Dose: 1 ml suspension/kg body weight

For the treatment and control of roundworms (ascarids), in particular Toxocara canis, of puppies and young dogs up to one year of age. The product will also be effective against: Ascarids: Toxascaris leonina Hookworm: Ancylostoma caninum, Uncinaria stenocephala Whipworm: Trichuris vulpis
Dosage and administration
The dose is 1 ml suspension/kg body weight (equivalent to 14.4 mg/kg pyrantel embonate and 15 mg/kg febantel). Administration is by the oral route. The product may be given directly to the animal or mixed with the feed. No special dietary measures are necessary. Mix the product by inversion of the container before withdrawing the required dose. Through intrauterine and transmammary infection, ascarid infestation may occur in dogs at a very early age. For some animals, especially in case of severe infections, elimination of ascarids may be incomplete, and a potential risk of infections to humans can not be excluded. Where epidemiologically appropriate, it is recommended that treatment should be started at 2 weeks of age and should be performed repeatedly at suitable intervals (for example every two weeks) until weaning. Otherwise treatment should be based upon confirmed infection, for example the results of faecal examinations.
Use During Pregnancy and Lactation
This product is contra-indicated for pregnant and lactating bitches.
Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Do not use simultaneously with compounds containing piperazine. Parasite resistance to any particular class of anthelmintic may develop following frequent repeated use of an anthelmintic of that class. The safety of the product has not been assessed in puppies younger than 2 weeks and weighing less than 0.600 kg. In very rare cases mild transient digestive tract signs (e.g., vomiting diarrhoea) may occur. The anthelmintic effects of both pyrantel (spastic paralysis) and piperazine (neuromuscular paralysis) may be antagonised when the two drugs are used together. Doses of up to 5 times the therapeutic level of the product have been administered to puppies and young dogs without clinical signs of intolerance arising. At 10 times the recommended dose the first sign of intolerance &ndash vomiting &ndash was evident.
