Q & A
When will this product be back in stock??
Why does this product have to be vet approved. My veterinarian and a lot of them are not approving chewy anymore making owners wait weeks to pick up hand written prescription. It's very frustrating?

Does this product work the same as revolution flea medicine??
Selarid is a generic equivalent to Revolution. Meaning they are interchangeable and have the same active ingredient. The effects of both drugs will be the same. Both products have flea coverage and target the fleas and their eggs.Verified Answer
