Revolution general information

What is Revolution used for?

Revolution is a topical treatment for cats for prevention and control of flea infestations, ear mite infestations and infection with the parasitic roundworm. Revolution is effective against all stages of the flea, including the eggs and larvae. It is also effective in controlling flea allergy dermatitis, which can be irritating and cause itching in cats sensitive to flea bites, particularly the saliva of the flea, and can cause hair loss and eczema. Roundworm is an intestinal parasite that causes diarrhoea, weight loss and poor condition, particularly in kittens, and can be a hazard to people. Ear mites live in the ear canal of infected cats causing irritation and a black wax-like discharge, and are responsible for the majority of ear infections in cats. 

How does Revolution work?

Revolution contains selamectin, an antiparasitic drug that acts as an Insecticide (effective against parasitic insects like fleas and ear mites) and antihelminth (effective against parasitic worms like roundworm). When you apply Revolution to your cat’s skin, it spreads across the skin and accumulates in the sebaceous glands (oil glands in the skin) and the selamectin is rapidly absorbed through the skin into the circulation, so that it is effective against internal and external parasites. selamectin in Revolution is a neuromuscular blocker that blocks nerve transmission and muscular contraction, causing paralysis and eventual death to the parasite. The fleas and ear mites ingest selamectin when they feed on a cat’s blood; parasitic worms will lose their grip on the intestinal wall while feeding on blood and pass out in the cat’s stools. 

What does Revolution contain?

Revolution contains the active ingredient selamectin (60mg/mL), an antiparasitic drug used to control internal and external parasites in cats. It also contains dipropylene glycol methyl ether, isopropyl alcohol, butylated hydroxytoluene.

Do not use on sick, weak or underweight cats
