Works well but side effects too
It works very well for flea control and I’ve been using it for many years on my cats and dogs. We do seem to be having an issue this year with hair loss at the application site on both cats. I’ve used Advantage also and have had reactions with that too, ranging from hair loss to burns at the application site. I’m not happy with the hair loss it’s causing but it’s better than chemical burns.
Adult cat had grand maul seizure 3 days after applied and loss of hair to where applied
Disappointed but not surprised that something powerful enough to kill fleas and earmites can cause a seizure and hair loss. Glad I won't be applying a second dose like the poor person(s) whose pets died from that reportedly in this chain of reports.
Hard to tell about scratching etc., though there were no side effects and very simple and easy to us
-Still biting, scratching, losing hair and it's very hard to know if it's working at all.
- VERY EASY to administer and they had no problems with it at all
-No side effects what so ever!

Honestly these reviews
I’ve been using Revolution for both my cats and dogs. I’ve had to use it on 1 month old kittens cause they were infested with fleas. I followed dosing by my pets weight for the most accurate dose. It’s been 8 years since I switched. The only time my pets get fleas is when I get lazy and not buy more for the Summer season. But once the flea control is on them the fleas are dead within 2 days. My pets have never shown signs of side effects and certainly no one had died from it. I have used this on 3 dogs and close to 30 cats throughout the years....The are many homeless kitties when I live now. I honestly do not get where all these crazy reviews come from so I think it is best to assume that they are either fake or the directions were not properly followed.
Fantastic used it for ages
Switched from comfortis as my cats wouldn't eat the tablet they kept spitting it out
Saw the horrible reviews despite the reviews about killing pets I decided to do my research they have never been sued or invstigated
Saw enough to ignore the negatives and put it down to people wanting to push their preference of flea prevention
Tried it and it was fantastic worked amazing highly recommend pets are fine and healthy
So far works very well for us.
We rescued a 3 year old cat from the local animal shelter. She (Stoli) had an ear infection and that is all that was wrong. Vet suggested we use the Revolution. So far it has worked great. Easy to apply and our cat just lays there. Ear cleared up, no fleas, no tics and the best part it also treats heartworm. Don't need a separate pill for that. Found an online supplier at a much cheaper cost and we ordered a years worth. The exact same thing the vet was selling here was close to 2 1/2 times higher than what I paid.
In general the medicine is very good but please shop around on line and save some big money.
My cat died after I used Revolution
I used Revolution on my beautiful cat who, up until then, had no health issues. He went bald on his legs, became lethargic, lost his appetite and became withdrawn. My vet did his best to save him but he died. His death was unnecessary. I've now read so many postings of the same thing after owners treated their cats and dogs. Why is this product still being sold and why was it approved in the first place?

Have used this for years and recommend highly
This review is for my experience only. I have used this for approx 11-12 yrs. When I first started with my cats one would be lethargic for a day or two..the other cat never reacted to the meds. They are indoor/outdoor cats and when the neighbors dogs and cats were infested with fleas mine shade none. Works great on worms as well...mine got them after a hurricane because we were unable to get their normal prescription . Once the vet opened and we got the meds-----worms gone. 1 more positive ---this summer my neighbor's indoor cat was bei...ng eaten with fleas. I gave her one of my dosages and the cat was better. NOW, bad experiences my Mom's car had a BAD reaction to the first dose..she now only uses frontline. 2nd bad experience..I recently gave my one her monthly application, but I didnt get it in the proper spot, hence she was able to scratch at it --raw and open wound. Overall I highly recommend this product---two bads in over 10 years ....Not bad!!
My cat is experiencing Ataxia and Loss of Appetite
I'm so scared for her, the breeder we got her from put Revolution on her for the first time (she had always had good experiences before this and was shocked to find 1% are affected by reactions when I called her) before we took her home and I'm scared she might die because of it. She was wobbly since Thursday night until Saturday, then Saturday night she has been lying on her side, she can still move her legs and cries when she tries to get up. My poor baby hasn't eaten solids since Wednesday. It is now Monday and I'm worried she will not make ...it. She is a 2 and a half year old Persian that only weighs 2.8 KG. I'm so upset that Revolution was used on her as we never put that crap on our other animals, they are treated naturally with home remedies and are as healthy as can be.

Don’t waste your money.
EXPENSIVE AND NOT WORKING for my cats!!! I’ve contacted Zoetis and all they offer is apologies. I’ve used this product in the past, spent hundreds of dollars and it has become a failure. My vet also admitted to receiving several complaints from other pet owners. Don’t bother wasting your money. I have been fighting off these evil parasites for over two months now. My pets have suffered and Zoetis has done nothing but sympathized in their response.
Hurts My Cat!!!! Are you sure this is okay???....
The fleas and ticks are completely gone and they don't bother her for months after application.
This is the second time I have used it in 2 years and I Will NEVER NEVER RECOMMEND IT OR BUY IT AGAIN!!!!!
My cat starts acting like she is on a hallucigenic for 3-4 days after both applications.
She can't jump up onto counters to her food bowl nor can she jump onto the windowsill to get in or out. If you touch her head she acts like you are trying to kill her so I know that it is causing extreme pain and migraines.
All she does is hide or wal...
Killed my cat
Used Revolution on my cat (2 1/2 years ago) after my vet started selling it instead of Frontline which I had normally used. My cat was distressed after application of the first dose. I wish I had taken heed of this as he died of a seizure/stroke after the second dose. Do not use the product on your cat. My vet doesn't say much when I tell him that I believe that Revolution killed my cat. Funny enough though, he doesn't sell it anymore!
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
