Revolution® Topical Solution should be applied as directed by your veterinarian. This medication should be administered at every 30 day intervals, year-round to guarantee complete protection. For cats over 22 lbs, use the appropriate combination of tubes to ensure complete protection.
Immediately before use, open the pouch and remove the tube. Hold tube at the crimped end with the cap in the upright position (tip up). Firmly press the cap down until you hear a ‘click’ sound, which signals that the cap has punctured the applicator seal. Remove the cap and check to be sure that the tip of the tube is open. Always keep the tube in the upright position until ready to use to prevent leaking.
Part the fur on the back of the cat’s neck at the base of the head, until skin is visible. Place the tube tip vertically against the skin. Squeeze the tube and gently apply the solution in one spot. While keeping the tube squeezed, drag it away from the liquid and lift up to remove. Do not massage into the skin. Do not apply when the haircoat is wet. For the first 30 minutes after application ensure the cats cannot lick the product from application sites on themselves or other treated animals.
Do not contact or allow children to contact the application site until dry. Wash hands and contacted skin thoroughly with soap and water immediately after application.
Give the dose as soon as you remember, unless it is time for the next dose. Do not double dose. If your cat has missed a dose please consult with your veterinarian.
Revolution® Topical Solution is generally well tolerated in cats when given at the usual dose. Stiff hair, a damp appearance of the hair, or a powdery residue may be observed at the application site.
