A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Revolution is a dog and cat flea and tick treatment medication available by prescription, but it is also a multi-spectrum parasiticide that can control parasitic worms and mites too. It only needs to be applied topically on the pet once a month, and the active ingredient in Revolution (Selamectin) works by creating an electrolyte balance in the nerves and muscle cell of parasites, causing paralysis and eventually death. It is best to apply this solution once a month at the same time each month. Buy Revolution for dogs from Canada and Canpharm and get the best price on it.
Dosage strengths and guidelines are based on weight and may vary based on the specific treatment / prevention aim as discussed with your veterinarian. You should always administer this medication exactly as shown in your prescription.

Is Revolution really safe for cats?

What if my cats lick off Revolution?
It is made very clear to pet owners that Revolution is to be applied topically at the base of the neck in between the shoulder blades. The reason for this is that a cat is physically unable to reach that part of their body and lick it, so if you apply Revolution properly there is not a chance your cat will be able to lick off the medication.
Can I buy Revolution over the counter?
No, you will need to have a veterinarian’s prescription in order to buy this medication from a pharmacy.
