Hialeah Gardens, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/16/2014 -- Revolution for dogs kills adult fleas and prevents hatching of flea eggs (Ctenocephalides felis), prevents tick infestations (Dermacentor variabilis), prevents heartworm infections (Dirofilaria immitis), treats and controls ear mite (Otodectes cynotis) and mange infestations (Sarcoptes scabiei). Ticks mostly cause mild local irritation on the skin surrounding the attachment area. They are especially significant as transmitters of various blood borne diseases.
Fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) are non-flying parasitic insects feeding on blood of animals and humans. Within 1 day of their first meal on a new host, fleas lay eggs. During the next 2 to 3 weeks, the eggs will complete their life and develop into adults. They are visible by the naked eye, but very small and difficult to detect. Fleas are biting and chewing through the dog’s skin and causing discomfort. Animals are scratching and biting the affected areas of the skin, causing the visible irritation with redness, swelling and crusts.
Heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis) is a roundworm living in the lung arteries and the heart of the dog. Dirofilaria is transmitted through a mosquito bite. Once they enter the body, immature larvae go through the series of life stages, travelling from subcutaneous tissue through muscles and blood vessels to lung arteries and the right part of the heart. In heart chambers and lung arteries they achieve adult size, mate and complete their life cycle. The entire development lasts 6 months. Infected dogs usually show no symptoms until the worms have reached the heart and lung arteries. Early symptoms are coughing and exercise intolerance; gradually developing into weight loss, coughing of blood and heart failure.
Ear mites (Otodectes cynotis) are living in the ear canal of dogs and cats. Their movements cause irritation of ears and excessive production of ear wax. Infested dogs are shaking their head, scratching at ears, head and neck. The skin on those areas becomes red and covered with crusts.
Manges (Sarcoptes scabiei) are parasitic arachnids living in the skin and hair follicles of dogs. They dig through the skin and cause severe irritation and discomfort. Dogs are aggressively itching and scratching the affected areas, creating severe irritation with rash, crusts and hair loss.
How It Works:
The active ingredient of Revolution for dogs is selamectin, a very potent parasiticide and antihelmintic. Selamectin successfully fights internal and external parasites. Applied topically selamectin absorbs into the body through the skin and hair follicles. The active ingredients travel through the sebaceous glands and enter the bloodstream. That way it is spread throughout the body, inside and out. The existing parasites are killed when they feed on animal’s blood, and the new ones are killed as soon as they come in contact with the dog’s skin and fur. The protective effect of selamectin lasts for a month against heartworm, fleas, ticks, manges and ear mites.
Flea bites can often lead to severe skin infections and allergic reactions. Fleas can cause anemia in young animals. They often transmit tapeworms.Heartworm causes severe health issues such as pneumonia, abnormal clotting, heart arrhythmias and congestive heart failure.
Ear mite infestations usually cause mild health issues, but can cause hypersensitivity reactions with severe irritation. The scratching can lead to hematoma of the ear; skin and ear canal infections.
Manges can also lead to severe skin infections and allergic reactions:
Tick bites can cause allergic reactions and anemia, but their significance lies in the ability to transmit numerous viral, bacterial and parasitic diseases, such as babesiosis, Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis and many more.
Directions For Use:
Revolution is applied directly on the skin once a month. Holding the tube upright, use the cap to puncture the seal on the tube.
