Revolution 11-20 lbs for Dogs (selamectin) is a safe, simple way to protect your dog from heartworms, fleas and other harmful parasites that transmit disease and cause infection. This topical flea treatment enters your dog’s bloodstream through the skin and redistributes from the blood to the skin, where it provides powerful protection against fleas, flea eggs, American dog tick, and mites. It entirely breaks the flea life cycle and prevents re-infestation of biting insects. Revolution is the first-ever FDA-approved, topically applied medication for dogs that also prevents heartworm disease. As pet owners, it’s our job to protect our pets and keep them safe and healthy. Revolution 11-20 lbs for Dogs is a promise to keep your dog healthy and happy. Contact your veterinarian at the first sign of parasites.
