Revolution for Dogs - Heartworm Medicine | Discount Pet Medication
It sounds like your vet gave your cats Capstar to kill existing fleas on pets. Once all of the fleas are dead, you’ll need a monthly preventative flea medication for your cats. You can use flea collars, pills, or topical treatments like Advantage, Frontline, or Revolution. Some of these will also work on other parasites like heartworm and ticks.

We also carry to traditional flea and tick mediations such as Frontline, which is a topical flea and tick medication that is applied monthly. For cats we suggest Revolution, which is also a topical flea and tick medication. Revolution has the added benefit of protecting your cat or dog from heartworm and it also provides control of certain intestinal parasites. For outdoor cats or cats who like to hunt revolution is an ideal choice because it will de worm them as well.
Revolution (Selamectin) - Flea and Heartworm Treatment | PetCareRx
Revolution is a safe and simple monthly topical medication used to protect your pet from heartworms, fleas, and ear mites. It also protects dogs from ticks and sarcoptic mange and cats from roundworms and hookworms. Revolution for Dogs and Cats requires a prescription from your veterinarian. (3 Pack = 3 doses which lasts 3 months.)Revolution enters the lipid layer of the skin as well as the blood stream of your pet. Fleas do not need to bite your pet to be affected by the medication but ticks do. Revolution can be a very effective method for flea control but is not recommended as the only method of tick control for dogs. Cats are not able to contract Lyme disease and River Road Veterinary Clinic does not carry any tick repellants for cats, so Revolution is a good choice as an “all-in-one” topical medication for your cats. Keep in mind, however, that ticks do need to bite your animal to be affected by the selamectin, but should be killed before they are able to transmit disease. Unfortunately, Revolution is not labeled for protection against the deer tick. The Scalibor collar makes a great choice for additional tick protection in combination with topical Revolution.
