The basic ingredient used in the preparation of Revolution for dogs is Selamectin, which is synthetic. Other important ingredients are:

  • Butylated Hydroxytoluene
  • Isopropyl Alcohol
  • Dipropylene Glycol Methyl Ether

How does it work?

Let’s discuss how it actually works. It is a topic application, which means that is it directly applied to the skin of your dog. First, you have to part the fur between the blades of your pet’s shoulders and then apply the whole content of the single dosage of the tube to the skin. It dries, then and gets absorbed. After that, it works by penetrating into the skin and entering into the bloodstream of your dog. Selamectin becomes active and begins to prevent the heartworm disease along with redistributing into the skin from the bloodstream and killing the adult fleas. It also prevents the flea eggs from hatching and fights to expel the parasitic worms, which means that this treatment is anthelmintic as well. The parasites ingest this drug as they feed on the blood of your animal. It directly goes to the system of parasite and replaces the amino acid, responsible for the release of chloride into in the bloodstream. In response, the chloride eventually enters to the nerve cells of parasite and cause paralysis or death.
