Revolution also claims to kill fleas. It is not the best for ear mites since
they have a 3 week cycle and if you do repeat the Revolution, it's repeated
at 4 weeks. Here is an exchange I had with a vet regarding Revolution:

(VET)Well - I would probably just address each problem separately - use an
oral dewormer for the worms and an ear mite medicine that is put directly in
the ear.  That vet probably carries a product called accarex which is a
one-dose ear mite medicine.   That is what I would prefer to do anyway. :)

What would you recommend instead, please. I would prefer not to overkill.

Hi Laurie. I am happy to hear that Zoe recovered alright. About Revolution -
it is an ok product if you have a cat that truly needs treatment all of the
things that Revolution covers.  I am not crazy about it and don't use it on
my cats - it covers everything but doesn't seem to really cover anything all
that well (and it is expensive).  I have had a large number of clients
complain that they were not impressed by its ability to control fleas.  When
it first became available 5 years ago or so - the clinic that I was working
at did an experiment to see how truly efficacious it was against internal
parasites ("worms") - we were not impressed and after that little in-house
experiment did not rely on it for that purpose.  It is probably better
suited as a preventative tool than a curative tool for established problems.
If you just have ear mite issues and deworming needs - I guess Revolution
wouldn't be my first choice of treatment.

It is Revolution that claims to kill roundworms and hookworms (and ear
mites, and protects against heartworms).  Tapeworms you need a different
dewormer for.
