Product Type

Worming treatment for the treatment of internal parasites, roundworm, hookworm and tapeworm, in dogs.

Properties

Milbemycin oxime and praziquantel are the active ingredients in Milbemax.

Milbemycin oxime interferes with nerve transmission in invertebrates, which helps protect against heartworm, roundworm, hookworm and whipworm.

Praziquantel causes muscle spasm in tapeworm, which are then attacked by enzymes and disintegrate. It kills all intestinal forms of tapeworm except Spirometra spp, which require a higher than standard dose rate.

Indications

Milbemax for dogs is a broad spectrum intestinal wormer. If given monthly, it also offers prevention against heartworm.

Milbemax for dogs protects against

  • Roundworm (Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina);
  • Hookworm (Ancylostoma caninum, Ancylostoma braziliense);
  • Whipworm (Trichuris vulpis);
  • Tapeworm (Dipylidum caninum, Echinococcus granulosus, Taenia spp); and
  • Spirocerca lupi (The "worm in the throat")

If given monthly, Milbemax protects dogs against all of the above, as well as heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis).

Milbemax for dogs comes in two tablet formulations.

Milbemax tablets for small dogs and puppies (0.5-5kg):

  • 2.5mg milbemycin oxime (dose range 0.5-5mg/kg)

  • 12.5mg milbemycin oxime (dose range 0.5-2.5mg/kg)

Milbemax for dogs has a satisfactory safety profile when used as per label directions.

Milbemycin oxime has been safety tested in more than 75 different dog breeds, breeding males, pregnant and lactating females, puppies older than 2 weeks and ivermectin-sensitive collies. Clinical signs of toxicity may be seen at greater than 10 times the recommended dose.

Praziquantel has been safety tested in breeding males, and pregnant and lactating females. Clinical signs of toxicity may be seen at 20-80 times the recommended dose.

If an animal with adult heartworm infection (and therefore circulating microfilariae) is given Milbemax Dog, a mild transient shock-like reaction can occur. To avoid this, dogs should be tested for existing heartworm infection before starting treatment.

This formulation is not suitable for use in cats.
