Owning a Pet is Great for Kids

Many parents cringe at the thought of getting a pet for their kids because it takes a lot of commitment, responsibility and cost, such as buying pet meds like Revolution for Dogs or Revolution for Cats.

However, your child stands to learn some positive things in life if you take the considered risk of getting a pet:


Your child will develop accountability. Teach your kid minor tasks such as preparing the pet bowl at feeding time, cleaning up afterwards, or to hold the pet still when it's time to medicate, say with Revolution for Dogs, Revolution for Cats, Advantage, Canex or Heartgard. You could also teach him to store the boxes of pet meds in a cool and dry place.

2.Time Management

It teaches your kids to plan and manage time so that they will still be able to enjoy and accomplish other activities a normal child experience, such as playtime or homework. Teach them to use a calendar to remember the date to medicate or buy pet meds. For example, Revolution must be given around the same date each month to protect from fleas and heartworm. Buy a calendar that has big numbers and let your kid cross due dates with a big colorful pen because with Revolution, you can't miss a month of it, since it increases the chance of worsening the infestation.


When medicating pets kids will value health all the more because they'll have to make sure their pet never gets sick, otherwise it may die. Teach them what the medication does, how it's used, how it's applied, and how it's stored. For instance, Revolution for Cats and Revolution for Dogs is weight-specific; it can be given to kittens and puppies over six weeks of age. Revolution is for the prevention, treatment, and control of fleas, flea eggs, ear mites, sarcoptic mites, heartworm, and additionally, with Revolution for cats, hookworms and roundworms. It's stored in a cool, dry place. Of course, adult supervision is ALWAYS required when applying medications such as Revolution but it's still necessary to show them how, so they'll know what to do on their own as they grow. This practice will influence their daily health habits such as brushing teeth, washing hands, etc.

4. Emotional well-being

Just being with some furry friend eases the stress one experiences in one's daily life. When adults are or are not available, a pet can provide relaxation and companionship. Studies suggest that getting a pet prolongs one's life. A kid can even make medicating a pet with Revolution a bonding time because there's always an excuse for a cuddle!

Does Revolution Kill Flea Eggs Too?

Many pet owners are becoming more aware about how to effectively solve their flea problems. One way is to target the flea eggs before they hatch, develop into adult fleas, and begin to multiply.

Flea eggs are white and translucent. Since they are oval and slippery, they can be scattered anywhere and everywhere. Dogs and cats are active hosts of fleas; they jump and roam and are often all over the place. The flea eggs could roll off and fall to furniture, blankets, clothes, and many areas of the house where they frequent. Good thing there is Revolution for dogs and Revolution for cats that could effectively get rid of not just adult fleas and larvae but flea eggs, too.

Many who are on the lookout for reasonably priced medications turning to Revolution because apart from treating and controlling heartworms, hookworms, roundworms, sarcoptic mites, and ear mites, Revolution for dogs and Revolution for cats treat and control flea infestation, which includes the adult fleas, the flea larvae, and their eggs.

Revolution renders the eggs ineffective due to its powerful ingredient Selamectin. Once the eggs are useless and are unable to hatch anymore, you've prevented the flea population from increasing.

Revolution for cats and Revolution for dogs is the easiest, most practical pet medication that Pfizer has created because it is just a monthly dose that you apply to your pet's back, between the shoulders, and you're done! You just have to make sure the Revolution dries for two hours before your pet engages in water related activities. However, make sure to apply this pet med on dry fur first to make sure it's really effective.

Revolution is highly recommended by veterinarians world-wide because it is effective but still gentle on your pets' systems.

It comes in convenient packaging that you could buy, good for three months, six months, and twelve months. You can actually vary the number of packs of Revolution for cats and Revolution for dogs you can buy and it won't make a huge dent in terms of budgeting.

A single box will tide you over for a given period and this allows you to prepare to save for the next months without the rush.

Revolution was such a reward to us pet owners hence, if you are still not using Revolution go now to your vet or go online and order Revolution. Our Jose is such a healthy dog since using Revolution.

How can Fleas Get into my House?

First of all let me give you a description of what fleas are. Fleas are parasites which are wingless that feed on the blood of any warm-blooded body more often are dogs, cats and humans. You might be wondering fleas are wingless but how come they proliferate so fast not only in your pet but to your house as well. With the powerful legs they possess, the fleas jump as high as 8 inches vertically and 16 inches horizontally. If you think you are the only one who experience such problem having fleas in your house, don't be. I can attest to that. Let me share with you our experience of the past 6 years in dealing with fleas getting inside our home.

Six years ago we had Jose which is our baby who happens to be a Shih-Tzu. Before we had Jose my husband and I were not interested about fleas and other such stuff but it was a 360 degree turn around when Jose came. One of our utmost concerns since then was to prevent fleas getting into our house since Jose stays inside the house. Fleas have existed for ages and keep on pestering homes as long as they have blood to suck to continue to exist. In addition, fleas have a 4 stages of the life cycle to be able to control them one must be able to restrict the fleas in any stage they are in. We did experience having fleas getting inside our house not because Jose has it but due to the fact that when we walk Jose in the park every weekend he mingles with the other dogs and one way or another there are a few times he was infected with fleas. That's the time we had a pet medication that stood the test of time for Jose which is called Revolution.

Let me share with you how Revolution works to prevent fleas getting into our house and most especially to our Jose. It has been Revolution since Jose was still small that kept fleas barred inside our house. Revolution bearing the chemical name Selamectin is a safe and easy to use monthly topical pet medication which shield Jose from heartworms, fleas, ticks, ear mites and sarcoptic mange. Revolution acts by infiltrating Jose's skin and bloodstream. With the Revolution active ingredient Selamectin concentrations which enters Jose tissue and bloodstream it put to a stop to heartworm disease and it spread to Jose's skin from the bloodstream which eventually kills adult fleas. Revolution is also an anthelmintic which expels parasitic worms.

Thank goodness to our vet for sharing Revolution with us because it kept our worries at a lesser level in regards with fleas. Revolution was such a heaven sent pet medication. Thus, every time we put Revolution to Jose we can proudly say Jose is totally free of fleas, ticks, ear mites, sarcoptic mange and heartworms. Lastly, as attested by most of our friends who have pets most of them uses Revolution hence, as a living testimony of its use we are highly recommending Revolution to all pet owners out there.
