Revolution is approved for 1 type of tick in dogs and cats but not as large
a group. I think it is still effective. Ivermection is not effective
against ticks. I w ould n ot use any of them together. If you want to use
fronline of advantage I would recommend using ivermectin for heartworm
Don't know anything about the new product its not marketed here yet so I
won't comment. Advantage is Flea only and Advantix can't be used.
