Understanding Revolution Plus
What is Revolution Plus?
Revolution Plus is a comprehensive parasite protection product highly trusted by veterinarians.
Its unique formula provides coverage against common harmful parasites for indoor and outdoor cats and kittens.
How is it Different from Revolution?
Although Revolution has provided reliable protection for years, Revolution Plus takes it further. It retains the proven legacy protection of Revolution.
Still, it also protects against ticks, broadening the scope of its pest protection with unique dual action against fleas and ear mites.
The Broad-Spectrum Protection of Revolution Plus
The Range of Parasites Revolution Plus Protects Against
Revolution Plus provides broad-spectrum protection. It covers many parasites that can harm your cat, including fleas, ticks, ear mites, roundworms, hookworms, and heartworms.
Indoor Cats and Parasite Protection
“But my cat lives indoors, is parasite protection essential?” The answer is a resounding yes! Parasites are not exclusive to the outdoors. They can easily hitch a ride on shoes, clothes, or pets or find their way in through doors and windows.
Thus, both indoor and outdoor cats must receive regular, comprehensive parasite protection like Revolution Plus.
Geographic and Lifestyle Factors
Ticks and Their Prevalence in Cats
Ticks are more prevalent in cats than you might think. Certain ticks are more common in specific areas, but ticks and other pests are a year-round concern in all 50 states.
Geographic Distribution of Ticks
For instance, the Gulf Coast tick is common in southeastern and mid-Atlantic states. The American dog tick is found east of the Rocky Mountains and along the Pacific coast. The black-legged or deer tick is located across the eastern US.
Lifestyle Factors and Tick Exposure
Regardless of whether your cat lives indoors only, splits its time between indoors and outdoors, or lives outdoors only, it is exposed to ticks and other pests.
Regularly using broad-spectrum preventative medicine like Revolution Plus is the best way to protect your cat.
