Revolution is a topically applied medication for cats that:
- Kills adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) and prevents flea eggs from hatching.
- Prevents heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis.
- Treats and controls ear mites (Otodectes cynotis).
- Treats and controls roundworms (Toxocara cati) and hookworms (Ancylostoma tubaeforme).
Revolution enters the bloodstream through the skin. Concentrations of Revolution in the blood and tissues prevent heartworm disease and prevent and treat roundworm and hookworm infections. Revolution selectively redistributes from the blood to the skin and other tissues, where it provides protection against fleas, flea eggs, and ear mites. Revolution is generally well-tolerated. In studies, less than 1% of cats and dogs experienced digestive upset. Approximately 1% of cats experienced temporary hair loss at the application site. Do not use in sick, weak or underweight animals.
