Last time I used Revolution it only last 2 weeks, while the packet said it would last for a month. Why did it not work for the full month?
This can be for a number of reasons, the main reasons would be if you have a really bad flea problem Revolution is not working as strong at the end of the month as it does at the start, so although it is still working some what it is not enough to stop the large amount of fleas. If this is the case you will want to re-apply Revolution every 2 weeks while fleas are bad. Another reason is that it takes up to a year to stop the flea cycle around your house. This means that treating your dog for the full year instead of just the warmer months when fleas are worse will make it more effective when flea season is on. Most people don't have an extreme case of fleas and wont have to worry about it lasting less than a month.
