Revolution Heartworm & Flea Pet Medication- 1800PetMeds
Your veterinarian conducts an annual blood test on your dog before prescribing Revolution, even if your dog has been on the product year-round. That's to ensure there is no evidence of heartworm infestation. As a broad-spectrum parasite control medication, Revolution doesn't kill off heartworm larvae as efficiently as ivermectin, the primary ingredient in heartworm-only preventives. While Revolution for cats does kill feline hookworms and roundworms, the veterinary label does not indicate that it kills these parasites in dogs. Ask your veterinarian for an appropriate medication to eradicate canine worm infestations.

(ex: a 3 Pack will equal 3 doses which lasts 3 months) Revolution enters the lipid layer of the skin as well as the blood stream of your pet. Fleas do not need to bite your pet to be affected by the medication but ticks do. Revolution can be a very effective method for flea control but is not recommended as the only method of tick control for dogs. Cats are not able to contract Lyme disease and River Road Veterinary Clinic does not carry any tick repellants for cats, so Revolution is a good choice as an “all-in-one” topical medication for your cats. Keep in mind, however, that ticks do need to bite your animal to be affected by the selamectin, but should be killed before they are able to transmit disease. Unfortunately, Revolution is not labeled for protection against the deer tick. The Scalibor collar makes a great choice for additional tick protection in combination with topical Revolution.
