What is MILPRO®? MILPRO is a broad spectrum worm control, treats and controls all major intestinal worms found in cats and dogs, including roundworm, hookworm, whipworm and tapeworm, including hydatids. When used monthly, MILPRO prevents heartworm.
- Cats and kittens from 6 weeks of age and weighing at least 0.5kg.
- Dogs and puppies from 2 weeks of age and weighing at least 0.5kg.
MILPRO has been developed to make dosing easier for the vet, pet owner and pet, to aid in increasing compliance and treatment success. The innovative film-coating is highly palatable, with real liver flavouring, and the tablets are small and ovoid in shape. The tablets may be hidden in food, or accepted from the hand.
Every animal has a different lifestyle and will require tailored worming to suit their needs. MILPRO is available in a range of sizes – from small kittens to large dogs – with scored tables to ensure accurate dosing.
Indications: Treatment and control of roundworm (Toxocara cati, Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina), hookworm (Ancylostoma tubaeforme, Ancylostoma caninum, Ancylostoma braziliense ), whipworm (Trichuris vulpis) and tapeworm, including hydatid tapeworms (Dipylidium caninum, Taenia spp., Echinococcus granulosus) in dogs and cats. Prevents heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis).
Dosage & Directions For Use: Animals should be weighed to ensure accurate dosing. MILPRO Tablets should be administered orally, either with or after food. Half tablets may be kept for use in the original blister for up to six months after the first half was used. When administering Milpro Tablets, be certain that the entire dose is consumed. Watch for several minutes following treatment to be sure that the entire dose has been eaten. lf the entire dose is not eaten, redose as soon as possible, with the full dose.
Fleas are intermediate hosts for tapeworm (Dipylidium caninum). Effective flea control will reduce the incidence of tapeworm.
If worm problems persist, consult a veterinarian.
Caution should be taken in the case of concurrent use of the product and other macrocyclic lactones. Studies with milbemycin oxime indicate that the margin of safety in certain dogs of Collie or related breeds is less than in other breeds. In these dogs, the recommended dose should be strictly observed. Clinical signs in Collies are similar to those seen in the general dog population when overdosed.
MILPRO, given monthly, may be used for prevention of heartworm infection of dogs.
In heartworm risk areas, or in the case of unknown heartworm status, an examination for existing heartworm infection prior to commencement of treatment is recommended. Consult a veterinarian.
