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 Revolution and similar products should be withdrawn completely from the market or sale to save other pets from dying.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.
My cats have been using Revolution for several years. There is an inconsistency that I can’t quite figure out. My cat has lost hair in 4 spots close to treatment sight. This has now happened several times, and so I now believe it is due to the product. I fear this product but use it because it supposedly works against heartwo from mosquitoes.
Do NOT use no matter what your vet tells you!
Less than 24 hours after applying this to our otherwise healthy, 9 year old (1st time he’s ever had fleas as an indoor cat) he became extremely weak and lethargic, developed a rapid heart rate, could hardly walk and started vomiting on / off for 2 days. After about a week he finally started eating again and slowly started reverting back to his normal self. It was a nightmare! When we called the vet the day after application to see if we could get him in they said to give it a few more days, that he may have had a ‘mild’ allergic reaction to the...Revolution but as long as symptoms improve not to be too concerned. We were informed they regularly prescribe Revolution with no known issues and it is the gold-standard for taking care of fleas. After a lot of research and looking at other people’s personal experiences we are extremely grateful he is still here. Please, please do not risk the safety of your beloved pets by using this poison! It seems some veterinarians money-making relationship with Zoetis (the drug manufacturer) matters more than the oath they take to protect our animals.
Does not work!
I purchased the 6 pack on special as we have three cats and I knew we would get two months application out if it. I don’t know if there has been a formula change, but usually you see dead fleas within the hour. I applied it a week ago and there seem to be more fleas - no cats have been outside and we treated their living areas as well. Applied a second dose last night and there are just as many fleas today. Very disappointed as it is quite expensive. I feel it has been a waste of money.
Dont waste your money!!!!!
Fleas are still very much alive and roaming all over my cat and this is day 3 since the application. Does not work!! Save your money!! I've used Advocate for years with my dogs and other cat and can physically see fleas drop dead in an instant after application and all my pets were fine. Switching back to them without hesitation!! I am going to fight to either get a refund or replacement. Luckily i still have proof of purchase at the retail outlet i bought it from!
The fleas kept running on the cat’s head
I bought a 6 packet of Revolution Flea treatment for cats. I immediately used it on my white Devon Rex but it totally did not work. Two weeks later I took my cat to the vet for conjunctivitis and she also mentioned that Revolution does not work. She sold me Advocate orange 1 pkt but the fleas are still active 2 weeks after I gave that. I am so not impressed with those ineffective flea treatments. They are very expensive for the little bit that’s in a tube and totally useless.

Questions & Answers
What should I do if my cat licked itself after I messed some revolution on her shoulder.
The instructions say not to remove vial from protective packet until immediately before using. I removed it one evening planning to use, but then forgot to apply that day. I did not puncture the tube. Why does it say to not remove it, until ready to use? Does light make the medication ineffective? Thanks for reply.
Just opened my revolution for cats and it was just air ...what can i do to get my money back or a trplavement please
