At La Terra Dios Ranch, we normally use “Revolution” a drug label by Pfizer. We highly recommend it since it is very safe and highly effective. We’ve been using it for more than six years. It is very safe and does not pose any adverse effects even if overdosed, though you shouldn’t do that. Its price usually varies from a vet to another, so you might want to shop for it.
The drug is in liquid form and administered once a month on the skin, between shoulder blades. I’d recommend to buy it in six pack. Don’t mistake it to be a treatment for heartworms only as it can also get rid of external parasites like fleas, ear mites, and ticks.
Most dog owners don’t know that ear mites result to about 70 to 90% of all ear infections. By getting rid of ear mites, you can keep ear infections at bay. The latter can be very costly to treat, ranging from $40 t0 $200.
Note that any medication for heartworms should be applied in mosquito seasons. However, fleas may be transmitted any time from another dog. By using Revolution every month, you shall have kept all flea and ear mite problems away from your dogs the whole year round.
While your dog is on Revolution, a flea has a lifespan of a couple of hours to live when they bite your buddy. That’s fantastic, isn’t it? At our grooming shop, we groom dogs suffering from flea infestation, and the owners come back thanking us for it.
