Animal Hospital of North Asheville is now offering Revolution Plus to provide your cat with the best and most effective protection against parasites!
Revolution Plus is a simple to apply, quick-drying, monthly topical product that offers protection for cats and kittens against fleas, ear mites, roundworms, hookworms, heartworms, and now additionally ticks.
Parasites do not just cause health issues in cats that go outside; indoor-only cats can be affected too. Fleas, ticks, intestinal parasites and mosquitoes (which cause heartworms) can be carried in on our clothing or shoes, other pets, and come in through doors and windows. We see indoor-only cats in Asheville being affected by all of the above.
REVOLUTION PLUS is a prescription medication. Before purchasing a new medication, your primary veterinarian will need to authorize approval before it can be refilled. Please give us a call at 828-253-3393 when you need your cat's Revolution refilled so that we may have it approved and filled when you arrive. Please give us at least 24 hours notice. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
REVOLUTION PLUS has been approved for kittens over 8 weeks of age and weighing over 2.8 pounds. It is not approved in breeding, pregnant or lactating cats. Your veterinarian will use caution with cats with a history of neurologic disorders. Revolution Plus can be administered in conjunction with numerous cat medications and may be given to cats with adult heartworm infection. While there was a low incidence of side effects in clinical trials (drowsiness, temporary loss of appetite, hair loss at the application site, lethargy) it’s important to report to your veterinarian any unusual signs or activity in your cat or kitten after applying the product.
