Revolution for Dogs:Treat 5 Parasites with 1 Product
Revolution is a topical parasiticide that treats and prevents the infestation of fleas, ticks, heartworms, hookworms and roundworms. Since this product treats both endo and ectoparasites, one doesn’t need separate products to treat different parasites. It is also highly effective in treating ear mites and the mites that cause Sarcoptic mange. So, here is a brief insight into the different kinds of parasites that it treats and its mode of action which will help you understand the strength of this topical treatment as a parasiticide.
Revolution: A Preventative for Heartworms
Heartworms can be extremely fatal leading to heart failure and organ dysfunctions in pets. These parasites mature in the bloodstream of the animal and migrate to the lungs or heart. Since these parasites are noodle-like, they often coagulate and cause blockage in the valves.
Revolution: A Treatment for Mites
Revolution is a parasiticide and its efficacy also extends to mites. Ear mites are a great problem in pets and most of the Sarcoptic mange-causing mites burrow deep into the dog’s ears and lay eggs. Most of the mites prefer warm spots like armpits, stomach, hind, elbows and ear edges to lay eggs. They live up to 4-6 days and spread the infection. Dogs with infection may show symptoms like excessive itching and scratching, redness of the skin, scabs, hair loss, and red bumps. Revolution kills these mites when they come in contact with the skin by causing muscle spasms.
Revolution: A Treatment for Hookworms and Roundworms
Revolution is also a powerful treatment against two types of intestinal worms – hookworms and roundworms. These worms cause stomach upsets and deteriorates pet’s health by squeezing nutrition from the intestinal walls.
Revolution: For Fleas and Ticks
Revolution kills all the nasty fleas and ticks stopping their nefarious activities of infecting the pet and annoying them within hours. It hardly takes 12-24 hours for the pet to become parasite free. Additionally, its preventive action continues to safeguard the pet from further infestation for the rest of the month.
How Revolution Works To Kill 5 Parasites?
When a revolution is applied to the skin, the chemical seeps inside the bloodstream where it kills the circulating juvenile heartworms. As the chemical reaches the intestines through the circulatory system, it acts on the internal parasites by disrupting their nervous system which kills the parasites. The product then redistributes itself onto the skin and builds a layer of protection against external parasites. As and when fleas, ticks or ear mites try to feed on the pet, they ingest the chemical. Selamectin acts the same way on ectoparasites as well thereby killing them ultimately and freeing the pet of infestations within a couple of hours.
Are there any possible side effects of Revolution?
Revolution is a safe treatment for healthy dogs and it is only rarely that the product has side effects. Pets that are allergic to Selamectin or are otherwise unhealthy may, however, experience vomiting, diarrhea, muscle tremors or increased heart rate.
It is important that the product is administered as per the guidelines mentioned in directions of use to achieve full efficacy. Revolution is certainly a revolutionary product for pet parents that are bogged down by their furry’s constant sickness and have to resort to separate treatments for each illness. If your pet is also one amongst them, we would suggest you switch to Revolution. It is one of the best and most preferred parasitic treatments by vets.
