Flea and tick medication for pets is among the most effective and easy-to-use treatment for eliminating or preventing fleas and ticks from infesting your cat, dog, kitten, or puppy. Many topical treatments such as Frontline and Spot On are available over-the-counter and work immediately. Depending on the level of infestation, you can actually witness the fleas reacting to the medication and sometimes feel the fleas jumping off of your pet during the first few minutes after application. The topical medication absorbs into the animal's bloodstream through the skin and works quickly to paralyze fleas and ticks, preventing any further egg laying and killing them on the spot.

Revolution works by penetrating the skin and entering your pet's bloodstream. Concentrations of selamectin, the active ingredient, in the tissue and bloodstream prevent heartworm disease. Selamectin also redistributes into the skin from the bloodstream and kills adult fleas, American dog ticks, and ear mites, and prevents flea eggs from hatching. It is also an anthelmintic, which means it fights to expel parasitic worms. Parasites ingest the drug when they feed on the animal's blood. Revolution is safe for pregnant and lactating pets.
