The entire MILPRO® range contains natural protein in the coating - no artificial flavouring. That’s why it’s so tasty!
MILPRO® has been developed to make dosing easier for you and your pet, to increase compliance and treatment success.
The innovative film-coating is highly palatable and the tablets are small and ovoid in shape.
MILPRO® is proven to be highly palatable to both dogs and puppies.2
Studies prove higher palatability for cats than an existing milbemycin/praziquantel product.2
MILPRO® is available in a range of sizes – from small kittens to large dogs – with scored tablets to ensure accurate dosing.
SAFE TO USE
Can be used more frequently if recommended by your vet
Many broad-spectrum paraciticides cannot be used more than once every 4 weeks, which can leave pets and their owners unprotected from worms between treatments. Milpro® can be used more often*, if recommended by your vet.
Safe to use with your topical flea treatment
Milpro® is safe to combine with Selamectin-based topical flea treatment.
Worming puppies and kittens
This is important as some parasites can pass from mother to kittens or pups during pregnancy or through lactation.
Treatment helps prevent parasites from infecting pet owners during the regular handling of young animals.
Milpro® is safe to use in:
PUPPIES: from two weeks of age and over 500 g bodyweight.
KITTENS: six weeks of age and over 500 g bodyweight.
HIGHLY EFFECTIVE DEWORMER
MILPRO® treats and controls all major intestinal worms found in cats and dogs. ☑ roundworm☑ hookworm☑ whipworm☑ tapeworm
Worms can be found in unexpected places and carried into your house on shoes and pets.
Rodents, insects and birds can carry worms
Animals that hunt can ingest worms from their prey.
Fleas can carry worms
Fleas carry tapeworms, which are ingested by animals when grooming.
Some worms can penetrate the skin
Hookworm larvae can enter through bare feet and other exposed skin.
Worms can cause disease in humans
Some Roundworm larvae can migrate and cause eye damage, or even blindness.
ZOONOTIC TRANSMISSION: A HUMAN HEALTH RISK
Some worms, like Roundworms, can be passed from animals to humans.
This transmission is called “zoonosis.” Individuals who share an environment with an infected animal may be at risk of getting infected.
High risk groups (YOPI):
Young, Old, Pregnant, Immunocompromised
TIPS TO AVOID INFECTION
Clean your fruits and vegetables thoroughly before eating
Wash your hands after working in the yard or playing with your pet
Clear your yard of animal faeces
DEWORM YOUR PET REGULARLY!
DEWORMING YOUR PETS
Every pet’s level of risk is unique. That’s why the European Scientific Counsel Companion Animal Parasites (ESCCAP) promotes following a custom parasite management plan, which should be recommended by your vet.
Adult cats and dogs should be dewormed every 3 months as a rule of thumb. However, your pet’s lifestyle determines the risk of picking up parastites, and therefore how often they should be treated. Always read the package leaflet before use and discuss any changes to the prescribed frequency with your vet.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DEWORM MY CAT?
Adult cats who hunt should be treated with a broad-spectrum wormer every month. Discuss treatment with your vet.
Most adult cats in New Zealand should be treated with a broadspectrum wormer, such as MILPRO®, four times per year (every three months).
Breeding and pregnant queens should be treated at mating, and 10 days before kittening.
Always deworm nursing queens together with the kittens.
Deworm at 6, 8 and 12 weeks of age, then 3-monthly.
Do not use MILPRO® in kittens of less than 6 weeks of age and/or weighing less than 0.5kg.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DEWORM MY DOG?
Adult dogs who come in to contact with farm animals should be treated with a broad-spectrum wormer every month. Discuss treatment with your vet.
Most adult dogs in New Zealand should be treated with a broadspectrum wormer, such as MILPRO®, four times per year (every three months).
Breeding and pregnant bitches should be treated at mating, and 10 days before whelping.
Nursing bitches should be treated at the same time as their puppies.
Puppies should be treated at 2, 4, 8 and 12 weeks of age, then every three months.
Do not use MILPRO® in puppies of less than 2 weeks of age and/or weighing less than 0.5kg.
A note on tapeworms
Not all dewormers treat tapeworms - check with your vet to create an appropriate worming plan.
Some tapeworms are transmitted by fleas - treat your pet for fleas and remember to treat the environment with Indorex® as well.
