Treatment for sarcoptic mange in dogs
This once-a-month topical treatment (on-the-skin) is a
revolutionary idea in parasite elimination. It is effective as a heartworm
preventive, killing the immature form of the heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis).
It kills adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) and prevents flea eggs
from hatching for one month. It is also used for the treatment and control of
ear mites (Otodectes cynotis) and sarcoptic mange (Sarcoptes
scabiei). Revolution is also effective in controlling tick infestations due to
the American dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis).
Ingredients: The active
ingredient in Revolution is selamectin, which interferes with the parasite's
Use: Available in a
package of individual dose tubes. Revolution is fast, simple and easy to use and
because of the low-volume dosage size, the solution can be applied in one spot.

For dogs/puppies over 6 weeks of age and cats/kittens over 8
weeks of age. Safe to use in pregnant and nursing dogs.
the hair on the back of the pet at the base of the neck in front of the shoulder
blades. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the tube 3-4 times to
empty the entire contents on the skin. Do not massage into skin or apply to
broken skin. Do not apply when the hair coat is wet.
Heartworm Prevention: For the prevention of heartworm disease,
Revolution must be administered monthly, preferably on the same date each month.
If a dose is missed and over 30 days have gone by since the last dose, give
Revolution immediately and resume the monthly dosing schedule.
Revolution may be given year round or only during the mosquito
season. If given seasonally, the first dose must be given within 30 days of the
dog's first exposure to mosquitoes. The last dose must be given within 30 days
after the dog's last exposure to mosquitoes.
We recommend you test your pet for heartworm infection before
starting a preventive program.
Reminder stickers are included to place on your calendar for
each of the months following the date of the first dose.
