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.

Living in Florida requires the best flea applications, and Revolution is the only one that works!

Awesome product

I have been using Revolution since my german shepherd was a puppy (4 years now) and my mom has been using it on her three shepherds for about 10+ years now and we have never had any issues with it. I live in the north east and we have all four types of ticks. I have to say that if you live near a pond and if your dog is sick (has any kind of skin infections because apparently that is a "I LOVE YOU TICKS" marker) the deer ticks get attached by the dozen but if your pet's skin is healthy you don't have to worry about anything. And even when they do get attached they still die eventually... I've never had to deal with any other parasites, not fleas nothing. The product is also very easy to administer. My dog doesn't complain at all, he sees the little tube and knows to just sit down, you our it in the middle of the shoulderblades below the neck and done deal until the next month!!! High recommended!!

Best of them All!

Revolution has kept my dog Zoe flea and parasite free for 10 years now. When I first got her from our local shelter, she had started getting some "balding" spots on the sides of her body. As soon as I used Revolution, the hair immediately started growing back in that week! I think Revolution caught the parasite just in time to save her (and me!) a world of pain and money! You just can't beat it. NOR can you beat Pet Shed! We just love the site. They've always been quick to get our products to us with absolutely no problems this entire decade.

Not just for fleas and ticks

Great product - takes care of flea/tick (even in the sandy and wooded parts of SC), as well as heartworm, mites, and other types of worms. The only time I experienced my dogs having worms was when I tried a different product for a couple months. Obviously, Revolution works. I've been using it for years.

I am a cat sitter with four cats of my own. They have outdoor access to enjoy bird watching, etc. They have 29 collective years among all four and over the years have brought in bugs and geckos but no fleas. They credit that to being clever cats; I credit it to Revolution.
