Revolution Flea Control Review
Manufactured by Pfizer Animal Health, Revolution Flea Control for cats and dogs is a product available only by prescription from veterinarians. Through once-a-month liquid topical applications, it controls not only fleas, but heartworms, ear mites, ticks, sarcoptic mange, and also protects cats from roundworms and hookworms.
Revolution is first FDA-approved topically applied parasiticide medication for cats and dogs. It is safe to use on puppies as young as 6 weeks old and kittens as young as 8 weeks old. The majority of pets need only one tube applied once a month, and because the dosage is so low, the quick-drying medication can be applied to a single spot on the skin.
The vast majority of users report excellent results with Revolution. Many people use the word “love” in their reviews! Often mentioned is the ease of use of Revolution, in particular that it doesn’t leave a large greasy streak on their pet’s back like other products that are applied at several spots on the skin.
Cat and dog owners equally report that if their pets had previously exhibited skin or internal sensitivity to other products, they had no reaction to Revolution. Cat owners in particular mention how easy it is to use on cats that dislike medicine. Some owners mention a slight odor at first, but that it dissipates almost immediately. Revolution presents none of the side effects that often bother the human parents of pets such as smells in the house or stains on the furniture from greasy residue, not to mention the discomfort of their animals. Overall, pet owners are quite happy with Revolution and with their success using it on their cats and dogs.
Revolution Flea Control for cats and dogs is easy to apply, protects against more parasites and insects than most similar medicines, and pets have very little adverse reaction to it. While we always recommend looking to completely natural products, Revolution uses such a low dose that we are comfortable using it. Revolution comes highly recommended from both vets and pet owners, and would be an excellent choice for any dog or cat owner.
The best place to get a good deal on Revolution is going to be through PetMeds. Simply place your order and they will contact your veterinarian and obtain the necessary prescription authorization for you.
