

How does Revolution work? Selamectin is the active ingredient in Revolution that causes an interference in the affected parasite’s nervous system. This causes paralysis of the parasite. Revolution works to kill the immature stage of canine and feline heartworms (Dirofilaria immitis) which prevents adult heartworms from developing. Revolution also kills adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) and prevents flea eggs from hatching for one month in puppies and kittens. Ear mites (Otodectes cynotis) in puppies and kittens can also be treated and controlled with this product. Roundworm and hookworm infections are effectively controlled and treated in kittens as well as sarcoptic mange and American dog tick infestations in puppies.

What results can I expect? Revolution should kill immature heartworms that your puppy/kitten was exposed to in the preceding month. Ear mites (Otodectes cynotis) are killed with one treatment most of the time although a second treatment a month later may be necessary. Roundworms (Toxocara cati) and hookworms (Ancylostoma tubaeforme) should be killed and effectively controlled in kittens if Revolution is applied properly. Revolution protects and treats sarcoptic mange in puppies. American dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis) infestations in puppies are also prevented with Revolution. Your veterinarian will tell you how Revolution should be used in your kitten/puppy so follow his/her instructions. Fleas are generally killed within 36 hours of application. If the pet was already infested with fleas when Revolution was applied, it is possible that some fleas may still be present after that period of time.

What Form(s) does Revolution come in? Revolution comes in individual tubes based on your pet’s body weight. It is a liquid that is made to be used only on the skin (topically) use only. You can purchase Revolution in boxes containing a 3-month supply of medication.

Common Brand Name: Revolution (Pfizer Animal Health)

Generic Name: Selamectin (Common Drug Name)


Dose and Administration: The dose of Revolution is based on your pet’s body weight. Follow your veterinarian’s instructions regarding topical application of this medication. If you do not understand the directions, ask your veterinarian to explain them to you. Revolution is available as individual doses packed into boxes of 3, 6, and 12. Each tube contains the specific amount of medication for your pet. Do not split the contents of each vial. In order to apply Revolution correctly: Hold each tube upright and press cap down until the cap punctures the top of the tube containing the medication. Part the hair at base of your pet’s neck and place the tube on the skin at the desired application site. Squeeze the tube 3 or 4 times in one spot until all contents have been emptied. Check to verify that all contents of the tube have been emptied before discarding. Bathing or shampooing should not affect the action of Revolution as long as you wait at least 2 hours after application. If you forget to give a dose of Revolution, give it as soon as you remember. If more than on dose of Revolution has been skipped, always check with your veterinarian before re-starting the medication. Do not split up doses of Revolution. This medication should only be given to the pet for which it has been prescribed for.

Possible Side Effects: Side effects from any medication are always possible but side effects after Revolution use are rare. Possible side effects can include incoordination, trembling, or drooling. Drooling and vomiting are also a possibility if this medication is accidentally given by mouth (orally). Hair loss at the site of application is also a possibility with this medication. If your pet develops any unusual symptoms after Revolution has been applied, contact your veterinarian immediately.

          Comments about Revolution for Puppies and Kittens 0-5 lbs:

          Revolution is easy to use; just apply to the skin on scruff of neck and the medicine is absorbed within several minutes. The great thing about Revolution is that it treats fleas, ear mites, 2 types of intestinal worms and heartworm; all in one medication. I adopted a couple of kittens from a shelter and they had fleas, ear mites and roundworms. Revolution treated it all.
