Revolution for Dogs and Cats - Revolution Flea and Heartworm Prevention | PetCareRx
Pfizer has studied the use of Revolution flea control in both cats and dogs infested with adult heartworms and has not reported adverse effects. The Pfizer Revolution literature adds: "Hypersensitivity reactions have not been observed in dogs with patent heartworm infections administered 3 times the recommended dose of Revolution."
Pets allowed to lick the solution, particularly cats, may react by salivating profusely (frothing at the mouth) or even vomiting. This is not normally harmful, however, excessive ingestion of the product can result in signs of toxicity, so it is not advised to let pets consume the product. It should be noted that Pfizer has studied the oral ingestion of Revolution flea control in both cats and dogs (because accidents do happen) and did find it to be safe to eat at label doses (6mg/kg). The literature states: "Oral administration of Revolution at the recommended topical dose in 5- to 8-month-old beagles did not cause any adverse reactions." Similar findings were also found for cats, except that cats sometimes vomited or salivated.
