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!
Purchased in July 2019 for $69.00.
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.
Not Working as Marketed
I've used Revolution for Cats for a number of years without having a problem with fleas on my indoor-only cat. Since Hurricane Florence, fleas are being found on my cat even though nothing in our routine changed because of the hurricane; we got rain but no flooding; we stayed home. Of course my thinking Revolution was working could have been because there were no fleas in our house to begin with. It's certainly not getting rid of the fleas that are definitely here now.
My kitten died
My kitten died. Never put it together it was like she got sick the first of every month. When she got her revolution for under 5 lbs. We went to the ER twice. Ataxia lethargic paralysis of back legs. She had her last flea treatment September 1 2018. She died September 8 2018. Only 9 months. RIP baby girl I am soo sorry I didn’t do enough research:(
Stopped working, no refunds
I've been using this product for years. My orange baby suffers from a flea allergy so is imperative that we keep fleas off her. In July, I noticed the fleas where back on her in 2 weeks after application. I told the vet and she said there was no way to prove that the out break wasn't due to a food, environmental or other allergies but... i said she's been diagnosed at that vet, it's in her records and that particular vet gave her those shots in the past for just that. I was on the verge of tears telling her we cannot afford medicines that do...n't work + a 50$ vet visit. She had just had those healing shots 2 months ago at that facility. No help, no refunds. The vet also sold us catago as a more affordable flea prevention. That didn't work at all. Again, no refunds.
Product works - just an effort applying it due to the strong smell
Thankfully the tubes are clear now so we can see if the content is fully emptied on application. The smell is strong when the lid is removed and if your cat knows it they'll run a mile before you can grab them if you're on your own. it would be easier to apply with 2 people, one holding the cat, the other getting the right spot on the back of the cat.
I feel, because of the smell, it's a stressful time for both myself and my cat. I missed the right spot last time and she licked some of it off her fur. That didn't make me feel good but sh...e was OK and didn't have any other reaction. Would like to see a diagram sheet in the box to show us exactly where to try and apply. Lasts my cat for about 3 weeks. She starts itching that 4th week into it and it's meant to be a monthly application.
Was ok until the most recent application -fur loss
Had the formula for this product changed? I applied it to my BSH and he now had missing fur at the site of application,
After reading some of these terrifying reviews I won't use it again without speaking to my vet. I'm looking for another product that can do the same things.
My cat reacted 30 seconds after application of Zoetis Revolution and our prince died within the following 2 hours after suffering through severe anaphylaxis. The doctors had trouble stabilizing him and he passed in the car on the way to the emergency hospital. Do not use this drug on your animals and if you do stay as close to emergency care. The seconds count when the reaction to the medication begins.

I was apprehensive buying this product
Having read the reviews here I was somewhat apprehensive when buying this product.
I had been using a different brand (Frontline Plus) which seemed to work for a short period (not for a whole month like it's supposed to). The problem is that one of our cats in particular often goes under the house (slightly raised on stilts) and I'm certain that's where he picks the fleas up from. It's too hard to spray under there so the best method was using a spot treatment to control them. And since the other product didn't seem as effective as I would h...ave liked I wanted to try something different this time. Regardless of some of the negative reviews I thought I'd give this a try. For my two cats Zoetis Revolution has been great. It was easy to apply (which is great because the cats never enjoy having it applied) and it also didn't leave a residue on their fur for long like the other product seemed to. I found it didn't take long for it to start working, I noticed a difference withing a day (cats not scratching as much etc). I haven't noticed any kind of side effects at all. It's been almost two weeks since application and it appears to be doing a great job at keeping the fleas off the cats even though the boy has been going under the house lately. The fact that it controls worms as well was a bonus, one of my cats in particular is very fussy with what she eats so it would be too hard to feed her worming tablets. Really I don't think they're exposed to anything they would pick up worms from but it's always good to do it just in case especially since they are allowed outside for periods of time during the day. I would be happy to buy this product again.

Questions & Answers
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
