Product Information

Revolution for Dogs 20.1-40 lbs used once a month can keep your dog free of heartworms and fleas while working to treat and control sarcoptic mange, ear mites, and American dog tick infestations. This broad-spectrum preventative is a great option to keep your beloved canine friend protected from nasty bugs that have the potential to cause illness!

What is Revolution for Dogs? Revolution for Dogs is a medication that is not a pill. It is liquid that you apply to your dog’s skin once a month. This preventative medication prevents canine heartworm disease and fleas and is also effective in preventing flea eggs from hatching which causes an interruption in the flea’s life cycle. Sarcoptic mange mites, ear mites, and American dog ticks can also be controlled and treated with Revolution.

Revolution for Dogs 21-40 lbs is formulated for: dogs and puppies but he/she needs to be over 6 weeks of age in order to receive Revolution safely. Pregnant and nursing dogs can be given this medication as necessary.

What are the benefits of Revolution? The benefits of Revolution for Dogs are numerous. This medication is applied on the skin and absorbed into the bloodstream so oral preventatives are not necessary. This makes administration easier on you and your dog. You only need to apply Revolution to your dog’s skin once a month in order to prevent heartworm disease and fleas. Since Revolution is broad-spectrum, it also protects against ear mites, sarcoptic mange mites, and American dog tick infestations. This product dries quickly and is non-greasy so it is easy to use regularly.

How does Revolution work? Revolution works by causing paralysis of the affected parasite by interfering with nerve transmission. Selamectin is the active ingredient responsible for Revolution’s actions. This medication is absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream and works to kill canine heartworms (Dirofilaria immitis) in their immature stage and adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis). It is also effective in preventing flea eggs from hatching for one month. This medication is also useful in the treatment and prevention of sarcoptic mange mites, American dog ticks, and ear mites.

What results can I expect? Revolution is effective in killing canine heartworms in their immature stage that your dog or puppy was exposed to in the preceding month. Fleas are usually killed within 36 hours after Revolution has been applied but some fleas may still be present after that period of time especially in dogs that were already flea-infested prior to application. One treatment of Revolution is, often times, all that is necessary to kill ear mites but follow-up treatments may be necessary to eradicate them for good. Always follow your veterinarian’s instructions regarding the use of Revolution.

What Form(s) does Revolution come in? This medication is a topical liquid and each dose is wrapped individually. Revolution is available in boxes containing 3, 6, or 12 doses.

Common Brand Name: Revolution (Pfizer Animal Health)

Generic Name: Selamectin (Common Drug Name)

Uses: Revolution for Dogs should be applied to your dog’s skin on a monthly basis in order to prevent canine heartworm disease by killing heartworms (Dirofilaria immitis) in their immature stage. Revolution kills adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) and prevents flea eggs from hatching for a period of 30 days (one month). Since Revolution is broad-spectrum, it is also effective in preventing and treating ear mites (Otodectes cynotis), American dog ticks, and sarcoptic mange.

Storage: Revolution should be stored at room temperature away from children and pets.



Dose and Administration: Your veterinarian will determine the appropriate dose and frequency of Revolution for your dog but dosing is typically based on your dog’s body weight. Always follow your veterinarian’s instructions regarding the use of this medication. If you do not understand the directions given by your veterinarian, call him/her in order to ensure you are using Revolution properly. Each individual dose contains the proper amount of medication for your dog so do not split the contents of each vial. It is imperative that you apply Revolution properly in order to ensure that it is effective. For proper application: 1. Hold each tube containing the medication liquid securely and press the cap down in order to break the seal. Check to make the tube is open. Then, part the hair at base of your dog’s neck until you can see his/her skin. Place the tube at the desired area and squeeze out all of the liquid in until the tube has been emptied. Ensure that the tube is empty before discarding. Wait at least 2 or more hours after applying Revolution before bathing. 2. Give Revolution as soon as you remember if you happen to miss a dose. If more than one monthly dose of Revolution has been missed, you should call your veterinarian for further directions before re-starting this medication. 3. Given Revolution only to the individual dog for which it was prescribed for.

Possible Side Effects: Side effects from Revolution are rare but always possible. Incoordination, trembling, and drooling may occur. If Revolution is accidentally given orally (by mouth), drooling and vomiting can also occur. Temporary hair loss at the site of application is possible. If your dog displays any unusual symptoms after Revolution has been applied, call your veterinarian immediately.

Precautions: Heartworm testing is necessary before starting Revolution in order to make sure that your dog can safely tolerate it. Discuss the frequency of heartworm testing with your veterinarian. Revolution should not be used if your dog is sick, weak, or underweight. If your dog has reacted to Selamectin or other heartworm/flea medications, tell your veterinarian.

          Comments about Revolution for Dogs 21-40 lbs:

          I used Revolution when I used to live in Florida. It worked wonders then. When I moved to Indiana our new vet did not carry Revolution so I started using Sentinel. It seemed okay for a while until we had an outside cat adopt us and he had fleas. My dog got them and brought them inside to our indoor cats. I then proceeded to try Frontline, Sentinel, Vectra, Capstar, etc. None of them worked so I went online and began ordering Revolution that way. Almost immediately the fleas were gone. I have continued to order Revolution online ever since.... I couldn't be more pleased with this product!

                  Comments about Revolution for Dogs 21-40 lbs:

                  I have used Revolution for 6 years on both my three dogs (a JR,a Rat Terrier, and a little semi-pug) as well as on my fosters, many of whom come into my home with various skin "issues" including sarcoptic mange. Despite exposure to s.mange, none of my own dogs has ever gotten it and, used according to a vet's instructions, it clears up the mange without resorting to toxic baths. No fleas, no heartworm, no mange---Revolution does its job--and well. The only temporary effect on the dogs is that they seem to "taste" it immediately after application---but a treat generally clears up that. So far, no harmful effects on the dogs--and I am NOT a fan of such treatments.
