Details

Keep your cat safe from heartworm disease, fleas, roundworms, hookworms, and ear mites by giving him/her Revolution once a month. Your cat will be protected from all of these bugs with one monthly topical treatment making it easy and convenient to keep your cat protected!

What is Revolution for Cats? Revolution is a topical medication applied on a monthly basis. When applied as directed, it is effective in providing your cat with protection against heartworms and fleas. It is also effective in preventing and treating ear mites, roundworms, and hookworms.

Formulated for: Revolution can be safely applied to cats and kittens over 8 weeks of age. This medication can be safely given to pregnant and nursing cats.

How is this medication given? Revolution is a topical medication. It is applied to your cats skin once a month. It is generally recommended to apply this medication on the same date each month. Some veterinarians recommend applying Revolution every month for all 12 months of the year. Others may recommend giving it only during the mosquito season so check with your veterinarian regarding his/her recommendations. If given seasonally, the first dose must be given within 30 days of the pet's first exposure to mosquitoes. The last dose needs to be given within 30 days after the pet's last exposure to mosquitoes. You should give the first dose of Revolution one month prior to the expected start of the flea season for optimal flea control. To apply this medication, part the hair on your pets back at the base of the neck in front of the shoulder blades. The tip of the tube should then be placed at the desired site. Squeeze the tube 3-4 times to empty all of the liquid on the skin. Do not rub into skin. Do apply Revolution to broken skin. If your cats hair coat is wet, do not apply until it is completely dry.

How does this medication work? Revolution works by disturbing the parasite's nerve transmission. Selamectin is the active ingredient that is effective in paralyzing the parasites nervous system. This medication targets feline heartworms (Dirofilaria immitis) in their immature stage. It is also effective in killing adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) and preventing flea eggs from hatching for one month. Ear mites (Otodectes cynotis), roundworms, and hookworm infections in cats can also be effectively controlled and treated with this product if it is used correctly.

What results can I expect? Revolution should kill feline heartworms in their immature stage. It is effective in providing protection from worms that your cat was exposed to in the preceding month. Ear mites can be eliminated with one treatment but a second treatment a month later may be necessary to solve the problem entirely. Your veterinarian will provide you with instructions on how to use Revolution so always follow his/her recommendations. Fleas are generally killed within 36 hours of application but they may linger especially if the pet was already infested with fleas when Revolution was applied.

What Form(s) does Revolution come in? This medication is a topical liquid that is applied to the skin monthly. Each dose is packed individually. Revolution can be purchased in boxes containing a 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month supply that is suitable for your cats weight.

This product was applied to my pet at the vets office. This product passes into the blood stream. My cat became limp and her eyes were dilated, I rushed her back to the vets and he tried to save her but it was too late. I don't think the vet should have used it on her as she wasn't feeling well. Please if you do choose this product keep a close eye on your pet. And do not ever use this on your pet if they are not 100%.

    Comments about Revolution for Cats:

    Revolution is an easy product to apply to my 15-lb. Maine Coon (who fiercely resists all other types of medication, such as oral meds!), and it prevents all the maladies for which it's advertised. My regular preventive vet visits confirm that it does the job. I have a happy cat with none of these problems.

          Comments about Revolution for Cats:

          Both of our cats are 'in-door' cats but we keep the windows open in our screened in porch. They like to sit in the windows and bask in the sun. Revolution for cats treats a lot more than what Pet Armor and similar products do. It may be several bucks more expensive than the other products but it goes much further than what they actually treat. My cats are worth it. Are yours?

            Comments about Revolution for Cats:

            We first tried Revolution at the vets when we took our cats in for their routine check-ups. We thought the vet charged a bit much for the treatment so we went with another brand. The other brand worked fine until one vet visit and we told the vet what we were using. The problem or difference between what we were using and Revolution is that Revolution also treats for I think it was heart worm (or something internal) that the over the counter product we used did not treat. For a few extra bucks, it's worth it to keep our babies healthy inside and out.
