Product Information

Revolution for Cats is a preventative given once a month in order to protect your feline from heartworms, roundworms, hookworms, fleas, and ear mites. Revolution is one of the only heartworm medications that can be applied topically which is an added bonus!

What is Revolution for Cats? When used as directed by your veterinarian, Revolution for Cats provides reliable protection against heartworm disease, fleas, ear mites, roundworms, and hookworms. In order to be effective, this medication is applied topically on a monthly basis.

Revolution for Cats is formulated for: Cats and kittens over 8 weeks of age and pregnant/nursing cats should be able to tolerate Revolution safely.

What are the benefits of Revolution? Keeping your cat safe is easy with Revolution. Topical application avoids the need for a pill in order to prevent heartworm disease in your cat. Fleas, ear mites, hookworms, and roundworms can also be controlled and prevented with this medication. Applying Revolution once a month is all that is necessary to keep your cat protected.

How does Revolution work? Selamectin is the key ingredient in Revolution. Selamectin works cause an interruption in the targeted parasite's nervous system. Revolution for Cats is effective against feline heartworms (Dirofilaria immitis) in their immature stage, adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis, ear mites (Otodectes cynotis), roundworms, and hookworms. Revolution also prevents flea eggs from hatching for one month.

How is Revolution administered? Apply Revolution to your cat’s skin once a month, preferably on the same date each month. Many veterinarians recommend applying Revolution year round while others recommend giving it only during the mosquito season. If given seasonally, the first dose must be given within 30 days of the pet's first exposure to mosquitoes. The last dose must be given within 30 days after the pet's last exposure to mosquitoes. Follow your veterinarian’s exact instructions for your cat. Start giving the first dose of Revolution one month prior to the expected start of the flea season for effective flea protection. In order to apply properly, part the hair on your cat’s back at the base of his/her neck in front of the shoulder blades. Squeeze the tube 3-4 times to empty the entire contents on the skin. Never massage into the skin or apply to broken skin. You should not apply Revolution if your cat’s hair coat is wet.

What results can I expect? Revolution should kill immature heartworms that your cat was exposed to in the preceding month which prevents adult heartworms from developing. Ear mites are usually killed with one treatment, but a second treatment may be required a month later. Most fleas are killed within 36 hours of application but this process may take longer especially if your cat was already infested with fleas when Revolution was applied.

What Form(s) does Revolution come in? Revolution is a liquid that is applied topically to the skin. Boxes containing 3, 6, and 12 doses are available.

          Comments about Revolution for Cats 15.1-22 lbs:

          We found flea problems when our son was getting bitten by it nightly. We thought it was on the dog who slept with him, but then, we found out that the cat was the one with serious problem! We were using over the counter medication and flea collar, but obviously, they did not work. I used to use Revolution before we moved to this area, so I went back to it, then within 12 hours of applying, I was combing off dead fleas from right to left! This product works!!

          Service and delivery comments:

          The service was very fast! It came one day before the original delivery date due to a super quick shipping! No problem with having them contact with our vet for RX, which made it easier for me!

              We live in the Florida Keys. Fleas here have no season, but I have never seen one on any of my six cats. Yes, my cats live indoor, but flea eggs can come in on shoes. Plus it protects against heartworm and that comes from mosquitos. It's easy to apply, just a quick application once a month and the animal is protected. Easy and effective.

                Ingredients

                Doses of Revolution are packed individually to accommodate your cat’s body weight. The contents of each vial should not be split. For proper use: press cap the down until it punctures the applicator seal. Part the hair at base of neck and place tube on visible skin area. Squeeze the tube 3 or 4 times in one spot until empty. Bathing or shampooing your pet 2 or more hours after treatment will not reduce the effectiveness of Revolution. The hair coat should be dry before applying. If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember. If more than one monthly dose of Revolution is missed, contact your veterinarian for further instruction before resuming use of this medication. Revolution should be given only to the pet for which it was prescribed for.

                Possible Side Effects: It is rare for Revolution to cause any side effects but they are always a possibility. Incoordination, trembling, and drooling are examples of possible side effects. Drooling and vomiting may be observed if Revolution is accidentally given orally. Temporary hair loss can occur at the site of application. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet is acting unusual in any way after receiving Revolution.
