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.

Very effective with no reaction
Dec 13, 2011

I was very happy with choosing Revolution. It's difficult to spend so much money on flea treatment, but it was well worth it (and I love that PetShed saved me so much money!). This product was particularly good for my family (4-legged and 2-legged) for a couple reasons: It's alcohol based so it quickly absorbs and dries -- which means my kiddos can pet the dogs and cats without worrying about transferring an oily mess; and it also contains something for internal parasites (which often if you have fleas, there's a good chance for those too). In the past, when I've tried other products (like Advantage), it caused a reaction with both my dog and cats (slight foaming at the mouth) and just overall "off-ness", but with Revolution this didn't happen. Oh yeah, and it works! The fleas are now gone after the second treatment!

I have been using Revolution for at least 3 years ever since the other spot on flea product stopped working. My vet first suggested this to me to treat one of my dogs for a possible mange condition. After reading the product label I decided to use this on my other pets. I have 5 dogs and 5 cats currently on revolution. I own and operate a busy grooming shop and I refer my customers to this site every day. I love that Revolution not only kills fleas but protects my pets against heart worm, ear mites, sarcoptic mange & intestinal parasites. My cats have always had some sort of negative reaction to other flea products but not to Revolution. I can't say enough about this product and we had a flea free summer!

Beats WalMarts Version
Dec 06, 2011

I have been ordering from Pet Shed for about 5 years now. I recently tried Walmarts new brand that claims to be the same. It's NOT. In just one month my cats had fleas. They have not had fleas the whole time I have used Revolution or Frontline. Petshed's prices are the best you can find. I will always buy here from now on.

Great Product!

I have been using Revolution on my "indoor/outdoor" pets for many years and find that this product is all I need to keep my pets and home flea and tick free. I love that it controls Heartworm, mange and many other troublesome parasites as well. Since Collies and other cattle dogs are ultra sensitive to Ivemectrin, I like that I can use it on them as well without having to worry about adverse side effects. I recently tried a copy cat brand and found it did not work at all. I am only sorry my pets and family had to suffer until I could get some Revolution, and get some relief! Thanks to Petshed for always supplying my family and pets...and for keeping me a happy customer for many years! :-)

My pets and I rest easy with Revolution!
Dec 03, 2011

I have been ordering flea medications from Petshed for about 7-8 years. I used to switch around flea meds because I felt like using the same one all the time didn't work as well. This is not the case with Revolution. I have been using it on my cat and dog for about 5 years and it works great! I never see fleas on my pets. I live in Alabama, USA and fleas are a real problem here. I can dose my pets quickly with Revolution as it is a very small amount in the container. This is great for my cat who is skiddish. I have recommended revolution to my coworkers who have pets also. So my pets and me are sticking to Revolution.
