Milprazon 12.5mg / 125mg 48 tablets
Treatment of mixed infections by tapeworms and nematodes in dogs.
Milprazon is indicated for the treatment of mixed infections by adult tapeworms and nematodes of the following species:
- Dipylidium caninum
- Taenia spp.
- Echinococcus spp.
- Mesocestoides spp.
- Ancylostoma caninum
- Toxocara canis
- Toxascaris leonina
- Trichuris vulpis
- Crenosoma vulpis (Reduced level of infection)
- Angiostrongylus vasorum (Reduced level of infection by stages of adult immature (L5) and adult parasites)
- Thelazia callipaeda
The veterinary medicinal product can be administered to prevent heartworm disease (Dirofilaria immitis), if concomitant treatment against tapeworms is indicated.
Active substances: Milbemycin oxime 12.5 mg and Praziquantel 125.0 mg.
Milbemycin oxime is active against mites, against larval and adult nematode stages as well as against Dirofilaria immitis larvae. The activity of milbemycin is due to its action on the neuron transmission of invertebrates causing the death of the parasite.
Praziquantel is active against tapeworms and trematodes. It modifies the calcium permeability of the parasite's membranes, causing an imbalance of the membrane structures, which leads to the depolarization of the membrane and almost instantaneous muscle contraction (tetany), rapid vacuolization of the syncytial integument and subsequent disintegration of the integument (vacuolization) resulting in an easier expulsion of the parasite from the gastrointestinal tract or death of the parasite.
Posology and route of administration:
Dogs must be weighed to ensure the correct dosage is determined.
Minimum recommended dose: 0.5 mg of milbemycin oxime and 5 mg of praziquantel per kg, single dose.
Depending on the dog's body weight, the practical doses are as follows:
5 to 25 kg - 1 tablet
> 25 to 50 kg - 2 tablets
> 50 to 75 kg -3 tablets
The veterinary medicinal product must be administered with or after feeding.
