What is the recommended waiting period before bathing my dog after applying Revolution?

Introduction: Revolution and its purpose

Revolution is a medication that is commonly used to treat and prevent a variety of parasites in dogs. This medication is a topical solution that is applied to the back of a dog’s neck, where it is absorbed into the skin and distributed throughout the body. Revolution is often used to prevent heartworm, fleas, ticks, and other parasites in dogs. It is important to follow the instructions for Revolution carefully to ensure that it is effective in protecting your dog.

How does Revolution work on dogs?

Revolution works by targeting the nervous system of parasites, including fleas, ticks, and heartworms. It contains an active ingredient called selamectin, which paralyzes and kills these parasites. Revolution is absorbed into the bloodstream through the skin, where it is distributed throughout the body to kill parasites that are present. It is important to apply Revolution correctly to ensure that the medication is effective in protecting your dog.

Why is it important to wait before bathing?

It is important to wait before bathing your dog after applying Revolution to ensure that the medication is effective. Bathing your dog too soon after applying Revolution can wash away the medication and reduce its effectiveness in preventing parasites. Revolution needs time to be absorbed into the skin and distributed throughout the body before it can start working. Waiting the recommended period of time before bathing your dog ensures that the medication has been fully absorbed and is working as intended.
