We use Revolution for Dozer and Blossom. It was prescribed by our vet, and is the brand that they recommend in their office. When I asked if it was a good brand, and if it had a lot of side effects, she told me it was the brand she used on her own dogs, and she said it was safe and didn't have a lot of side effects. It is a topical Parasiticide for dogs and cats. The drug used in this brand is Selamectin. We administer the Revolution once a month from June 25th to November 25th. The dose is by weight, and is administered by a vial that we break open, and place in between the shoulder blades. Revolution treats and controls fleas, ticks, ear mites, sarcoptic mange mites, and for prevention of Heartworm disease. It also treats and controls roundworm, and tick infestations. The insert that is in the box has a Caution, that is to be used on dogs and cats 6 months of age or older, and that they should be tested for Heartworm before starting medication. It should also be used cautiously with sick, or underweight animals. The Animal Safety clause says that Revolution has been tested with No adverse reactions in dogs of over 100 different pure and mixed breeds, and in pregnant and lactating females, breeding males, and females, and puppies 6 months and older. Revolution was administered at 10 times the recommended dose, and No adverse effects were noted. We have given this to our guys for the past two years, and they have never had a reaction of any kind, no illness, no lethargy, or diarrhea after we gave them their treatment.
This is how Revolution comes, the Teal box is Blossoms, and the red box is Dozers, as the dose is done by weight.
