Product Detail: Revolution for Cats & Dogs

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.

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 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 been using revolution for dogs AND cats for about 9 years after one my cats had gotten ear mites, It was prescribed by the vet for both my cats so I figured whats good for the cats is good for the dogs, unfortunately i found I could not get get it w/o prescription. So I did some serching and found PET SHED, even though I live in the US, it is totally worth it! these guys are awesomely, incredible, never any issues. if they needed to borrow my first born, I would happily hand him over!!! OH and the product is awesome too.

Works Great

My number one choice!

I have used this for my cat for a couple years now, and have found it to be the best in my opinion to kill and stop fleas from eating the poor creature. I have a habit of recommending this to people even if they believe their current flea meds is the best thing out their.

The absolute best!

We've been using Revolution for twelve years now (twelve for our dog and four for our cat). We've never had any problems with worms or mites and have been very pleased with it. I'm happy knowing that my animals are protected by a top-rated medicine, and they're happy because it's so easy to apply. This summer, we toilet-trained the cat, which has been fantastic for us, but has one fallback that I didn't consider - the vet requires a stool sample to get a prescription for Revolution. She's an indoor cat with a phobia of bugs, so I know she's clean, but they refused to help. Rather than derail months of training by putting her back in a litter box, I looked into Pet Shed. The prices were better, the shipping is convenient, I got the same product, and I got complimentary dewormer attached to the box. I won't be buying from my vet's office again!

Revolution is our product of choice!

Revolution is the flea product of choice at my house because it can treat all of my pets. I have two cats and two African hedgehogs, and this is one of the only products I can use on all of them! It really saves me money to be able to order the same thing for everyone and gives me peace of mind knowing all of my fur-kids are protected. African hedgehogs can experience trouble with skin mites that make them lose fur and quills, and Revolution is gentle enough to use once a week for a few weeks until the problem is corrected and the hedgehog is feeling like themself again! It can also be used once a month as a preventative, similar to dogs and cats. Thank you Petshed for making this product available for a great price and with a good deal on shipping too ^_^
