DESCRIPTION:

Revolution Plus for Cats prevents Dirofilaria immitis-related heartworm disease. It controls and treats Ancylostoma tubaeforme (intestinal hookworms), and controls and treats Toxocara cati (intestinal roundworms). Controls and treats Otodectes cynotis (ear mite) infestations. Controls and treats Dermacentor variabilis (American dog tick), Amblyomma maculatum (Gulf Coast tick), and Ixodes scapularis (black-legged tick) infestations. Prevents and treats flea infestations. Kills adult Ctenocephalides felis (fleas). Works for a full month to protect kittens and cats.

Key Benefits:

  • Revolution Plus combines Sarolaner with Selamectin.
  • Sarolaner is an insecticide and acaricide that blocks glutamate-gated and GABA chloride channels in the acarine and insect nervous system.
  • This causes increased stimulation of the nerves, then parasite death.
  • Selamectin works to paralyze and/or kill a broad range of parasites (invertebrates) by interfering with the conductance of their chloride channels.
  • This disrupts normal transmission, inhibiting nerve cell electrical activity of nematodes and muscle cells of arthropods.
  • This causes paralysis and/or death of the parasite.

    Formulated For: For cats and kittens 8 weeks or older and weigh 2.8 lbs or more.

FAQs

Your pet must have a current heartworm test result on file with your veterinarian in order to be prescribed heartworm medication. Heartworm testing is performed annually by your veterinarian to help protect your furry friend.

What is Revolution Plus?
This once-a-month topical (on-the-skin) treatment is truly a revolutionary idea in parasite protection. In Cats, Revolution Plus protects against heartworm, roundworms, hookworms, fleas, ticks and even ear mites when used as directed.

Who is it for?
For cats/kittens over 8 weeks of age and weighing 2.8 pounds or greater.

What are the benefits?

  • Heartworm-preventive cats and kittens
  • medication also can be used to treat and control roundworms and hookworms in cats
  • Also delivers flea & tick control and prevention

How does Revolution Plus work?
Revolution Plus is used in the prevention, control, and treatment of various parasite infections. The active ingredients are sarolander and selamectin, which interferes with the parasite’s nervous system. It is an effective heartworm preventive, killing the immature form of the heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis). It kills adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) and prevents flea eggs from hatching for one month. It is also used for the treatment and control of ear mites (Otodectes cynotis) Revolution Plus is effective in controlling tick infestations. Revolution Plus also treats and controls roundworm and hookworm infections.

How is it given?
For the prevention of heartworm disease, Revolution Plus must be applied monthly, preferably on the same date each month. It is recommended that Revolution Plus be used year-round, although some veterinarians may recommend using it only during the mosquito season. If used seasonally, the first dose must be applied within 30 days of the pet’s first exposure to mosquitoes. The last dose must be applied within 30 days after the pet’s last exposure to mosquitoes.

To control fleas, apply the first dose one month prior to the expected start of the flea season.

Part the hair on the back of the pet at the base of the neck in front of the shoulder blades. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the tube 3-4 times to empty the entire contents on the skin. Do not massage into skin or apply to broken skin. Do not apply when the haircoat is wet.

What results can I expect?
Revolution Plus will kill the immature heartworms the pet was exposed to in the preceding month. For ear mites, most mites are killed with one treatment, although a second treatment a month later may be required; follow the advice of your veterinarian. To control ticks, the dosage may need to be changed from the heartworm dose of once a month; again follow your veterinarian’s recommendations. Most fleas are killed within 36 hours of application. If the pet was already infested with fleas when Revolution Plus was applied, you may see fleas after that period as the immature forms of the fleas in the environment hatch.
