Emodeside and Praziquantel
Profender Large Cat gives effective control of every kind of intestinal worm normally occurring in cats without tablets or injection.
A single, simple spot on treatment is all it takes.
The recommended minimum doses are 3 mg emodepside/kg body weight and 12 mg praziquantel/kg body weight, equivalent to 0.14 ml Profender/kg body weight. A single administration per treatment is effective.
Use an appropriate combination of pipettes
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.
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.
Do not administer orally or parenterally.
Avoid the treated cat or other cats in the household licking the site of application while it is wet.
Salivation, vomiting and neurological signs (tremor) were observed occasionally when the product was administered at up to 10 times the recommended dose in adult cats and up to 5 times the recommended dose in kittens. These symptoms were thought to occur as a result of the cat licking the application site. The symptoms were completely reversible. There is no known specific antidote. In very rare cases following administration of Profender transient alopecia, pruritus and/or inflammation were observed at the application site.
