Revolution for Dogs Basics
Revolution for Dogs kills fleas, hookworms, roundworms, heartworms, and American dog ticks. It also treats sarcoptic mange. This medication is a topical solution that collects in the oils of the skin and in the hair follicles. From there, it is absorbed into the body and circulates through the blood stream. The main ingredient in Revolution is selamectin, which acts on parasites by interfering with the nervous system.
Revolution for Dogs requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
