Product Detail: Revolution for Cats & Dogs

 

Manufactured by Zoetis Australia.

The indications for use are different between dogs and cats. Whilst treatment can begin from 6 weeks of age in both puppies and kittens, the parasites Revolution treats is different between the 2 species.

Revolution for Dogs

Revolution for Dogs is effective in preventing heartworm infection. It has a safety profile which extends over a large number of breeds and can be used in heartworm positive dogs. Revolution for Dogs also kills adult fleas and also flea larvae and eggs in contact with the treated animal and prevents affected flea eggs from hatching. Thus it is very effective in managing flea infestations. Revolution for Dogs will also treat and control sarcoptic mange and ear mites in dogs.

Revolution for Cats

Revolution for Cats is also used to prevent heartworm infection but cats should be tested by their veterinarian for heartworm prior to beginning treatment. Revolution for Cats will also kill adult fleas, flea larvae and eggs in contact with the treated animal and prevent affected eggs from hatching. Flea control is therefore managed well with this product. Revolution for Cats will also treat and control ear mites, roundworms and hookworms in cats.

Revolution is a safe and simple way to protect your pet from a range of common parasites. It prevents heartworm disease while treating and controlling fleas (including flea eggs and larvae) and ear mites in both cats and dogs, hookworms and roundworms in cats and sarcoptes mites in dogs. This effective medication is applied to the skin of your pet once a month.

Each tube contains: SELAMECTIN

Directions for use: Depress the cap to puncture the seal, then remove the cap. Part the hair on the back of the animal in front of the shoulder blades until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the tube to empty its entire contents directly on to the skin.

How to use Revolution Flea Control and Heartworm Preventative

Revolution Flea Control is a once-a-month topical application for dogs and cats. Application is quick and easy and the product should only be applied to a dry animal. The product is water-proof after 2 hours so normal bathing, swimming etc. can continue.

The correct tube size should be selected for each individual animal and individual tubes should not be shared between several animals. The cap on the tube should be pushed downwards onto the tube until a "click" is heard and then the cap should be removed. The hair at the base of the neck should be parted to skin level and the entire contents of the tube squeezed onto this area. Do not rub in the liquid.

 

Revolution Flea Control and Heartworm Preventative Pack Sizes

Revolution Flea Control comes in several sizes according to the size of the dog or cat which it treats. The appropriate size tube should be used for each animal being treated.

The concentration of active ingredient in the Revolution for Dog and Revolution for Cat products are different so the correct package should be used for the correct breed as noted on the package label.

The doses and pack sizes are as follows:

Revolution for Cats

Revolution for Dogs

Tips and Tricks for Using Revolution Flea Control and Heartworm Preventative

Most animals will tolerate the application of a spot-on topical treatment quite well. However if your pet is unco-operative, having another person assist can be of immense benefit. Having someone restrain the cat or dog will help. Another suggestion would be to offer the pet a dog treat or cat treat whilst applying the product. For dogs which tend to roll around after application of the product, taking the dog for a walk immediately after application can avoid this problem.

All animals need to be completely dry before applying Revolution Flea Control and Heartworm Preventative.

Many owners will find picking a date in the month which is significant for them to help them remember the treatment date. For example ensuring the dose is given on the 1st of every month can make remembering the due date easier. Owners could also place a note or sticker on the calendar on the due date to help remember.

Active Ingredients of Revolution Flea Control and Heartworm Preventative

Revolution for Dogs and Revolution for Cats contains the active ingredient Selamectin.

The concentration of Selamectin differs between the Revolution for Dog and Revolution for Cat products.

best flea protection for the money!

I have used this for several years and I have never had a bad experience with it ( side effects ). I controls fleas and ticks as expected. sometimes it seems to not do a lot for ear mites because my cats still mess with there ears, usually my vet says they have a minimal amount of ear mites and just cleans them out. but I'm sure it would be worse without using this. I usually use this for the first two months and use a cheaper brand for the 3 months in mid summer then use 1 month of revolution before winter. mainly to save a bit of money, I have never had a flea infestation doing this. works well for me! I recommend this 100%

Revolution is literally the only flea medication that works for my cat. I've tried every other medicine that there is, and this is the only one that does what it's supposed to. I've been using it for years and don't plan on stopping anytime soon.

I have used Revolution and other flea prevention products and I believe that I have gotten better results with Revolution than with any other product. I have found that Joe's Pet Meds has the best prices as well as service that I have gotten.

Revolution...the ONLY product you should buy for your cat!!

Revolution is the only product that covers heart worms for cats. It also gets rid of fleas, ear mites, round worms and hook worms. I would never get anything else for my Zoey. She is a member of the family and I want her as protected as possible! Revolution is easy to apply and waterproof as it is absorbed through the skin and not just laying on the skin of your pet. I have never had a cat that has shown any adverse reaction to this product. I'm sure your cat will thank you for using Revolution!

Best product, service ever!

Been using this brand on my 9 year old Siamese for about 6 years...she isn't particularly fond of the application (we have to wrap her up like a kitty burrito) but only stays mad for a day :) The product works so well, that even though she spends a lot of outdoor time in the warm weather days, there are no fleas. Also great is the fact that I don't have to travel 100 miles to take her to the vet for a prescription. Thanks to JPM for many years of great service!

This product is the only thing I use on my toy poodle that doesn't give her side affects.. The main thing is the heart worm prevention because the edibles cause severe belly aches for her.
