Have been using with my dogs for 15+ years
I have used this for all my dogs for over 15 years without any adverse events. Easy to apply. Only downside is that it doesn't prevent ticks or kill existing fleas. In saying this, if my dogs acquired fleas, there has never been an infestation in my house. Certain packs will also have Canex for intestinal worms so that is a bonus.

Revolution for Dogs
We gave the topical revolution to our 7 pound, 9 year old morkie once a month in 2018. We put it on her back every month, and for two months she acted like she was sore. The third time we gave it to her, she went downhill quickly. For a few days she turned vicious when we pet her back, and her back was hunched over while she was walking. A few days after we gave it to her she started vomiting every few hours for three days. On the fourth day she vomited every 5 minutes all day. We rushed her to the vet. The vet thought we were crazy when we tol...d her we thought it was the revolution. The vet took our dog’s blood and ran a bunch of tests. She told us she thought our dog might have cancer. She sent us home with Anti-Nausea medication for our dog. That night, she had a 45 second long seizure. She was very lethargic and unresponsive. The next day, we had to go back to the vet because the vet wanted to run more blood tests. She then told us our dog did not have cancer and the reaction was from the revolution. It took our dog two weeks to recover. It was a very scary and frustrating experience. We realized the topical revolution had been burning our dog’s back. The next month, we tried the revolution chewable. A few hours later our dog was throwing up every few minutes. We rushed her to the vet and got Anti-Nausea medication. Thankfully, she recovered. However we are no longer giving her heart worm medication. We tried to prevent an illness with something that ended up causing an illness. If you gave your dog the topical revolution that goes on their back and they are having a bad reaction, use Dawn dish soap to wash it off. Our new vet recommended this, and we used it a few hours after applying the topical. It worked and our dog stopped having reactions, as the topical was washed off and stopped absorbing into the skin.

Hard on Digestive Tract
The first two application resulted in moderate loose bowl movements. The third application however has resulted in a week long bout of liquid stool and weight loss, as they have been restricted to a rice diet until the stool hardens. Not impressed with the product if it going to be this harsh every application.

Great product when used correctly
I don't use this monthly because my dog has yearly pro heart injections and it is technically a pesticide, my vet agreed it doesn't need to be used monthly, only as required considering pro heart is being used.
I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because my dog hates the smell and it's a struggle to make her stay for a treatment because it's so pungent she knows it's not natural, it's also a lot of liquid for the Large teal tube to be dispensed.
I do use it whenever I encounter fleas or suspect mites, on two separate occasions my dog picked up a few fl...

If you love your pet do not use Revolutions flea control
If you love your pet Please stay clear of Revolution Flea and Heartworm medication..... Revolution has deem safe their flea meds for puppies under 5 lbs and 6 weeks of age ..... This is not safe My little 6 week old Yorkie was given the flea control prescribed By a vet and suffered seizures 15 mins later. The flea control has changed my playful puppy into just a shell of herself . She was throwing up , leaning against walls just to walk and suffered 10 more seizure all within 4 days. She no long ate or drank I had to feed her through a syringe ...and gave her Dextrose every 8 hrs just to keep her blood sugar up. I took her to several vets and because Revolution adsorbs so fast into their systems there was nothing that could be done to save her the damage was already done. My little Baby Girl Yorkie Died 4 days later .... My Vet only words were Revolution is safe because the company deems it safe and he said I am so sorry she was just one of the unlucky ones...... I will not except that as an excuse I have spent 2,000 on my baby Girl Yorkie between adoption fees and vet bills . I wan this company to pay .. They killed my baby Girl Yorkie and I will never have her back.. These companies are all about the money they do not care about what these products to Pets.........

Near death experience
Our Irish terrier was given a dose of the brown Revolution treatment, a smaller dose than recommended for his weight, to the back of his neck on Sunday afternoon and was fine until Tuesday morning when he could not raise his head from the bed. He could barely open his eyes. He was lethargic to the extreme. He could not focus and his eyes were lifeless. He would not eat or drink. My son watched him stand very awkwardly and stare blankly at the wall ahead of him for almost an hour before he took him to the vet. He could stand up but not move his...rear quarters, just rotate the front half of his body. The vet did a full blood screen but found nothing outstanding. When I picked him up after work at 4pm he did not react to my arrival and did not get up, only just opening his eyes. We thought we were bringing him home to die. For the next 3 days he has only lain on his bed. He has had difficulty locating the chicken we have been giving him. He will not drink water, only milk. We are seeing a gradual improvement but he is still a very sick dog. I have never given him Revolution before. I cannot believe I have inadvertently caused my dearest friend so much harm. I will never be using this product again. It is terrible to see such a charismatic and lively animal reduced to this state.

Does not kill flees
We rescued a new pet dog (cavslier king charles) and took straight to vet first thing that am for check over. They recommend revolution. We then took him to a grooming palour midday to be groomed. That night well after he had been washed and was dry we applied zoetis revolution. 5 days later he is badly infected with flees. Every thing that he is sleeping on and in was new the following day after being treated. We are totally upset and have to purchase another product tomorrow when shops open. We had no old bedding, anything as no other pets and every thing new. No excuses, nothing came with him, new bedding, new kennel, bowls ext. Rubbish product.

There is a small minority of reviewers who found that the Revolution treatments worked well with their pets. However, in these instances pets never experienced a negative or dangerous reaction.
Other reviewers didn’t report any adverse effects as a result of administering the medication to their pets, however they also noted that their pets became infected with fleas or heartworm. This clearly signalled the ineffectiveness of the product to these reviewers.
Other pet owners reported that their beloved pets had seizures, couldn’t eat or move, and for some animals this has tragically resulted in death.
