If you haven’t already heard, there is a new 6-in-one preventative on the market for cats. Revolution Plus, released in Australia in 2019, builds on the trusted legacy of Revolution for Cats and contains two active ingredients - selamectin and sarolaner. These ingredients combine to deliver double the flea killing power and gives your cat the parasite protection it needs.
What Does Revolution Plus Protect My Cat Against?
Revolution Plus takes care of everything that your cat was protected against with Revolution, but with the addition of sarolaner, now protects your cat against deadly paralysis ticks as well. A single tick is enough to cause life threatening paralysis in cats.
Revolution Plus with TWO active ingredients
- Kills adult fleas, eggs and larvae
- Reduces signs of flea allergy dermatitis
- Kills deadly paralysis ticks
- Treats and controls ear mites
- Treats and controls roundworm and hookworm
- Treats and controls biting lice
- 100% effective in preventing the development of heartworm in cats
But My Cat Doesn't Go Outside
You might believe that because your cat doesn’t go outside that they don’t require a flea and tick preventative like Revolution Plus. But fleas and ticks don’t only find their way onto your pet while they are outside. You can inadvertently bring fleas or ticks into your home on your shoes or clothes, or they simply find their own way in. The broad spectrum ingredients in Revolution Plus work against fleas and mites to deliver double the flea-killing power.
Is It As Easy to Use As Revolution?
You bet it is! Revolution Plus for cats is a simple to apply, quick drying topical application that you apply once a month. That means there is no need to remember which month your cat is due for their flea and tick treatment or how long it has been since you wrestled with them to give them a worming tablet - just one application once a month and your cat is covered! And just in case you are a few days late, Revolution Plus continues to protect your cat against deadly paralysis ticks for 35 days.
I've Tried Other Products, But I Can't Get Rid of All The Fleas
That might be because some products on the market only kill the adult fleas or the flea larvae, leaving the flea eggs to hatch and the cycle to continue. Revolution Plus puts an end to the flea life cycle by killing fleas at all three life stages with its dual action formula.
