You may not be able to wrap your adorable cat in bubble wrap to keep him/her safe from the outside world, but we are getting better at giving strong defense against potential problems.
One of the most serious risks to our pets is parasites. Parasites are a nuisance, whether it’s mosquito-borne heartworm illness, Lyme disease in the tick population, or fleas in all their glory. BudgetVetCare is thrilled to be able to provide Zoetis’ Revolution PLUS, the latest and greatest in parasite control for felines.
Why do Cats need flea, paralysis tick, and other parasite protection?
Fleas may be small, but they may quickly become a major issue. Fleas can rapidly grow if left untreated, giving your cat discomfort and leading to severe issues such as flea dermatitis (itching) and secondary skin diseases. But did you know that 95% of the flea problem isn’t on your cat, but rather in and around your home?
To avoid infestations, Revolution PLUS works quickly on adult fleas as well as their eggs and larvae that hide inside and outside the home.Revolution PLUS also lowers the symptoms of flea allergic dermatitis, providing your cat with immediate relief.
Paralysis ticks can be lethal for cats if they go untreated or are misdiagnosed, as well as emotionally and financially draining. A female paralysis tick bite is all it takes to kill a cat, therefore continuing prevention is the best approach to keep your cat safe.
Revolution PLUS eliminates paralysis ticks before their toxicity takes effect and protects your cat for 35 days, so even if you apply Revolution PLUS late, your cat will be safe.
Revolution as a Strong Foundation
For years, Revolution has been our go-to product for parasite prevention in cats. The key ingredient, Selamectin, has long been lauded as a safe and very effective treatment for a wide range of bothersome and potentially harmful parasites.
Revolution PLUS: Even Better
In recent years, a new class of flea and tick preventatives has hit the market. The Isoxazoline class of parasite preventatives has proven to be an even more effective method of parasite control. Oral flea and tick treatments for dogs, such as NexGard , Advantage Multi, Bravecto, or Credelio, may be familiar to you. All of them are members of the novel Isoxazoline medication class.
In addition to the numerous Revolution benefits, Isoxazoline flea and tick protection were not available for cats until now.
Revolution PLUS is a new topical preventative for cats that combines the tried-and-true Selamectin with the powerful Sarolaner.
The once-monthly topical treatment, which is simple to use, has given our feline patients protection against:
- Fleas & Ticks
- Biting Lice
- Ear mites
In addition to everything Revolution accomplishes, Revolution PLUS has a faster flea kill, as well as support for killing and controlling:
- The black-legged tick
- The Gulf-coast tick
- The American Dog tick
We recommend that both indoor and outdoor cats take parasite prevention on a monthly basis throughout the year. Of course, no one-size-fits-all solution exists for every pet. If you have any doubt about choosing the right pet parasite prevention and treatment, please contact us so that we can explore the best choice for your furry friend.
