Contraindications:

Special precautions for use in animals:
  • None.
Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals:
  • In case of accidental ingestion, seek medical advice and show the package leaflet to the physician.
  • In the interest 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.
Other precautions:
  • Echinococcosis represents a hazard for humans. As Echinococcosis is a notifiable disease to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), specific guidelines on the treatment and follow-up, and on the safeguard of persons, need to be obtained from the relevant competent authority.
Dosage and administration:

FOR ORAL ADMINISTRATION

Dosage:
5 mg praziquantel and 20 mg pyrantel base (57.5 mg pyrantel embonate) per kg of body weight. This corresponds to 1 tablet per 4 kg of body weight. Kittens weighing less than 1 kg should not be treated with the product, because correct dosing of such cats may not be feasible.

Administration:
The tablets are to be given directly into the mouth but can be administered in a small amount of food, if necessary.


Duration of treatment:
Single treatment. In ascarid infestation, especially in kittens, complete elimination cannot be expected, so a risk of infection for humans can persist. Repeat treatments should therefore be carried out with a suitable roundworm product at 14 day intervals until 2-3 weeks after weaning.


Use during pregnancy and lactation
The safety of the veterinary medicinal product has not been established during pregnancy. The product should not be used during pregnancy but may be used during lactation.


Interactions
Do not use simultaneously with piperazine compounds, because the specific activities of piperazine (neuromuscular paralysis of the parasites) can inhibit the efficacy of pyrantel (spastic paralysis of the parasites).
