How does Revolution for Dogs work?
After you topically apply Revolution, it begins to work by entering the bloodstream through the skin. It then works to prevent parasitic worms and heartworm disease. Selamectin, the active ingredient, stays in the bloodstream and tissue of the dog, maintaining prevention. Selamectin kills adult fleas and American dog ticks, prevents hatching of flea eggs, and works to treat sarcoptic mange and ear mites.
The active ingredient in Revolution is selamectin, which interferes with the parasite's nervous system.
