Dosage and administration

Please note that these directions refer to products containing Milbemycin Oxime only, and may not be applicable to products containing a combination of ingredients.

Milbemycin Oxime tablets may be offered directly to the animal as a treat, added to food, or administered as a tablet medication. Monitor the animal to ensure that no part of the tablet is lost or rejected. If it is not entirely consumed, redose once with the full recommended dose as soon as possible.

For maximum efficacy, Milbemycin Oxime must be administered once a month, preferably on the same day each month.

For seasonal protection, pets should be given their first dose within 30 days of their first exposure to mosquitos, with dosing continued until one month after the end of the mosquito season. Where mosquitos are present all year round, treatment may continue throughout the year at monthly intervals.

Possible side effects

Side effects reported in animals treated with Milbemycin Oxime include depression, lethargy, vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea, convulsions, weakness, and hypersalivation.

Be aware that dogs and cats treated with the same product may experience different side effects.

Precautions

The most common problems caused by Milbemycin Oxime occur from incorrect dosing. Ensure that you are using the correct product for your animal’s type and weight; never use a product intended for dogs to treat cats.

As with all heartworm preventative, animals should be tested and cleared for existing heartworm before starting preventative treatment.

Use with caution in collies or related breeds as these dogs have an increased sensitivity to the effect of Milbemycin Oxime, and toxicity can more easily occur.

Do not use on dogs under 4 weeks of age or weighing less than 2 pounds (0.9 kg).

Do not use on cats under 6 weeks of age or weighing less than 1.5 pounds (0.7 kg).

If you suspect your dog or cat has had an overdose, contact your veterinarian immediately.
