Re: Revolution - question about roundworms
I have used Revolution in my cat with a heart problem before.
Afterwards, she vomitted then passed on... really, she never woke
up, but then this could be due to her yearly vaccine which she also
had gotten at the same time. However, she never had any reaction to
the vaccines before, so I suspected Revolution. She may have been
allergic (anaphylaxis) to it or for reasons still unknown to me
Just play safe and not use Revolution. I agree to the lists
written here and just focus on the roundworms if it is the problem.
