Revolution PLUS is a topical solution which offers broad external and internal parasite protection.
Revolution Plus for Cats is indicated for the prevention of heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis. It kills adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) and is indicated for the treatment and prevention of flea infestations, the treatment and control of tick infestations, the treatment and control of ear mites (Otodectes cynotis) infestations, and the treatment and control of roundworm (Toxocara cati) and intestinal hookworm (Ancylostoma tubaeforme) infections for one month in cats and kittens 8 weeks and older, and weighing 2.8 pounds (1.25 kg) or greater.
How does Revolution Plus work?
Revolution Plus contains two active ingredients, selamectin and sarolaner, which absorbs into the skin and enter the bloodstream. Combined, these ingredients start killing fleas within 6 hours of administration, begin to kill ticks within 24 hours of administration, prevent the development of heartworm, and eliminate and control ear mites and other worms.
Flea Treatment and Prevention
For the treatment and prevention of flea infestations, REVOLUTION PLUS may begin at anytime of year. REVOLUTION PLUS should be administered year-round at monthly intervals or begin at least one month before fleas become active. If a cat is already infested with fleas when the first dose of REVOLUTION PLUS is administered, adult fleas on the animal are killed before they can lay eggs. However, an environmental infestation may persist for a short time after beginning treatment with REVOLUTION PLUS because of the development of adult fleas from eggs that were laid prior to the initiation of treatment.
Tick Treatment and Control
For the treatment and control of infestations with Ixodes scapularis, Amblyomma maculatum and Dermacentor variabilus, REVOLUTION PLUS may begin at any time of year. REVOLUTION PLUS should be administered year-round at monthly intervals or begin at least one month before the ticks become active.
For the prevention of heartworm disease, REVOLUTION PLUS must be administered on a monthly basis. REVOLUTION PLUS should be administered year-round or at least within one month after the animal's first exposure to mosquitoes and monthly thereafter until the end of the mosquito season. The final dose must be given within one month after the last exposure to mosquitoes. If a dose missed and a monthly interval between dosing is exceeded then immediate administration of REVOLUTION PLUS and resumption of monthly dosing will minimise the opportunity for the development of adult heartworms. When replacing another monthly heartworm preventive product in a heartworm disease prevention program, the first dose of REVOLUTION PLUS must be given within a month of the last dose of the former medication.
Selamectin, one of the active ingredients in REVOLUTION PLUS, is a macrocryclic lactone compound. These compounds effectively prevent the development of adult heartworms when administered to cats within one month of exposure to infective (L3) Dirofilaria immitis larvae. This product effectively eliminates the tissue stage of heartworm larvae for a month after infection. Cats with unknown heartworm history that test negative prior to the initiation of REVOLUTION PLUS may be harbouring pre-patent infections at the time REVOLUTION PLUS was started. Testing such animals 3-4 months after initiation of REVOLUTION PLUS would be necessary to confirm their negative heartworm status.
At the discretion of the veterinarian, cats > 6 months of age may be tested to determine the presence of existing heartworm infections before beginning treatment with REVOLUTION PLUS. Cats already infected with adult heartworms can be given REVOLUTION PLUS monthly to prevent further infections.
Ear Mite Treatment and Control
For the treatment of ear mite (Otodectes cynotis) infestations, REVOLUTION PLUS should be administered once as a single topical dose. Do not administer into the ear canal. Monthly use of REVOLUTION PLUS will control any subsequent ear mite infestations. Cleansing of the infested ears is recommended to remove debris.
Nematode Treatment and Control
For the treatment of roundworm (Toxocara cati) and intestinal hookworm (ancylostoma tubaeforme) infections, REVOLUTION PLUS should be applied once as a single topical dose. Monthly use of REVOLUTION PLUS will control any subsequent roundworm and intestinal hookworm infections.
