Ceva Animal Health has extended its antiparasitic range of products with the launch of broad-spectrum flavoured endoparasiticide tablet, Milbactor for dogs.
Offering comprehensive worm control, Milbactor contains the “proven and trusted” active ingredients milbemycin oxime and praziquantel – a combination that offers protection against common nematodes and cestodes seen in the UK including Angiostrongylus vasorum and the main species of tapeworm.
Milbemycin oxime is active against larval and adult stages of nematodes and increases the nematode membrane permeability to chloride ions leading to paralysis and death. Praziquantel is active against cestodes and acts by increasing the influx of calcium through the membranes of the worm, resulting in easier expulsion from the gastrointestinal tract or death of the parasite.
Puppies weighing as little as 0.5 kg can be treated with Milbactor from two weeks of age and the treatment can be used throughout the dog’s life, following a protocol that suits the age and lifestyle of the pet.
Milbactor comes in two tablet sizes for dogs and puppies and the tablets are flavoured for easy administration.
To champion “excellence in flea, tick and worm control”, Ceva has also launched The Ceva Protection System for dogs – a simple two-step solution featuring Vectra 3D and Milbactor to provide comprehensive ectoparasite and endoparasite protection for dogs with one monthly topical treatment and one flavoured tablet. The system also features Vectra Felis for fast-acting flea protection for cats and Acclaim for the treatment of the pet’s home environment.
Rob McLintock, Ceva’s companion animal business unit manager, said: “The launch of Milbactor and The Ceva Protection System will enable veterinary surgeons to offer their clients a simple regime featuring Vectra 3D and Milbactor for comprehensive parasite control in dogs. Offering protection both inside and out and with no bite required to kill fleas, the regime offers a simple, effective combination to treat and prevent fleas, ticks, biting flies, roundworms, tapeworms, lungworms and to prevent heartworm.”
