Does not work!
I keep using revolution plus on my two cats and revolution for my two dogs to make sure they can’t give the mites back to one another and it’s not getting rid of the mites only makes their symptoms better. I had my cats ear mites confirmed by a vet so I know they have them. This product is a joke!
Dont bother waste of money
Applied first round, made no difference, still riddled with fleas.. poor little boy is still scratching. I cleaned his bedding vacuumed the house all cleaned up, as they suggested, made no difference, Very expensive for no effect, surprised vets recommend and sell it
Purchased in February 2020 for A$60.00.
Applied two weeks ago and it killed some fleas but not all. Found 7+ large fleas still on my cat. Want to reapply but concerned about visible side-effects like lethargy and weakness. The pet supply store recommended Revolution, but it’s not good value and could be unsafe/too toxic for cats and ineffective on fleas
Will never use this product again
My beautiful 4yr old cat was very weak, she was always sleeping & wouldn't eat after using this product. I had to hand feed her a little bit at a time. Took 3 weeks until she was back to normal.
Will never use this product again.
Never use it again
Have a 12 month old rag doll cat was using advantage is fairly good vet suggested I use revolution to make sure her fleas don’t became resistant to her previous products. However my cat is totally infested with all stages of the fleas she is a indoor cat that I flea comb about 4 times a day. Waste of money.
Don't go there
My three Burmese cats were applied Revolution for cats on January 18th 2020. Being indoor cats I noticed fleas, being weather conditions, humidity they had fleas. Flea infestation came back on all 3 January 28th, 10 DAYS later after applying Revolution for cats!!!!! This product does not work for a month. I paid $46 for 1 month, having 3 cats.I tried to call Zoetis on January 28th but no reply. DON'T buy this product for your furry friend.

Revolution killed my cat
Dosed my two cats with Revolution as per usual. Noticed the older cat wobbling around a bit, thought it had to do with his age. A couple of days later and he is getting worse, and I’m trying to think of what has changed and the only thing I could think of was the Revolution, I checked the internet to see if others had similar issues with this product and I found others saying the same thing. He became paralysed, could not eat or drink. I tried to help him, hoping he would become better, like some others have said about their pets. He didn’t, w...ithin a week he died. It was a terrible and unnecessary death. He was treated like the parasite this product is supposed to be working on. I will never use this product or any other poison on my animals again. Revolution and similar products should be withdrawn completely from the market or sale to save other pets from dying.
Expensive & ineffective.
This made no difference for my cats, which is not ok for the price of this product. More people need to know not to buy this product. Try Advocate instead, it made all the difference.

My cat has revolution on Thursday and became ataxic and weak on Friday. I thought it may be from his sugars.
My cat had this product for the first time on Thursday and became unable to balance/walk steadily on Friday. Became disinterested in his food and wasn't himself. He is a diabetic and I did a blood sugar, which was 12.4mmol/l. He deteriorated during the day and took him to the emergency vet where he stayed until Sunday. They said he had diabetic ketoacidosis, which is awful. They said his blood work was normal and to keep giving insulin etc and monitor his sugars. When I brought him home and took him out of the cage he was unsteady and unable to...walk properly. I called the vet and said was this resolved before being discharged and they said they never assessed this as he was in a cage for his hospitalisation. They said it wouldn't be related to the ketoacidosis and maybe something unrelated. I started washing the area that I had applied revolution to and hoped for the best. He's still not quite right, but the only thing that I did differently is give him revolution. Cat has stable blood sugars but now has elevated liver enzymes, lethargy and still doesn't want to eat or drink. Blood sugars kept dropping and experienced first seizure on Sunday morning. I think it triggered my cat into showing signs and symptoms that he was otherwise hiding. Cat diagnosed with aggressive lymphoma yesterday (Monday) and passed away today. Not sure if correlation.

Thought my cat was eating somethink toxic so looked online after she had a seizure and found reports of revolution plus causing seizures. I'm never using this product again, it was horrible watching my 15 yr old cat lose control and fall over, lasted 2 minutes she got up fine but omg scary thinking she was dying and then I've poisoned the cat. Don't risk it!

We had a bad reaction and my cat almost died
My kitty cat went completely limp after application and could not walk for three days. Did not eat or drink or move for 3 days. I put a P pad up under him because I thought he would die on me over night. Eventually he recovered it took about a week. The site where the medication was applied became bald and scabby. This was very scary and we will not use this product again as he is allergic.
Applicator is broken
The applicator for this product just doesn't work right. You push the top down and pierce the applicator, discard the top, push it against fur on back of neck and squeeze with all your strength - and a tiny bit comes out, leaving most of it still in the applicator. Try a few more times, each time a tiny amount is released, by now the cat can smell the chemicals and gets agitated. Wont be buying this product again.

Does not kill fleas on Canines
I brought a 3 pack of revolution from pet city Port Kennedy WA. Applied it as instructed and within one week the fleas remained, unknown the dog came inside and my chikdren were bitten by the fleas revolution said their liquid kills... Applied another bottle within 3 weeks of the first one being applied and the fleas STILL remain! I am currently watching my poor dog scratching non stop from a terrible product that cost me a small fortune!
Not impressed at all!

Please beware and observe your cat for an hour after application if using for the first time
I have 3 cats, revolution plus worked well for 2 of them, but one of then had a severe reaction within an hour of applying the product, he has lost all strength in his hind legs and cannot even climb into a litter box without assistance. At the time I did not realize he was having an allergic reaction. I found out after the fact, if your cat has an allergic reaction it will happen fairly quickly and you need to immediately wash the product off. I took him to the Vet and she had zero knowledge whether side effects are temporary or permanent. ...It has been a few weeks, I am hoping my cat will recover, but it has not happened yet. Point is, if you are using this product for the first time, watch your cat. Maybe side effects only happen in 1% , they say, but they can happen, and you need to respond quickly if they do to prevent permanent damage to your cat. The label should say this.
Flea bitten by Revolution
I have 7 cats of which I have used Revolution for. 4 of my cats are indoor only, the other 3 are outdoor only. They do not come in contact with each other at all. I noticed fleas on one of my indoor cats just yesterday, which has been approximately 3 weeks after administering Revolution. Not only that but the 3 outdoor, as well as one of my indoor cats all have vast areas of hair loss. I pay a lot of money for taking care of my fur babies. I expect a product to deliver what I pay for. Now I'm going to have to retreat my cats for not just fleas but also the worms that are sure to start showing up. I will not buy this product in the future and have every intention of contacting the company and asking for my fees to be returned.

I am very dissatisfied with the product
I purchased a 6 pack, it has not met our expectations, not only did it not kill all the fleas as stated In the description, but less than 2 weeks after treatment I have had to treat all 3 cats again, this is an expensive treatment and I would expect it would be effective, I am very dissatisfied with the product

Works realy well
Ive been using this for 12yrs. It works extremely well. No fleas or worms except for 1 month when i stopped treatment in the middle of winter but my cat quickly got fleas so much i wont do that again. The only side effect is a small amount of hair loss thinning where i put it on. The skin is realy healthy though

Used to be very good....
We have 6 cats, but in past 2 or 3 years have noticed Revolution is not as effective as it used to be. I NEVER get a month flea free for my cats- more like 1-2 weeks. There are a lot of stray cats outside in this area so perhaps the cats are constantly picking up new fleas, but product does seem to work temporarily - just not for long, and we can't afford to be dosing 6 cats more than once a month :( On the plus side - I have never seen any negative reaction or health issue from using this product in over 20 years use (along with other meds mi...xed in in that time) - so don't be too alarmed by the horrible sad reviews of people losing their loved pets. It clearly happens (horrifyingly!) but I expect rarer than with most if not all other options. I trust it + it is a wormer as well, which is great as worming pills can make my cats sick if I can get them to eat at all! Cats so much happier after de-fleaed, I just wish there was an affordable safe product that genuinely works for several weeks.
Questions & Answers
I treated my cat 3 days ago with Revolution Plus for Fleas and I’m still seeing live adult fleas. Don’t see any flea dirt tho. Why are the adult fleas not dying?
