This medication contains two active ingredients, milbemycin oxime and praziquantel. It works to prevent heartworm disease, and to treat and control hookworms, roundworms, whipworms and tapeworms in dogs. Milbemycin oxime shifts chloride, a naturally occurring electrolyte, across the cell membrane of certain susceptible worms. By overloading chloride into these worms, it affects the electrical activity within their nervous system, causing muscle paralysis and death. Praziquantel is the second active ingredient, which adds protection against tapeworms.

Uses and Dosage

This medication should never be administered without first consulting your veterinarian.

Administer the medication orally once a month. It can be given with or without food, and the chewable tablet may be broken up to make it easier to administer.

Ensure that the chewable is chewed and not swallowed whole. If your dog or cat does not consume the entire chew, it is recommended to redose with a new chewable.

Follow the dosing instructions carefully. Even if your pet appears to be better, complete the entire treatment plan to prevent recurrence.

Monthly dosing is generally recommended for the prevention of heartworm disease.
