Milprazon Chewable tablets for small cats and kitten is a powerful multi-parasitic worming treatment for mixed infections caused by adult and immature cestodes and nematodes. It has been indicated for the prevention and control of various types of intestinal worms including roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms in cats. It is an easy-to-administer oral treatment that combines two active ingredients (praziquantel and milbemycin oxime) into a delicious chewable flavored tablet. Moreover, it can also be used as a monthly prevention of heartworm disease. These flavored tablets are safe and effective to be used in pregnant, lactating, and breeding cats from 6 weeks of age and weighing 0.5 kg (1.1 lbs) or more.
How it works?
Milprazon chewable tablet contains milbemycin oxime and praziquantel. Milbemycin is a macrocyclic lactone that acts by disrupting nerve transmission within the parasite leading to death of the parasite. It is also a potent microfilariacidal drug, meaning it can kill the microscopic offspring of heartworms and prevent heartworm disease. On the other hand, Praziquantel is an acylated isoquinoline pyrazine compound demonstrated to have cestocidal effects on juvenile, adult worms and many other species of cestodes including tapeworms. It impairs the function of the parasite’s sucker and stimulates movement of the worm. These actions cause dislodgement of the parasite’s attachment to the intestinal tract and allow it to be eliminated in the feces (stool).
