Superior to Frontline Plus!

  • Sep 18, 2011
  • by
A little over a year ago, at the behest of our veterinarion, we made the switch from Frontline Plus to a product called Revolution Flea and Tick Control For Cats.  This is a product manufactured by Pfizer Animal Health and neither my wife or I  had never heard of it.  Our vet was adament that for our cat Rascal this product was superior to Frontline in a number of different ways.

First of all Rascal is definitely an outdoor cat. She spends several hours a day outside lounging in the sun, chasing squirrels and birds and looking for mice. As the vet explained it cats who spend lots of time outside are more likely to be exposed to more than fleas and ticks. Revolution fights all forms of parasitic infection, effectively making the cat's blood poison to the various parasites that might attack her. Unlike Frontline Plus, Revolution also fights heartworms, earmites and other parasites that might attack your cat.  For us this was a very powerful argument to make the switch.  Revolution also protects against ringworms and tapeworms. The bottom line seems to be that this is simply a better product.

My wife and I apply Revolution Flea and Tick Control to Rascal every 4 or 5 weeks.  We find that as advertised this product is extremely effective for just about a month and then we begin to see her scratching again.  Revolution is a bit more expensive than Frontline but in order to help to mitigate that our vet throws in an extra dose whenever we buy a box of 6.  From both personal experience with this product and from the literature that we have seen my wife and I are convinced that Revolution Flea and Tick Control For Cats is definitely the way to go.   Very highly recommended!
