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.

Storage Instructions

Store at temperatures below 86°F.

  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.

  • Revolution for our Miss Maggie!

    Miss Maggie is our 3.8 lb. teacup chihuahua who is 8 months old on October 14! Yeah! Well there aren’t many flea, tick, and heart worm Meds made for our tiny Miss Maggie! And there are just as few stores which carry it if they even know it exists! We were golden the first month we had her (3 months old—photo left) because the vet who gave us one Revolution didn’t tell us how hard we’d have to look to find it(Hey—Vets that are good have a lot more important things in their heads than this—give him a break)! Long story longer (sorry) but greater—we found it at chewy.com! Now Miss Maggie (8 months—photo-right) is flea, tick and heart worm free and we buy her treats so we get free shipping (oops Miss Maggie is our 3.8 lb. teacup chihuahua who is 8 months old on October 14!

  • Keeps the bugs off

    With a pet like a ferret it is important to get quality flea, tick, and mosquito prevention. However it can be hard to find a product that is safe to use. Unlike dogs and cats, you can't just walk into a pet store and use something off the shelf. My vet perscribed my ferrets Revolution and because my ferrets were between 1-3 pounds this was the proper dose. Buying revolution from the vet is quite expensive. It was costing me $150 every time I went. Luckily Chewy has it for a much more reasonable price and as long as they get the perscription from the vet you are all set. My ferrets got fleas once and it was when I didn't have $150 to spend at the vet one week.

My ferrets got fleas once and it was when I didn't have $150 to spend at the vet one week. It was so expensive to fix the issue. Had to get special shampoo, carpet cleaner, do extra laundry, and of course get more revolution to solve the problem. Never again will I miss a dose of this for my ferrets. Also it works great. It keeps fleas off and if they get fleas it definitely kills them. I recommend this product for ferret owners. … more

  • Good results

    By on

    Fleas in the Mid Atlantic region are particularly bad this year. We tried Frontline Plus on our kitten to no avail. (In years past it was effective in this region. It is not at this time). Within 24 hours of applying Revolution we finally started seeing dead fleas. It has been over a week and we are now flea free. I am very pleased with Revolution.

  • Is as advertised

    By on

    We found five kittens outside the house. We brought them in and found them crusty with fleas. We put them in the upstairs bathroom until they were eight weeks old, the earliest that it is safe to apply Revolution to kittens. The fleas were a scourge. We wiped down and flea-combed the kittens twice a day, but there were always more fleas. I got a lot of bites. Within 24 hours of applying Revolution, however, the fleas were gone, gone, gone. This product definitely works as advertised.

    I have been using Revolution for all four of my dogs (range from 3 lbs to 35 lbs) for many years and the product is SO easy to use. Chewy has a great price on this consistent product.

  • Stopped Working

    By on

    We got this to treat fleas on our two small kittens. There were lots of negative reviews about frontline not working for fleas, and we liked that this also treated heartworm and other worms. We dosed the kittens, waited 3 days, and then checked for fleas. They were flea free (yay!) so we let them have access to the house and the other pets. Two weeks later, we noticed they were COVERED in fleas. We isolated them again and gave them Capstar (which worked awesome), and then spent several days treating the house. I'm very disappointed. The only plus is the amazing customer service I always get from Chewy. I called to let them know about the problem and they were super sympathetic.

  • Revolution Didn't Kill Fleas on Kittens

    I applied Revolution to 6 kittens over a week ago and I'm still seeing fleas crawling on them. What a waste of money.

  • 4 lb senior Chi

    Have used this regularly for months. No adverse reaction and no heartworms, but also still have ongoing problems with fleas. I'm assuming the fleas would be worse if I didn't use this treatment, but I'm disappointed that I still have to give regular flea baths after using it. I do live in the south (coastal NC) and the vet told me we're having an unusually bad flea season this year.

  • Awesome product

    By on

    My vet recommended Revolution, when we firstly got our cats and it works well. One of our cat's had fleas, when we got her, but I washed her with blue Dawn dish soap(safe for kittens and puppies with flea problem) and let is stay on for couple minutes and rinsed it off. Once she was dry I applied Revolution. No more fleas
