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.

Gives my dog seizures - Revolution for dogs


I have a diary for my 5 year old dog. Every 3 three months for the past 2 years he has seized.
The penny has recently dropped.. it’s the revolution.
Many dogs and cats have died please research This well. It’s pesticide..
No more seizures since stopping revolution:)

Works for us


We have been using Revolution for large dogs for years. We find it easy to use - just squeeze the tube out onto the back of her neck and it's done. There's stickers for the calendar included.to remind us when to dose her. We have never had a problem with parasites or fleas and we get bush animals and wild rabbits visiting our block all the time. Our dog doesn't have any reaction other than not being a fan of the cold sensation of the liquid being squirted onto her skin. We do have to be careful with the timing though, it needs to be done after the kids have gone to bed, so that they don't pat her when the product is wet.

Still have fleas !


Brought for me dogs and cats.
They have more fleas now they what they did before putting it on. Will never use again!!!

Wasn't impressed


Both my staffys had a really bad flea problem was told by vet Zoetis was a great product as it would kill the eggs as well. It did work but it took three days which made it a very stressful couple of days thinking I had wasted my time. Would not buy again.

Great stuff!


We have used Revolution for our 2 Rottweilers for the past 4 years. We have found revolution to be fantastic. Never had an issue with fleas or any other parasites. Also, our dogs have never had a bad reaction to Revolution like I have heard others have from other treatments. We will continue to treat our dogs with Revolution! Fantastic product!

Worked for my dogs



Would not recommend.


We were told to buy this as it was supposed to kill the fleas eggs as well as fleas. My dogs ( Maltese shitz) now have more fleas than ever. will definitely be switching back to advocate.

Fleas have now appeared


Previously used comfirtis, which was terrific! That was out of stock and recommendation for revolution was given. Applied it to 5 dogs. Two are small indoor mini dachshunds and 3 are outdoor large dogs. All of my dogs now have fleas. I am supplementing with capstar till the comfortis comes in. Wont use this again, wont recommend to anyone.

Caused extreme side effects


Switched to Revolution due to cost effectiveness and should not have been focused on cost. Administered Revolution on my small poodle and two days later had a very sick dog. He exhibited signs of lethargy, was disoriented, could hardly walk, had a fever, and yelped in pain when touched. After a couple days, some antibiotics and pain meds later, he is back to normal. I would not recommend switching to Revolution if you have been using a different topical that works without side effects. I switched due to cost effectiveness but spent more on vet bills due to the side effects than over 2 years worth of the product.

So far so good but need time to prove


I used twice, once a month for my four months old poodle.
She has no flea but I found mild ear mite problem recently. Not sure if it is really ear mite.
I will continue to try the product because it provide protection against heartworm which other products cannot.

Revolution for Dogs

I have an almost 5 year old male Australian silky terrior and have been using revolution spot on for the past few months. In this time i have noticed a steap decline in his health. Ie. Constant skin irritation, upset tummy, diarrhea, poor immune system (2 infections), tremours & sudden mood changes.. we've been to a couple of vets now and followed all directions precisely yet still my boy is noticeably uncomfortable. It wasn't until tonight when parousing the internet (again) searching for possible answers did I come across a site that listed ALL of the same symptoms as side effects of revolution!! Worse still in my case was the list of more susseptable breeds (small breeds especially & definitely silkys). How could i possibly have overlooked revolution to be the cause? More to the point, how could trained veterinarians not pick up on this AND continue to 'prescribe' such a thing to a pup that it very obviously does not agree with.
I have literally been poisoning my bestfriend with pesticides at the direction of "pet health professionals" and SO ARE YOU!! I have hurt him, honestly believing i was helping him!
I'm honestly distraught. Please beware
