Teach is a veterinary medicine for cats suffering from, or at risk for, mixed parasitic infections caused by round worms (Nematodes), flat worms (Cestodes) and lung worms (Aelurostrongylus abstrusus).
Teach contains emodepside 21.4 mg / ml and praziquantel 85.8 mg / ml.
Emodepside is a semi-synthetic compound belonging to the new chemical group of depsipeptides. It is active against nematodes (ascarids and hookworms). In this medicine, emodepside is responsible for its effectiveness against Toxocara cati, Toxascaris leonina, Ancylostoma tubaeforme, and Aelurostrongylus abstrusus. It acts at the neuromuscular junction by stimulating the presynaptic receptors belonging to the family of secretin receptors, which results in the paralysis and death of the parasites.
Praziquantel is a derivative of pyrazinoisoquinoline effective against tapeworms, such as Dipylidium caninum, Echinococcus multilocularis, and Taenia taeniaeformis. Praziquantel is rapidly adsorbed via the parasites' surface and acts mainly by altering the parasite's membrane permeability to Ca ++. This results in severe damage to the parasite's integument, contraction and paralysis, disruption of metabolism and ultimately death of the parasite.
The recommended minimum doses are 3 mg of emodepside / kg body weight and 12 mg of praziquantel / kg body weight, equivalent to 0.14 ml of Profender / kg body weight.
Calculate the exact dose based on the individual live weight, or use the following recommended dose volumes for the different weight ranges:
Profender for Small Cats (≥ 0.5 - 2.5 kg) -0.35 ml
Profender for Medium Cats (> 2.5 - 5 kg) -0.70 ml
Profender for Large Cats (> 5 - 8 kg) -1.12 ml
For cats weighing> 8 kg - use the appropriate combination of pipettes.
For the treatment of roundworm and flatworm infections, a single administration per treatment is effective.
In the case of treating cats to prevent the lactogenic transmission of Toxocara cati (larva L3) to the litter, a single administration per treatment, approximately 7 days before the expected date of delivery, is effective.
In the case of the pulmonary worm Aelurostrongylus abstrusus, two treatments are effective, given with an interval of two weeks between them.
Method of administration:
For external use only. Hold the adapter, remove the protective cap from the piercing tip and insert the tip through the center of the bottle cap. Remove the screw cap. Take a standard 1 ml disposable syringe with a luer nozzle and connect to the adapter. Then invert the bottle and remove the required volume. Replace the screw cap after use. Remove fur from the neck at the base of the cat's neck until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the syringe on the skin and empty the contents directly onto the skin. The application at the base of the neck will minimize the possibility of the cat licking the product.
