Milbemax is an oral broad-spectrum anthelmintic tablet for the treatment of mixed infections with roundworms, hookworms and tapeworms, and the prevention of heartworm disease in cats if concomitant treatment against cestodes is indicated.
The professional choice
European research has found that most vets and vet nurses prefer to use Milbemax when worming their own cats1.
Milbemax is a small tablet with high acceptance - recognised for its ease of use with a Feline Advisory Bureau Easy to Give award, 84% of cats can be treated with a single, tasty beef flavour coated Milbemax tablet 2.
Milbemax is a highly effective treatment - with its fast and direct gastrointestinal action 3, Milbemax effectively removes worm burden in infected cats. It is effective against immature and adult cestodes and nematodes.
Milbemax is an accurate treatment - because Milbemax is an oral treatment it ensures that the right dose is delivered straight to the intestinal tract, making it a direct and mess-free option for owners and pets.
Milbemax has a good safety profile - Milbemax can be given to kittens from 6 weeks of age and/or 0.5 kg, and is suitable for pregnant and lactating cats. There is no need to separate other pets during and after treatment and you can reassure owners that Milbemax provides safe post-treatment contact for themselves and their families.
