We monthly treat all of our cats with Revolution and recommend to our new owners that they look into the benefits of these treatments. Revolution is a monthly treatment for your kittens and cats to protect them from certain parasites. There are other types of parasite treatments available, so you might be wondering why we decided to use Revolution. Frontline, for example, is another well known treatment. We chose to use Revolution for two main reasons:
- Our cats are indoor only cats making Frontline's tick treatment unnecessary for our cats.
- Revolution protects against more parasites than Frontline.
Revolution protects against fleas, heartworm (which they can get from mosquito bites), ear mites, hookworms, and roundworms. It may seem like an indoor cat would have no need for treatment against such parasites, but we learned by experience that they do. For example, you can bring fleas into a house that has no fleas on a suitcase or a rug purchased from a garage sale. Mosquitoes can obviously get into the house, making the risk for heartworms a possibility. And the list goes on. For these reasons we have decided to treat all our cats with Revolution and so far we are very pleased with it.
