Product Detail: Revolution

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.

Revolution Flea Control and Heartworm Preventative should not be administered to puppies or kittens less than 6 weeks of age.

Revolution Flea Control should only be used as directed by the manufacturer.

I find this product to be great and works as it says it does! My dog has no problems with this product and doesn't mind me putting it on him either. Would recommend to anyone!

We use the Revolution for our dogs and cats. It takes care of all the parasites that affect them and our colonies and special needs animals are much healthier for having the protection afforded by using the Revolution.

Revolution is the BEST Flea control

I have a German Shepherd and a Siberian Husky along with three cats. I have tried many Flea control drops and Revolution is the best by far. My husband was laid off for a year and we could not afford Revolution so we have been battling fleas and ticks for a year now and NOTHING works. My husband got a job and the first thing he said was go to Joe's Pet Meds and get some REVOLUTION. Joe's Pet Meds is the absolute best place to buy Revolution. I've been ordering from Joe's since 2011. Love you Joe's Pet Meds!!!

This is a great working product. One thing is that they had this product for cats the weigh up to 20lbs. I have to use this dose every three weeks instead of once a month.

Very Happy With Joes

I have been using Joes Pet Meds online for nearly 7 years. I have been very satisfied with the product and my cat barely notices when I inject the monthly med. Only once did the order not arrive. I contacted Joes Pet Meds and they shipped another order at no additional cost to me. I couldn't be better satisfied.

Does the Job

I've used this product on both of our cats for many years. Our cats are indoor/outdoor, and we live in the South in a woodsy subdivision, so both fleas and ticks are a problem here during most months of the year. The cats do feel the liquid when we squeeze it out of the tube onto their necks, and they don't like the sensation. But the stuff works. We never find fleas on our pets and only rarely does a tick manage to attach to them.

works well

I have used revolution with 2 cats now and I really like it. I don't find it to be as harsh as some of the others. With my most recent cat the vet has one that they recommend and I used it for about 2 months and it was terrible. My cat is not a big fan of the "neck stuff" to begin with but she hated that. I immediately put her on the revolution and she is much better.
