Has anyone tried Revolution Flea & Tick control for cats? If so...can you put it on them every now & then or does it have to be monthly since it controls several types of worms? I've used Advantage on my cats when they've had a problem with fleas but not on a monthy basis.

Revolution can be used every now and then......if there are worms they should be eliminated upon using the Revolution regardless if you apply it monthly or only every several months.

Revolution is a WONDERFUL product.
Unfortunatly we do not sell it at our practice (I wish they would.)

It last every 30 days, but just like any other flea treatment if you do not need it for fleas after one treatment you don't have to continue using it, but it's nice to because it guards against all these every month.

Adult Fleas
Flea Eggs
Ear Mites
Roundworms and Hookworms
Heartworm Prevention

If you were to not use Revolution you might have to buy the flea treatment, ear mite medicain, constant deworming and heart worm prevention seperatly.
Revolution for 6 months is about $48.00
Buying the Heart worm Prevention and Flea prevent alone from other products can easily be DOUBLE that depending on where you buy it.
Remember revolution is a preventative for heart worm, round worm and hookworms, not a treatment for those animals suffering with a current infestation. Revolution would need to be treated the same way just like any animal needed to recieve heartguard or proheart.

Good luck!

Weve been using it on gibson for almost a year. When we first decided to try it he was "infested" with fleas and flea eggs. He was always itching and had scabs all over his neck. It didnt matter how many times we cleaned him with the flea comb (he never went out side) they kept coming back. So we decided to try it. By the time his next vet visit a month later he only had a couple on the comb and no flea eggs. We used it one more month and they were all gone until the following summer. Then we just restarted the process. And he has been flea free since. And he is a much happier kitty for it.
