FDA Approves Revolution Plus
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Revolution® Plus (selamectin and sarolaner topical solution), a new combination topical product providing 6-in-1 parasite protection against fleas, ticks (Black-legged or deer tick, Gulf Coast tick, and American dog tick), ear mites, roundworms, hookworms and heartworms for cats and kittens as young as eight weeks of age and weighing 2.8 pounds or greater. Revolution Plus combines the proven broad-spectrum protection of selamectin with the advanced flea- and tick-killing power of sarolaner. This first-of-its-kind, next-generation product exemplifies Zoetis’ dedication to innovation in parasiticides and builds upon the 20-year trusted legacy of feline Revolution, which veterinarians have consistently made the number one prescribed parasiticide for cats.
Broad-spectrum parasite protection is important to consider for every cat of every lifestyle, every month. Revolution Plus will provide the protection both indoor and outdoor cats need. With this unique product from Zoetis, we can now provide higher-quality care with one monthly topical dose, giving pet owners peace of mind, while protecting cats and kittens from a wide range of external and internal pests.
Revolution Plus is a simple-to-apply, quick-drying, small-volume topical solution administered once monthly. It kills fleas before they can lay eggs, kills ticks for a full month and is proven safe for cats and kittens as young as eight weeks of age.
