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?
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
How long does this take to work? 2 days later and all 4 cats still have very alive fleas.
In 2 hrs after application you should start to see dying fleas. Unfortunatly some cats and dogs some products dont seem to work. If your house is flea infested then youll see fleas on your cat for awhile but they will be slow moving. If theres no fleas in house then the product unfortunatly dosnt work for your cat
Ps it is unusual for it not to work in 4 cats. Is the product in date? They have a use by date on box.
switching to revolution for cats -4 . how long must I wait to apply revolution after bathing with dawn dish soap?
Honestly I wouldn’t waste your money, get the comfortis for small Dogs & cats ( picture of a dog on the box) it’s a tablet they take, fleas gone within 24 hours haven’t had a problem since
Hi I bought 2 packets of Revolution the 'up to 2.5kg' body weight as my cats are small but after getting home and weighing them they are heavier so can I use both tubes on one cat that weighs 4kg?
Sure that's fine :) Product is the same just in smaller quantity for the under 2.5kg tubes (which contain 15mg active ingred Selamectin instead of 45mg in larger size cat tubes) - as 2 x small = 30mg Selamectin total it should work fine on a 4kg cat. The 45mg larger cat tubes cover cats up to 7.5kg weight.
After applying Revolution to my two cats, less than two weeks later they have fleas...WHAT GIVES?? We vacuum everyday, wash bedding, had pest control inside and out yet they cannot go a full two weeks after Revolution application before the fleas are back!
Advantage II is no longer working for my cats and after doing some research, I have decided to try Revolution. One of my cats is solid and built like a bulldog or a pitbull and weighs in at 22+lbs. (I am not over feeding my cats for his sister weighs 6lbs and is the alpha-cat so she eats first and puts down as much as she can without guilt.) Question is: Would I order the Rev pkg for cats weighing 5.1lbs - 15lbs and double up? This is rather worrisome as I keep reading about allergic reactions and kidney failures. If I don't double up how would I know if it works or not? Here in California an annual check up and vaccinations are $145.00. If I add a 12 pack of Revolution for $130.00 on to this months pet expenses, naturally, I would want to know that it is going to work and that and I am not going to create a vet bill for poisoning and/or almost killing my cat. I may have overlooked the answer to this question but could someone please tell me what I should be looking at as protocol?
Is it safe to use revolution after an F3 vaccination?
I am sorry I have no idea if it is safe after an F3;vaccination. You are better off asking your Vet. All I can say Revolution did not work for me but I read on Product Review that some people had dreadful experiences with using it on young cats. I have trained my cat to jump on the bench top of the laundry and comb him with a flea comb. He loves being combed so I do it now morning and night and he has no or very few fleas that I can see.
As I was applying revolution to my other cats, one of them starting licking it off. I put it too far down and he was able to easily turn to reach the application site. It’s been five weeks and now he is at the er vet for kidney issues. He is only 2 years old. Could this be why? Is revolution poisonous? Or damage kidneys?
I am so sorry to hear that your 2 year old cat has kidney problems. I am not a vet or doctor so I cannot possibly answer your question but I don’t think it is very good for any cat to lick Revolution off. It always pays to be very careful with all the flea treatments. I just looked at the Revolution box (I still have 5 tubes left). It states on the box “ if poisoning occurs, contact a doctor orPoisons Information Centre. Phone Australia 13 11 26. So it seems that it can be poisonous. i hope your vet will be able to heal your poor cat’s kidneys.
Can I reapply REVOLUTION before the 30 days..he's bigger then I thought and I got a new box with the bigger weight size...I first apply the 5 lb to 15 lb, and I don't think it was enough for his weight...So , can apply the next month's dose a little earlier?
I recommend you call your vet who has his records and ask.the question. They are the experts Re this and you shouldn't give them more than needed. 3 questions to answer for them are "is he scratching? Indoor/outdoor cat"?
I’m fostering kittens with ringworm and ear mites. I bathe them one or twice a week with an anti-fungal shampoo as part of their treatment. Will Revolution continue to kill ear mites once I’ve bathed them again?
How long do i have to wait to put my 2 kittens together after tx? They wrestle and lick/gently bite each others necks.
How do you apply Zoetis Revolution for cats?
Hi Darlene, I find it quite difficult doing it by myself as it has a strong smell and my cat knows and takes off as soon as I take the lid off. I have to put my finger over the top of the tube if I'm going to trick her. If there are two of you, one to hold, the other to be ready with the tube and part the fur at the back of the neck it would be easier.
Suggest you google how to apply revolution to cats. There is a video where the woman makes it look effortless.
I wish they would make it without smell.
I sit with my cat in my lap facing away from me. I take cap off then put back on. With cap on I part my cats hair on the back of her neck above shoulder blades. Basically where collar lays. I use the bottom of vial to part my cats hair. Then while I hold her hair parted I take cap off and quickly squeeze on. There are videos online that show same technique.
