Definitely; my vet said that cats had convulsions from Revolution – it treats 
so many things, contains more poisons!

Advantage is safer than is Revolution for cats, or so my then-vet said.

Well I Googled before & did again. The only thing I can find is that some cats 
are more prone to Moxidectin toxicity, which is why you have to be so careful 
about dosages.
The Multi formula has meds for fleas - Imidacloprid & heartworm larvae - 
Moxidectin

Either way the dog Multi has bit had much effect on my cats this year. I've 
heard some people say you should switch products periodically to keep the fleas 
from becoming immune to the
 meds.
