Description

Your furry friend must have a current heartworm test result on file with your veterinarian in order to be prescribed heartworm medication. Please visit your veterinarian to have this test performed annually to protect your four-legged friend. Revolution is a medication that is applied directly to your furry friend's skin to protect them from biting critters. When applied every 30 days, Revolution protects against heartworms and fleas. It may also be effective in preventing and treating ear mites, roundworms, and hookworms.

Uses

Revolution kills adult fleas and prevents flea eggs from hatching for one month. It is also indicated for the prevention and control of flea infestations, prevention of heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis, and the treatment and control of ear mite infestations. Revolution is also indicated for the treatment and control of roundworm and intestinal hookworm infections in cats.

Possible Side Effects

In safety studies, Revolution was applied at 1, 3, 5, and 10 times the recommended dose to six-week-old kittens. No adverse reactions were observed. Oral administration of the recommended topical dose of Revolution to cats caused salivation and intermittent vomiting. When applied at 4 times the recommended dose to patent heartworm infected cats, no adverse reactions were observed. In well-controlled clinical studies, Revolution was also used safely in animals receiving other frequently used veterinary products such as vaccines, anthelmintics, antiparasitics, antibiotics, steroids, collars, shampoos and dips.

Drug & Food Interactions

Talk to your veterinarian about any other drugs your dog is taking before starting this medication.

Precautions

Prior to administration of Revolution, cats should be tested for existing heartworm infections. At the discretion of the veterinarian, infected cats should be treated to remove adult heartworms. Revolution is not effective against adult D. immitis and, while the number of circulating microfilariae may decrease following treatment, Revolution is not effective for microfilariae clearance. Hypersensitivity reactions have not been observed in cats with patent heartworm infections administered three times the recommended dose of Revolution. Higher doses were not tested. For use in animals only. Keep out of reach of children.

  1. Remove the Revolution tube from its protective package.
  2. Holding the tube upright, firmly press the cap down until you hear a ‘click’ sound, which signals that the cap has punctured the applicator seal. Remove the cap and check to be sure that the tip of the tube is open.
  3. 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.
  4. Apply the tip of the Revolution tube directly to the skin. Squeeze the tube firmly 3–4 times in one spot until empty. Keep tube compressed on the final squeeze to avoid drawing liquid back into tube. Avoid contact between Revolution and your fingers.
  5. While keeping tube squeezed, drag it away from liquid and lift up to remove.
  6. Ensure tube is empty.

Do not massage Revolution into the skin. Do not apply when the haircoat is wet. Do not apply to broken skin – Revolution contains alcohol. Stiff hair, clumping of hair, hair discoloration, or a slight powdery residue may be observed at the site in some animals. These effects are usually temporary and do not affect the safety or effectiveness of the product.

    This product is okay. I usually use something else but my vet suggested this. I decided to get this rather than Advantage Multi for cats like I had in the past for two reasons. One, it doesn't smell much so my cat doesn't mind it so much. Two my cat is 20# so it was cheaper to buy this than my regular since this has a weight going up to 22#. Advantage multi, I would of had to have purchased largest and smallest size to cover his weight. Revolution does what it says but it allows hitch hikers to come in on your cat because it does not repell fleas, mosquitos and ticks. Advantage Multi does repell mosquitos, fleas and ticks. That is probably why it has a smell my cat hates. They both kill fleas This product is okay. I usually use something else but my vet suggested this.

That is probably why it has a smell my cat hates. They both kill fleas upon being bitten. They both kill intestinal parasites, however Advantage Multi kills more stages. Neither kills Tape worms. They both help keep your cat from getting ear mites and are suppose to kill an ear mite infection. My recommendation is if you have a cat that is with in the weight limit and is outside and inside definitely buy Advantage Multi for cats for the extra few dollars a month, so nothing hitches a ride inside before biting your cat and dying.. If you have a large cat like me and can't afford to spend more of a fortune than these already are and your cat is mostly inside and only out on occasion get the Revolution. … more

  • seems to work

    By on

    My vet put this on one of my cats during a regular check-up and he stopped scratching right away. I got a round for the rest of my cats and they are flea-free now, too. I am totally skeeved out that my lovely pets had fleas (and that fleas were IN MY HOUSE!) but so far, vacuuming and Revolution are the best ticket!!!

  • Keeps the fleas away

    By on

    I only use this during the heavy flea months if I'm trapping feral cats to be TNRed, since I keep them in my attached garage while they recover from being spayed and neutered. I don't want my indoor cats to catch fleas. I also do like the added protection from heartworms and ear mites. My vet recommended this over Frontline.

  • Revolution

    By on

    I have used this product since the beginning of my cat's life. Personally, I only use it in the summer as Tessa is totally an inside cat, and I worry about chemicals on my pets. Revolution is an excellent product. It cases no irritation on her skin, and the fleas do not stand a chance. I had a massive flea infestation one summer and this stuff got rid of the fleas on my cat and kept them off. I also treated the house, and learned to start early in the warm months.

  • Great product and easy to use

    By on

    I've been using Revolution for about 4 months now and it's a nice product. The squeeze tube takes a bit to get used to but once you got the hang of it you are golden. I like it more than collars and my cats like the ease of it.

  • Revolution got rid of them!

    By on

    I have found that Revolution works when other products (i.e. Frontline, etc.) do not. Although it does not protect against ticks, I still find it the best available at this time.
