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 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.

Great products for the BEST prices
I buy all my dog and cat flea and heart meds through Joe's Pet Meds. Their products are great and you don't need a prescription from the vet which can get pretty expensive when you have several dogs and cats. The prices are really reasonable and much cheaper than our local vet. I highly recommend Joe's Pet Meds to all of my animal loving friends.
Best Combination Med EVER!
Flea control, multi-worm control, ear mite control, and it comes in a topical liquid. This is everything that I want in a pet medicine that I can order online without the need of an office visit and payment to get a prescription. Top this off with the best prices in the universe. I don't shop anywhere else.
Multiple Cats, multiple years.
We have had between 3 and 10 cats for the past 10 years. We have tried other brands. This is the only product I would use. Easy to apply and it really works!
Revolution Flea Treatment
I used to purchase Revolution from my vets office until I found Joe's Pet Meds. I have been extremely happy with ordering online and found this product to be as effective as the one I was purchasing at a higher cost from my veterinarian. I have recommended Joe's Pet Meds to many of my friends!
you need a rx to get this at a vet office. in addition to paying $20 or more each. this product is great! I have 8 rescues and thanks to Joes Pet Meds, I can take all of them!!!
REVOLUTION FOR CATS
Revolution is the best and safest pet med you can buy[ + it's the only one that is "prescription med. only" by some vets & retailers] This is the only topical flea & heart worm med. my adult female [ Jaguar Beauty] can handle ! She became sick from my having given her Hartz flea med. I will NEVER use any Flea med. other than Revolution on any of my pets !
This product is fantastic, works great and leaves virtually no oily wet spot where applied, which with the other 2 leading brands was always a problem, both our cats don't even know it's there. Also great service from Joe's, being in the USA we were reluctant to order, but Joe's had our product to us in a matter of days!!
This is the only thing that works. Sometimes I try to get cheap and buy frontline and then regret it...
Great Product been using it for years
Me and my father been using this product for are dogs for over 10 years no issues at all. Very Happy
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%
