Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand your puppy received a double dose of Revolution in the last 2 days. Is that a correct summary of the situation?

That is fine. You do not have to accept the phone call offer. It is automatically offered by the website, but I can answer your question with text chat only if you prefer it. I am typing my response now. Please bear with me a moment longer.

This is considered an overdose, but you are in a good position right now to wash off the material that you recently put on the skin. It takes 1-2 days for the Revolution product to work its way into the skin, so if you bathe today then that should wash off the majority of the last dose, and it might also wash some of what your daughter put on the skin yesterday. The issues with an overdose to monitor are generalized shaking, difficulty walking, muscle tremors, and seizures. This should be monitored for the next 1-2 days as a precaution, but if you bathe today then it will be unlikely to occur.
