Indications for use
For the treatment of mixed infections caused by the following gastrointestinal roundworms and tapeworms. Roundworms:Toxocara cati, Toxascaris leonine. Tapeworms:Dipylidium caninum, Taenia taeniaeformis, Echinococcus multilocularis.
Do not use simultaneously with piperazine compounds. Do not use simultaneously with other deworming products without veterinary advice. Do not use in kittens less than 6 weeks of age. Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to the active substances or to any of the excipients.
Special warnings for target species
Do not use in cats weighing less than 1kg bodyweight. Fleas serve as intermediate hosts for one common type of tapeworm – Dipylidium caninum. Tapeworm infestation is certain to reoccur unless control of intermediate hosts such as fleas, mice, etc. is undertaken. Development of parasite resistance to anthelmintics of a certain class can occur after frequent and repeated use of an anthelmintic from that class.
Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product
In the interests of good hygiene, persons administering the tablets directly to the cat, or by adding them to the cat’s food, should wash their hands afterwards. In case of accidental ingestion, seek medical advice and show the package leaflet or carton to the physician.
Mild and short-lived digestive tract disorders such as excessive salivation and/or vomiting and mild and short-lived disorders of the nervous system such as loss of balance may occur in very rare cases (less than 1 animal in 10,000, including isolated reports).
Use during pregnancy and lactation
Do not use during pregnancy. The tablets can be used during lactation.
Interaction with other medicinal products
Do not use simultaneously with piperazine compounds.
Dosage and administration
The recommended dose rate is 1 tablet per 4kg bodyweight.
Number of tablets
Single oral administration. The tablet should be given directly to the cat, but if necessary can be disguised in food. In an ascarid infestation, especially in kittens, complete elimination cannot be expected, so a risk of infection for humans can persist. Repeated treatments should, therefore, be carried out with a suitable roundworm product at 14 day intervals until 2–3 weeks after weaning. If signs of disease persist or appear, consult a veterinary surgeon.
