Revolution for Cats

Revolution makes it possible to protect your cat against a range of internal and external parasites in one easy treatment.

Revolution is a topical treatment you simply apply to the skin at the back of your cat’s neck. One application, once a month is all it takes to give protection against fleas, roundworms (Toxocara cati) and ear mites.

  • Revolution is approved for:

    • Fleas – Revolution is effective against three stages of the flea life cycle which stops ongoing infestation. Revolution not only kills adult fleas on your cat, it also kills the flea eggs and larvae in your cat’s environment. That’s good to know when you consider 95% of your cat’s flea population live in your house, not on your cat.
    • Roundworms – Revolution is 100% effective in treating roundworm infections in cats and kittens with a single dose. Roundworms are the most common worms in cats and can cause general ill health, especially in kittens. Symptoms can include diarrhoea, weight loss and poor condition. Roundworms are a health hazard to people, which makes treatment important.
    • Ear Mites – 100% effective cure in cats with a single dose. Ear mites can live in a cat’s ear canal causing irritation and a black wax-like discharge. Ear mites account for the majority of ear infections in cats. Revolution is a topical application applied once to the back of the neck to cure ear mites.
    • Flea Allergy Dermatitis or F.A.D. – Revolution also helps to control Flea Allergy Dermatitis or F.A.D., a skin condition in cats that are sensitive to fleas.

  • Revolution (selamectin) is a unique avermectin with activity against internal and external parasites:

    • Application of Revolution to skin results in rapid absorption through the skin.
    • Systemic circulation distributes selamectin throughout the body to protect against both internal and external parasites.
    • Selamectin is also redistributed across the skin surface and accumulates in skin sebaceous glands.
    • Sebaceous glands serve as reservoirs for selamectin, providing long-lasting protection against external parasites
    • Selamectin works on the nervous system of parasites where it interferes with the parasite nerve transmission resulting in the parasite paralysis and death.

    To administer Revolution:

    • Press cap down firmly to break seal
    • Part hair and apply to skin in one spot on back of neck
