What Are The Benefits?
Revolution is topical so you don’t have to “Pill” your dog. It helps prevent heartworm disease and KILL fleas. Left untreated, heartworm disease can kill a dog and many pet owners don’t even realize their dog may be infected. Heartworm disease is preventable, and heartworm prevention in dogs is safe and easy to administer. Preventing heartworm infection is also far easier than treating it. Keep your dog on a heartworm preventive year-round.
It is important to realize that the fleas you see on your dog are only a small percentage of the entire flea population. Fleas lay eggs that fall off your dog into your home, particularly where your dog spends most of its time (such as in bedding). These eggs hatch into larvae, which spin cocoons and become pupae. The pupae develop further and emerge as adult fleas in response to animal activity.
Is There A Generic Available?
There is currently no generic substitute.
How Is It given?
Hold the tube upright. Firmly press the cap down until you hear a click (from the cap puncturing the seal on the tube).Remove the cap, and check to make sure the tip of the tube is open. Part your pet’s hair at the base of the neck in front of the shoulder blades until the skin is visible, and place the tip of the tube against the skin. Squeeze the tube 3 or 4 times to empty the entire contents onto the skin in one spot. Ensure that the tube is empty.
