Flea and tick prevention monthly?

by Conor

My new cat was given Revolution for flea prevention a month before I adopted her, but the shelter form says that she needs it again in a month. Why would she need flea and tick prevention again so soon, if she just got it last year? Is revolution a multi-dose formula or something?

Some flea prevention products for cats are designed to be given monthly, like Revolution, and some are not. Bravecto, for example, is a topical solution but is given every 3 months. The selling point is that some cats are not easy to administer topical medication to, so doing it 4 times a year is more desirable than 12 times a year.
