How does Revolution Plus for Cats work?
Revolution Plus contains two active ingredients selamectin and sarolaner. Selamactin paralyzes and/or kills a wide range of invertebrate parasites through interference with their chloride channel conductance causing disruption of normal transmission. This inhibits the electrical activity of nerve cells in nematodes and muscle cells in arthropods leading to their paralysis and/or death. Sarolaner is an acaricide and insecticide. Sarolaner blocks GABA and glutumate gated chloride channels in the nervous system of insects and acarines thus resulting in increased nerve stimulation and death of the target parasite.
Active ingredient(s): Selamectin and Sarolaner
