Using Revolution & Allwormer at same time?

Hello,
I've decided to put my cat on Revolution (compared to some other flea treatments it statistically speaking seems to be the most safe/least toxic from the various references/studies pages of info I've found online and read).

According to this page (http://www.drugs.com/vet/revolution.html) (which is quite informative and useful if you want to know anything about Revolution) says that Revolution treats heartworm, roundworm and hookworm but it doesn't treat tapeworm so I still need to treat my cat for tapeworm.

I am having a hard time finding tapeworm only paste for cats (I'm in Australia) and I prefer paste because I'm really not good at all in giving tablets :confused: and with the paste I just put a little bit on the paw so she has to lick it off and keep repeating that until I've given the right dose.

I don't know if I can use an Allwormer paste that will treat for worms that the Revolution also treats for.

Has anyone here used both or uses both on your cat/s?

Thanks
Damian.

Welcome to the board, Damian! :D

Is there a vet you can call and ask? If not, is there a manufacturer's customer service phone number listed for the products you want to use?

If I couldn't get in touch with a vet, I'd call both manufacturers and pose the question. If you can get a list of ingredients before you call, they may be able to give you a better idea of how safe the two products are when used together.

Thanks for the welcome and reply Hazelrunpack. :)

I emailed an online store who have a vet consultant and they said:

"I have checked with our Vet who has advised that it is safe to use the Revolution in conjunction with the Felex paste.emailed both the manufacturer

I also emailed the manufacturer and they said Revolution and allwormer paste could be used at the same time.

So I'm glad now I can use Revolution on my cat because she is getting elderly and I wouldn't want to use most of the other flea treatments but I still want to ensure fleas aren't causing problems for her health and quality of life.

Thanks again :thumbs up
Damian.
