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 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.

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 for cats
In the states Frontline, Advantage, and Advantix stopped working; but Revolution did not. Great product if you are having trouble controlling fleas!!! Joespetmeds has consistently been reliable and dependable when purchasing flea and tick medicine.
Revolution is the best!
We have three dogs and live in Oregon where the fleas and ticks run rampant and are uber strong, and resistant to many types of "top rated" more popular flea meds . We have found Revolution does a fine job and repels the fleas and ticks that other medications don't seem to faze even longer than the recommended time between treatments giving us and our dogs peace of mind. Thank you Revolution You have proven to us that you are the best.
We have been using Revolution for several years. None of our dogs has had fleas and have remained protected from heart worm. It is wonderful to use a product that provides so much protection! The vials make it easy to dose each animal. I highly recommend this product.
Revolution is exactly what it is!!
I had a friend tell me about this product. I ordered right away and I have just reordered Revolution for both my cat and dog. They have been free from parasites since I started putting this product on them. I love the small easy to open container and I can usually just pet them and they don't even know that they are being treated. Once they feel the cool liquid on their skin, and start to bolt... I am done. No trauma, no fuss, one product to protect them every day. I tell everyone who will stop long enough to listen about this product. Thank you for carrying this product so we can live with our buddies and invite them to bed with us and never worry that I will get fleas!!
Best protection for flea/tick control
This has been the best and easiest product to use to control fleas on and off my cat. It gives me great satisfaction and peace of mind for the health of my cat. I do not worry about where my cat goes outside and what she might bring into my home. I am 100% confident in this product to keep my cat and my home free of unwanted and potentially harmful pests. Wonderful price and easy to order. Thanks to Joe's Pet Meds. Love you guys!
