Product Detail: Revolution

Manufactured by Pfizer Animal Health 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.

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 and Heartworm Preventative Pack Sizes

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.

The concentration of active ingredient in the Revolution for Dog and Revolution for Cat products are different so the correct package should be used for the correct breed as noted on the package label.

The doses and pack sizes are as follows:

Revolution for Cats

Revolution for Dogs

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.

Contraindications and Warnings for Revolution Flea Control and Heartworm Preventative

Revolution Flea Control and Heartworm Preventative should not be administered to puppies or kittens less than 6 weeks of age.

Revolution Flea Control should only be used as directed by the manufacturer.

I have used Revolution for both my dogs and previous pets. No fleas, no heartworms and it is easy to use. I wouldn't use anything else

great prices, fast shipping, and no pesky prescription!

I've used Revolution on my cats for several years but the cat package prices are ridiculous. You pay an inordinate amount for the convenience of having small tubes to toss in the trash after use. Like a lot of people I buy the large dog pack and use 1ml syringes to treat the cats. There are currently 7 cats in the house and for about $180 USD (for a large dog 12 pack) I have enough to treat them for 12 months. Using the standard cat packs the price would easily be double. When the package arrived I was pleasantly surprised to find it contained 2 packages of Canex, a "multi spectrum all wormer" for dogs that kills common flea tapeworms (as well as roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms). We live in New Orleans, Louisiana, where fleas are a problem all year long. My dogs inevitably get tapeworms and that requires a trip to the vet for a shot. I don't think Canex is even sold in the USA. Besides the price and fast shipping it's great not to have to pay my vet for a prescription, which is required in the USA. Revolution has been on the market for years so why it still requires a prescription is beyond me, except possibly veterinarians prefer to have the revenue... I will be checking Pet Shed the next time I need any pet meds since I've already found 2 I can buy without having to pay my vet, which is a big savings in addition to the reasonable prices. I'm recommending Pet Shed to friends who also are tired of having to go to their veterinarian to pay 100% markup prices for products that should be easily available.

Revolution for Cats
Sep 06, 2014

This is the best product I have found for my cat. He has no adverse reactions to it, and it works amazingly well against the fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes that thrive in sub-tropical south Texas. I love the ease of purchasing and great prices with Pet Shed, and the shipping is excellent. I like this product because it works against ticks, fleas, and heartworm prevention, which is a major concern with so many mosquitoes here, and my cat likes to sit out on the back patio in the early morning and evening.

We've tried 'em all...

...and Revolution wins hands down! Paws down, too! Greetings from the hamlet of Clatskanie, where the weather is temperate and wet-- a disaster for dogs and cats, but paradise for pests. Revolution declares all-out war on a regiment of those little bloodsuckers, like fleas, ticks, worms, mites, ad infinitum. We felt the Revolution difference the first time we used it. Am I right? WOOF! And how 'bout you cats?! MEOW!! And when they make Revolution for chickens, we'll use that too, right?!? CLUCK CLUCK!!! 'Nuff said.
