How does Revolution for Cats work?
After topically applying Revolution to your cat, it begins to enter the bloodstream through the skin, going to work at preventing parasitic worms and heartworm disease. Selamectin, the active ingredient, is then present in the bloodstream and tissue of the cat. Selamectin effectively kills adult fleas and American dog ticks, prevents hatching of flea eggs, and works to treat sarcoptic mange and ear mites.
Active ingredient(s): Selamectin
