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.

Revolution the best !
May 23, 2011

Revolution, a must have here in the North Country, ticks are heavy this year, nary a one on my 4 dogs, the once a month dosing a big help. Also with the additional plus of preventing heartworm and flea infestations. My order came promptly and was a great price from Petshed.

works well for sensitive cats
May 23, 2011

Revolution is the only flea control I use with my cat. She has had bad reactions to other topical flea applications -- from burning skin to hair falling out in clumps. This is the only kind that works for her. It seems to last longer than a month, so I feel like it's a better choice. PetShed has the right price (vet offices charge almost double) and the service can't be beat!

Great for cats
May 23, 2011

I bought some Revolution to use on a stray cat we adopted. She lives outdoors and is susceptible to fleas, ticks, and heartworms here in the South. While she is eating, I just squeeze the drops onto the back of her neck. She never even knows it! No poking pills down her throat. She is protected and we're both happy. I love this product because it does it all!

Angus McGregor is Smiling, Not Itching

Angus McGregor here, fearless Scottish Terrier living the high life in central Florida, far from my typical highlands climate. For months I have suffered from itching because of those pesky Florida fleas. Thanks to "Revolution," I am a new dog man! My human roommates urged me to try this fabulous product, and it is the bomb! It keeps me flea free, as well as fending off other nasty problems like heart worms and mange. Try this stuff -- there's nothing like it, and Pet Shed will get it to you PRONTO. Over and out!
