The most significant difference when you compare Revolution vs Trifexis is that Revolution is a topical liquid treatment and Tifexis is a chewable tablet. Both of these pet meds treat for fleas and heartworm, but they do it in there own way.
Trifexis for dogs is also known as Panoramis for dogs in Australia. It uses the ingridients Spinosad to control fleas and milbemycin oxime to treat heartworms and intestinal worms. It is a chewable tablet that is given with a meal on a monthly basis. Trifexis (Panormais) treats for adult fleas, flea allergy dermatitis, heartworm, roundworm, hookworm and whipworm. It can be used on puppies from 8 weeks of age.
Revolution for dogs is also knwon as Stronghold for dogs in the UK. It uses the ingridient Selamectin to treat for fleas and heartworm. It comes as a liquid topical treatment that is applied to the back of dogs neck once a month. Revolution for dogs treats for adult fleas, flea eggs, flea allergy dermatitis, heartworm, sarcoptic mites and ear mites. Revolution for dogs 6 pack and 12 packs come with Canex which treats for roundworm, hookworm, whipworm and tapeworm. It can be used on puppies from 6 weeks of age.
We find that Trifexis (Panoramis) treats fleas a bit better then Revolution. That being said Revolution does a very good job of keeping fleas off dogs, and we have very few complaints saying it does not work well. At the moment the tablets Trifexis (Panoramis), Comfortis and Capstar seem to be killing fleas off dogs the best.
This question is a little harder to answer as when dogs are treated to prevent heartworm there are very few cases that they will get it. Revolution uses Selamection and Trifexis (Panoramis) uses milbemycin oxime to prevent heartworm. One thing we can say is that they both work well and if treated correctly with either you should not have to worry about your dog getting hearworm.
Revolution on its own does not treat for intestinal worms. However Revolution for dogs 6 packs and 12 packs come with Canex all wormer which will treat for all the intestinal worms including tapeworm. Trifexis (Panoramis) treats for hookworm, roundworm and whipworm. The downside to Trifexis is that is does not treat for tapeworm. If you are buying Revolution in a 6 pack or 12 pack and getting the Canex then you will be treating your dog for all worms.
