Product Information

Make sure your dog is flea and heartworm free with Revolution for Dogs 40.1-85 lbs. This preventative medication is used once a month to provide your dog with protection against fleas, sarcoptic mange mites, ticks, heartworms, and ear mites. Topical application is a hassle-free way to keep your dog safe and protected!

What is Revolution for Dogs? Revolution for Dogs is applied on your dog’s skin (topically) once a month. The medication is then absorbed into your dog’s bloodstream in order to protect him/her against canine heartworms and adult fleas. Revolution also prevents flea eggs from hatching for one month. Ear mites, sarcoptic mange mites, and American dog ticks are also effectively controlled and treated with this product too!

Formulated for: Dogs and puppies older than 6 weeks of age can receive Revolution safely as well as pregnant and nursing dogs as necessary.

How does this medication work? The active ingredient in Revolution is Selamectin which induces paralysis of the affected parasite’s nervous system. Revolution for Dogs is effective against the following bugs: immature canine heartworms (Dirofilaria immitis),adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis). ear mites (Otodectes cynotis), American dog tick infestations, and sarcoptic mange mites. This medication also prevents flea eggs from hatching for one month.

What results can I expect? Revolution kills heartworms in their immature stage preventing the adult heartworms from developing. Adult heartworms can cause illness in your dog. This medication also provides adequate protection against worms that your dog was exposed to in the preceding month. Often times, ear mites in dogs are killed with one treatment but follow-up treatments may also be necessary. Revolution can also effectively control and treat sarcoptic mange and American dog ticks. Fleas should generally be killed within 36 hours of application. Sometimes, fleas can linger for longer periods especially in dogs that were infested with fleas prior to treatment. Make sure you follow your veterinarian’s instructions regarding the use of Revolution.

What Form(s) does Revolution come in? Revolution for Dogs is a liquid which is applied on your dog’s skin (topically) each month. Each individual dose is based on your dog’s body weight. This medication is available in boxes containing 3, 6, or 12 monthly applications.

Generic Name: Selamectin (Common Drug Name)

Common Brand Name: Revolution (Pfizer Animal Health)

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. 2. Ensure that the tube is empty before discarding. Wait at least 2 or more hours after applying Revolution before bathing. 3. 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. 4. Given Revolution only to the individual dog for which it was prescribed for.

  • Kills adult fleas and canine heartworms in their immature stage.
  • One application prevents flea eggs from hatching for one month.
  • FDA approved and effective in the treatment and control of sarcoptic mange mites, American dog ticks, and ear mites.
  • Monthly dosing on the skin (topical medication) makes treatments easy and convenient.
  • Non-greasy liquid is quick-drying.
  • No pills are necessary to prevent problems in your dog!

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.

Possible Side Effects: Side effects from Revolution are rare but always possible. In coordination, 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.

Drug and Food Interactions: If your dog is already receiving an alternate heartworm medication, do not start Revolution unless your veterinarian instructs you to do so. If you are planning to switch to Revolution from another heartworm preventative, wait until the next dose of heartworm medication is due before initiating treatment. No significant drug or food interactions have been reported with Revolution but it is always important to tell your veterinarian about other medications, vitamins, supplements, and preventatives your pet is taking prior to starting this medication.

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.

    This is a great all in one product. Flea and heart worm prevention is pricey seperatly but together it's managable. One simple application and you've taken care of both for the month. It can get a little messy if you don't apply it directly to skin but other than that, A Great Product!

      Comments about Revolution for Dogs 40.1-85 lbs:

      I have used revolution on every dog i have owned. It have tried frontline and advantix and both seemed to wear out (we have lots of ticks in our area in Pennsylvania) and whenever I use Revolution consistently it works great. I have to assume it works on Heartworm as that has never been an issue in my current or in my last two dogs. Can't confirm, but that seems to be the case.

      The only issue with Revolution is the vet has to provide a prescription. While Pet360 did a great job communicating with me and my vet to get it, i was VERY frustrated with my vet as they required I take my dog back in before they would approve it. It seems to be a money grab by my vet vs necessary as my dog is very healthy. Oh well. And oh yea - it was about 20% cheaper on Pet360 than at my vet!

      Thanks pet360
