is Revolution used?
Just a spot once a month
in front of the shoulder blades is all you need for protection
against fleas, heartworm and other parasites. No pills. No
sticky sprays. No more hassling with multiple products.
Revolution is quick drying, nongreasy and waterfast, with
no unpleasant odor, so you can cuddle and play with your cat
or dog as soon as Revolution dries.
Special note for dog owners: Because Revolution is waterfast,
dogs can still do all the things they love to do around water
without sacrificing protection. Studies show it's effective
even if you bathe your dog two hours after applying.
How does Revolution work?
Once applied, Revolution enters the bloodstream through the
skin. Concentrations of Revolution in the blood and intestinal
tract prevent heartworm disease and treat gastrointestinal
parasites, respectively. Revolution selectively redistributes
from blood to sebaceous glands, which are found below the
skin's surface. Revolution's presence in the sebaceous glands
and in the skin is the reservoir of drug that provides protection
against fleas, flea eggs, ticks and mites.
What are the most common side effects?
Revolution is generally well-tolerated. In studies, less
than 1% of cats and dogs experienced digestive upset. Approximately
1% of cats experienced temporary hair loss at the application
site. Do not use in sick, weak, or underweight animals.
