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.

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.

Love Revolution for dogs
Apr 22, 2015

We have a 10yo Boston Terrier named Cody and we love Revolution for Dogs. It covers heartworm, fleas, ticks, etc. It is easy to apply and no mess. Comes in a small tube you puncture with the top and apply directly to the dogs skin once per month. Recommend you have a blood test for the dog if you have never used before and don't know if your dog actually has heartworm. We love that it is a 3/1 product and will always buy it! We don't have to worry when our dog goes with us in the woods or outdoors. Highly recommended and Pet Shed's prices were great!!!

Feline Herds Feral Chicks-Superior Flea Treatment Contributes to Success
Apr 22, 2015

Mr. Spock is of the XYZ generation of unemployed, non-rent-paying cats that our owners are now burdened with feeding, brushing and treating. REVOLUTION through Pet Shed makes it easier. Not only is their price the lowest, their shipping is quick and the easy to open packaging makes this treatment a snap--if only Mr. Spock could do it himself, he would. Product has been successfully keeping him active in his feral chicken-hunting days of springtime here in the rainforest of Maui. With no worries about fleas, he is free to focus on that which he does best-sleep. Aloha e.

I have tried many products to control fleas on my cat, revolution is by far the best product on the market. After just one application the fleas were gone, true story. I recommend this product to anyone who has a flea problem.

The Very Best Medication for my Cats
Apr 18, 2015

I adopted a beautiful blue-eyed Blue-Point Himalayan kitten a few years ago. She was not in the best shape. She had fleas, skin problems from the fleas, plus she had a bad case of ear mites. I brought her to the vet numerous times to have her ears cleaned out and medicated. The poor cat was suffering and most of the time she had such a serious look on her face and I could tell she was miserable from the ear mites.One vet finally recommended Revolution. From then on, my cat is not infested with fleas and her chronic ear mite infestation finally and totally cleared up. Also I love to order from Pet Shed, because the prices are most reasonable and they always deliver the medication in a timely manner.
