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.

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

Awesome product !
Have been using this for about 10 years and have tried others a time or two. I believe it is the best topical flea control there is . No doubt. Does not make my dogs sick either.
Revolution for dogs
Our chihauhau is 4 and a half. We have used this product faithfully since he was a baby and it has been wonderful. Now, HE would disagree as he does NOT like the smell at all, but it keeps his little hiney free and clean of parasites. We now have a 2nd baby (Heinz 57). He is about 30 pounds. Since we had prior familiarity with the product, we use it on him as well and results are the same. He has remained free and clean. Revolution provides little stickers as well so you can mark your calendar when you give it. It is helpful so you know either I did or I didn't. We like this product and we LOVE Joe's PET MEDS. Keeps our live AND the lives of our babies FREE and CLEAN. LOL.
I've used revolution for years on my miniature yorkie and my two pit bulls, it works great and it's so easy to apply! Joes pet Meds is the best and most affordable way to go!I recommend Joes to everyone I know!!! I'm very satisfied with the results!
WE have 4 cats and Joe's has the best prices and delivery.
Cats Are Flea Free!
We had a real problem with a flea infestation in our home! We tried sprays, flea collars and store bought flea treatments with no relief from the constant itching of our cats and us finding fleas trying to bite us! We learned from family members about Joe's Pet Meds and decided to try it out of desperation. We ordered Revolution and in a few weeks saw amazing results! We're happy to be Joe's customers from now on!
We have 2 cats & we won't use anything else. This is the only brand that has really kept our babies flee-free, even being indoor-outdoor cats. Joe's is the cheapest place we have found it. I'm still trying to find their coupons.
Revolution for Cats
The medicine arrives quickly. This has kept fleas and ticks from our cats. We live in South Louisiana where fleas and ticks are a real problem. This works better than Advantix for our cats.
We have used Revolution from Joe's Pet Meds for about 8 years. We have a very timid cat who frightens easily. Revolution is easy to apply monthly to the back of her neck. I usually apply it when she is sleeping (unsuspecting), and right before I leave home for a few hours. By the time I return she has forgotten I applied the med. Otherwise she would hide under the bed for hours after I applied; not because it was painful, burned, etc., but just because she is so timid. With the exception of one time, the meds arrived promptly. When I called to inform Joes the meds did not arrive, he sent another shipment. Overall, we are very pleased. Thank you.
Love my Revolution
I have used this for many years and have seen no signs of resistance to the product. It keeps by animals free of fleas and in Florida that is not easy. Thanks so much Joes Pet Meds.
Revolution Huge Plus!
We have used Revolution for our cats for at least 15 years and have been very pleased with the results. Having rescued over 20 cats, all with fleas and other parasites it has been imperative to have something that really works. After just one use of this product and continued maintenance every month we have never seen a flea on any of them nor have they had internal parasites. We have 6 cats that never go outside but they once got fleas that we brought in from rescuing a litter of kittens. Fleas can take over a house in no time but we didn't have any problem at all after putting Revolution on all of our "babies" just one time. We swear by it and have recommended it to every cat owner we know. Every one of them has thanked us for the advice. It's truly a product that does what it says it will do and it's easy to use. We use it now because there are outside cats and we live in the woods where there are deer and other critters that have fleas. Even the outdoor cats never have fleas on them. To say we are pleased with Revolution is an understatement. There's no way we'd ever use anything else. We rated it 5 stars but would gladly rate it higher if we had the option.
