Milbemax effectively protects against:
Milbemax comes in a tiny beef-flavoured tablet. Cats like the beef flavour so much, that many will take the tablet straight from the hand or in their normal food. It’s the smallest cat all-wormer available.
Regular treatment for worms is important because when worming your cat only the parasites are killed at the time of treatment, so it’s important to treat on a routine basis to avoid re-infection.
Worms can be picked up by your pet from eating infected soil, meat, rodents or other prey, and even by swallowing infected fleas when grooming. Some worms take only a few weeks to arrive in the intestine, mature and start laying eggs, that’s why your cat needs regular treatment.
Milbemax is a state-of-the-art broad spectrum all-wormer – a tiny tablet that works from the inside to kill internal parasites fast. Milbemax offers your cat and family effective protection from roundworm, hookworm and tapeworm.
Worms can live anywhere in the body, though they prefer the lining of the intestine as it is an ideal place to breed.
Intestinal worms can cause many problems for your cat, including abdominal pain, diarrhoea, bloody stools, tiredness/lack of energy, poor growth and weight loss. They can also weaken your cat’s immune system, making them more vulnerable to other infections.
Roundworm are named for their large, round bodies. They live in the small intestine and infestations are very common. The symptoms to look out for in cats include diarrhoea, vomiting, poor growth and tiredness/lack of energy.
Hookworm attach themselves to the lining of the small intestine and have a large appetite for blood. This makes them very dangerous for cats, especially kittens, as they can cause severe anaemia or even death. Symptoms of infection include bleeding in the intestine (identified by blood in the stool), abdominal pain, diarrhoea and itchy skin sores. Heavy infections can cause serious anaemia (identified by pale gums and tiredness).
Symptoms of heavy infection include weight loss, diarrhoea, anal irritation and a poor coat. However, infected cats sometimes show no symptoms at all.
Signs that your cat may have worms:
- Abdominal pain
- Intestinal bleeding (identified by blood in the stool)
- Tiredness/lack of energy
- Poor growth
- Weight loss
- Itchy skin sores
- Anaemia (identified by pale gums and tiredness)
- Anal irritation
- Poor coat
NB: Sometimes cats can have worms and not have symptoms.
Milbemax broad spectrum all-wormer is suitable for all cats. Treatment involves fewer tablets than some other leading brands: 96% of cats can be treated with one tablet or less*. So Milbemax makes it easier to deliver the right dose to your cat or kitten.
Milbemax Small Cat/Kitten can be used safely** in kittens from 6 weeks of age and 500g in weight.
Milbemax is suitable for breeding and lactating queens**.
