Revolution Or Heartgard?

Both of these drugs avermectins, however there are a few key contrasts between the two that you ought to know about. Beneath we have listed both the  pros and the cons of picking Revolution over Heartgard to help you settle on an educated choice:


  • Considered safer
  • Effective against insects (fleas, ticks etc.)
  •  Can be used in breeds with the MDR1 mutation (herding breeds are at a higher risk)


  • More expensive
  • Topical solutions can be uncomfortable
  • May not be as effective at preventing heartworm

We tend to prefer Revolution due to its safety, but would suggest Heartgard to owners when there is a serious risk of heartworm infection.

What Are The Possible Uses

Transformation is regularly utilized for treating/forestalling parasite diseases or bug infestations including:

  • Fleas
  • Heartworm
  • Ticks
  • Mites
  • Mange

In spite of the fact that Revolution can forestall heartworm disease, there is very little confirmation for the effectiveness of the pharmaceutical against existing contaminations. This is because of its inadequacy against grown-up heartworms. It might have the capacity to help contaminated pooches after some time when utilization of selamectin is proceeded, be that as it may we would encourage proprietors to examine the utilization of ivermectin or immiticide with their vet in these cases.

Possible Side Effects

Studies have shown that adverse effects are rare, however, during treatment the following may occur:

  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Tremors
  • Weight loss
  • Itching
  • Skin redness
  • Fatigue
  • Salivation
  • Rapid breathing

Very Rare

  • Seizures
  • Loss of co-ordination
