How Revolution Plus for Cats works
Revolution Plus is indicated for the prevention of heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis. Revolution Plus kills adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) and is indicated for the treatment and prevention of flea infestations, the treatment and control of tick infestations with Ixodes scapularis (black-legged tick), Amblyomma maculatum (Gulf Coast tick) and Dermacentor variabilis (American dog tick), the treatment and control of ear mite (Otodectes cynotis) infestations, and the treatment and control of roundworm (Toxocara cati) and intestinal hookworm (Ancylostoma tubaeforme) infections for one month in cats and kittens 8 weeks and older, and weighing 2.8 pounds or greater.
How can you properly administer Revolution Plus for Cats?
To administer the product, part the hair on the back of the animal at the base of the neck in front of the shoulder blades until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the tube 3 or 4 times to empty its entire contents directly onto the skin in one spot. Keeping the tube squeezed, drag it away from the liquid and lift to remove. Check the tube to ensure that it is empty.
The recommended minimum dosage is 2.7 mg selamectin per pound (6 mg/kg) of body weight and 0.45 mg sarolaner per pound (1 mg/kg) of body weight. Administer the entire contents of a single tube (or two tubes in combination for cats weighing over 22 pounds) of Revolution Plus topically in accordance with the following table.
|Body Weight(lbs)||Tube Cap Color||Tube Volume (mL)||
|2.8 - 5.5||gold||0.25||15||2.5|
|5.6 - 11||orange||0.5||30||5|
|11.1 - 22*||green||1||60||10|
Cats over 22 lbs should be treated with the appropriate combination of tubes.
