My cat only lives indoors. Is parasite protection necessary?
Parasites are not outdoor-only. Fleas, ticks, ear mites, intestinal worms, and heartworms can get into any home. Parasites hitchhike indoors on other pets or creatures, on shoes and clothes, or get inside through doors and windows. Cats and kittens of all lifestyles (indoor-only, indoor/outdoor, outdoor-only) can regularly come in contact with parasites and their health risks. With one monthly dose, Revolution Plus provides broad-spectrum coverage against common pests that both indoor and outdoor cats need.
How do I apply Revolution Plus to my cat?
Revolution Plus is a simple-to-apply, quick-drying, small-volume, monthly topical solution—so there’s no need to hassle with larger volume topicals or giving your cat a pill!
What are the side effects of Revolution Plus for cats?
The most commonly reported side effects in clinical trials were temporary loss of appetite and drowsiness. No side effects were noted when Revolution Plus was used along with commonly prescribed veterinary products. While there was a low incidence of side effects in clinical trials, it’s important to report to your veterinarian any unusual signs or activity in your cat or kitten after applying the product.
Is Revolution Plus safe for cats and kittens?
Revolution Plus is proven safe for cats and kittens as young as 8 weeks of age, weighing 2.8 lbs or greater. The safe use of Revolution Plus has not been established in kittens less than 8 weeks old or breeding, pregnant, or lactating cats. Since one of the active ingredients (sarolaner) in Revolution Plus is a member of the isoxazoline class, use with caution in cats with a history of neurologic disorders such as seizures. Revolution Plus has been administered in conjunction with numerous cat medications and may be given to cats with adult heartworm infection.
How can I decide which pest protection is best for my cat?
It’s always best to talk with your veterinarian about the right protection for your furry friend. But a good start is looking at our comparison chart to see how the Revolution Plus label compares to that of other pest preventatives. Only Revolution Plus provides broad-spectrum, 6-in-1 protection against fleas, ticks (black-legged or deer tick, Gulf Coast tick, and American dog tick), ear mites, roundworms, hookworms and heartworms, with unique dual action against fleas and ear mites.
Are ticks common in cats?
Though certain ticks are more prominent in certain areas (i.e., Gulf Coast tick in Southeastern and mid-Atlantic states; American dog tick east of the Rocky Mountains and Pacific coast; black-legged or deer tick across eastern U.S.), cat owners should be vigilant with year-round tick and other pest protection in all 50 states to ensure cats of all lifestyles (indoor-only, indoor/outdoor, outdoor-only) are properly protected with broad-spectrum preventative medicine such as Revolution Plus.

Firmly press the cap down to puncture the seal on the Revolution Plus tube; a clicking sound will confirm that the cap has successfully punctured the seal. Remove the cap and check to ensure that the tip of the tube is open. To administer the product, part the hair on the back of the animal at the base of the neck in front of the shoulder blades until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the tube 3 or 4 times to empty its entire contents directly on to the skin in one spot. Keeping the tube squeezed, drag it away from the liquid and lift to remove. Check the tube to ensure that it is empty. Do not massage the product into the skin. Due to alcohol content, do not apply to broken skin. Avoid contact between the product and fingers. Do not apply when the hair coat is wet. Stiff hair, clumping of hair, hair discoloration, or a slight powdery residue may be observed at the treatment site in some cats. These effects are temporary and do not affect the safety or effectiveness of the product. Discard empty tubes in your ordinary household refuse.
