Product Information

Revolution for Dogs will keep your dog heartworm and flea free when you use it once a month. This medication also treats and controls ear mites, sarcoptic mange, and American dog tick infestations too!

What is Revolution for Dogs? Revolution for Dogs is a topical medication that you apply to your dog’s skin once a month in order to prevent canine heartworm disease and fleas. It also breaks the flea’s life cycle by preventing flea eggs from hatching. Ear mites, sarcoptic mange mites, and American dog ticks are also controlled and prevented with this medication.

Revolution for Dogs is formulated for: Dogs and puppies 6 weeks of age and older can receive Revolution safely. Pregnant and nursing dogs can also receive this medication as necessary.

What are the benefits of Revolution? Revolution for Dogs is administered on the skin and absorbed into the bloodstream to prevent fleas and heartworm disease so no pills are necessary. Once a month application is all that is needed for effective protection. Revolution is broad-spectrum providing protection against ear mites, sarcoptic mange mites, and American dog tick infestations in addition to adult fleas, flea eggs, and heartworm disease. This product is non-greasy and dries quickly.

How does Revolution work? Selamectin is the main ingredient that is responsible for Revolution’s effectiveness. Selamectin causes paralysis of the affected parasite by interfering with its nervous system. Revolution is absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream and is effective in killing canine heartworms (Dirofilaria immitis) in their immature stage and adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis). It also works to prevent flea eggs from hatching for one month. This medication also provides protection and treatment against sarcoptic mange mites, American dog ticks, and ear mites.

What results can I expect? Most fleas are killed within 36 hours after Revolution has been applied. If your dog is infested with fleas, it is more likely to observe some fleas after that period of time. Revolution should also kill immature heartworms that your dog or puppy was exposed to in the preceding month. One treatment of Revolution is often all it takes to kill ear mites but follow-up treatments may be necessary to solve the problem. Always follow your veterinarian’s instructions regarding the use of this medication.

What Form(s) does Revolution come in? Each dose of Revolution is individually packaged and is available in boxes of 3, 6, and 12. It is a topical liquid.

Dose and Administration: The dose of Revolution is typically based on your dog’s body weight but your veterinarian will dictate the dose and frequency of use for your individual dog. If you do not understand the directions given by your veterinarian, call him/her in order to ensure you are using it properly. Each individual dose contains the proper amount of medication for your dog. Do not split the contents of each vial. Make sure you are applying Revolution properly by following these instructions: 1. Hold each tube securely and press the cap down in order to break the seal. Make sure the tube is open. Part the hair at base of your dog’s neck until his/her skin can be visualized. Place the tube at the desired area and squeeze it 3 or 4 times in one spot until all of the liquid in the tube had been emptied. Ensure that the tube is empty before discarding. You can bathe your dog as necessary after applying Revolution but you should wait at least 2 or more hours after each treatment. 2. If you forget to give a dose, give it as soon as you remember. If more than one monthly dose of Revolution has been missed, contact your veterinarian for further directions before re-starting this medication.3. Revolution should only be given to the individual dog for which it was prescribed for.



Common Brand Name: Revolution (Pfizer Animal Health)

Generic Name: Selamectin (Common Drug Name)

Uses: Use Revolution for Dogs on a monthly basis for the prevention of canine heartworms (Dirofilaria immitis). This medication also kills adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) and prevents flea eggs from hatching for a period of one month. This medication also prevents and controls ear mites (Otodectes cynotis), American dog ticks, and sarcoptic mange.

Possible Side Effects: Side effects are rare but possible. Incoordination, trembling, and drooling are possible. Drooling and vomiting may occur if Revolution is accidentally given by mouth (orally). Temporary hair loss at the site of application may also occur. Call your veterinarian immediately should your dog display any unusual symptoms once Revolution has been applied.

Precautions: Heartworm testing is necessary before starting Revolution to ensure that your dog can take it safely. You should discuss the frequency of testing with your veterinarian. Do not use Revolution in sick, weak, or underweight animals. It also should not be used in puppies under 6 weeks. Make sure to tell your veterinarian if your dog has ever had a reaction to Selamectin or other heartworm/flea medications prior to starting Revolution. Always wash your hands thoroughly after applying Revolution to your dog.

Drug and Food Interactions: Do not apply Revolution if your dog is already receiving an alternate heartworm medication unless your veterinarian instructs you to. If you are planning to switch to Revolution from another heartworm preventative, try to initiate treatment when the next dose of heartworm medication is due. Although no significant drug or food interactions have been reported with this medication, always tell your veterinarian about other medications, vitamins, supplements, and preventatives your pet is taking prior to starting Revolution.

Storage: Store this medication at room temperature away from children and pets.

A prescription from your veterinarian is required to purchase Revolution.
