Q: What is Revolution® (selamectin)?
Revolution is the first-ever FDA-approved, topically applied medication for cats that:
- Kills adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) and prevents flea eggs from hatching.
- Prevents heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis.
- Treats and controls ear mites (Otodectes cynotis).
- Treats and controls roundworms (Toxocara cati) and hookworms (Ancylostoma tubaeforme).
Q: How does Revolution® (selamectin) work?
Revolution enters the bloodstream through the skin. Concentrations of Revolution in the blood and tissues prevent heartworm disease and prevent and treat roundworm and hookworm infections. Revolution selectively redistributes from the blood to the skin and other tissues, where it provides protection against fleas, flea eggs, and ear mites.
