Product Detail: Revolution for Cats & Dogs

Manufactured by Zoetis 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.

I have been using Revolution for about 8 years on my 7 +/- cats and it is the very best. I especially appreciate the heartworm and ear mite prevention. A truly great product.

Great Product

I have used this product on two different small dogs, and it works exceedingly well. Especially nice that it covers both fleas and heartworm in one dose so you don't need to buy multiple products.

Great product

We have had a hard time with fleas this year. Wanted to try a product with both heart and fleas. So far this one has worked well. We have four rescue dogs, been using Pet Shed for quite a few years. Very happy with all their products.

Killed most fleas, but not all by the next day

I got my 2 month old toy poodle a few days ago, but the night that I got him, my boyfriend and I noticed a couple fleas around his head. This scared me because I have another 12 year old pomshi that has never had any fleas in her entire life. I brought my toy poodle puppy to the vet the very next morning and the vet found the fleas on his head and around his butt area. The vet applied Resolution behind his neck and he said it was safe to give my puppy a bath after 24 hours. That night, we noticed a few dead fleas falling off his body and onto the ground. I also started vacuuming our entire condo (couches, bed, carpets) and spraying with Siphotrol to be safe. The next day, I brushed his body with a flea comb to get rid of the dead fleas and also the flea dirt. I also found around 3-4 live fleas while combing through his body, which I would kill right away. Once I saw no more flea dirt or fleas coming off his body, I washed his body with Dawn dish soap and let it lather for 10 minutes, rinsed it off then used a puppy shampoo (Burtsbee's puppy 2 in1 shampoo and conditioner) and let that lather for 10 minutes. After rinsing, I blow dried him and only found 1 flea left on his body, but it was dead. I combed through his body again, no fleas or flea dirt was found. Overall, I found that this product worked and killed most of the fleas by the next day and I have not found a flea since! I am hoping that they do not come back after this and I will going back to the vet for another reapplication of Resolution when the month is up.

Great Product!

I switched to Revolution about four years ago. It was the best move I have made in flea and tick prevention. It is a one step process as it also prevents heartworms and intestinal worms. You can't go wrong.
