You've done just what you should have done. Thankfully, we know that cats will inevitably ingest some of the selamectin (Revolution). Salivation and vomiting may arise if too much is ingested but serious adverse effects aren't expected until cats are exposed to 10X the recommended dose. True toxicity (unlikely) as evidenced by neurologic signs (wide open pupils, depression, ataxia, ("drunken sailor"), disorientation, tremors, seizures) is addressed symptomatically. There is no specific antidote for avermectins such as selamectin. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
