Use an appropriate combination of pipettes
For the treatment of roundworms and tapeworms a single administration per treatment is effective.
For the treatment of queens to prevent lactogenic transmission of Toxocara cati (L3 larvae) to the offspring, a single administration per treatment approximately seven days prior to expected parturition is effective.
For the lungworm Aelurostrongylus abstrusus, two treatments administered two weeks apart are effective.
Method of administration
For external use only.
Remove one pipette from package. Hold pipette in upright position, twist and pull off cap and use the opposite end of the cap to break the seal. See Figure 1.

Figure 1: Opening a pipette
Part the fur on the cat’s neck at the base of the skull until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette on the skin and squeeze firmly several times to empty the contents directly onto the skin. Application on the base of the skull will minimise the ability of the cat to lick the product off. See Figure 2.
