Milbemax Cat and Milbemax Cat Small/Kitten have been developed to easily and regularly deworm your cat or kitten. The small, tasty tablets kill most common worms in cats. The worming tablets, with the active ingredients milbemycin oxime and praziquantel, kill roundworms, hookworms and tapeworms.
When Milbemax is given monthly, it also protects your cat against heartworm disease (Dirofilaria immitis), an infection that is transferred by stinging mosquito's. So when you travel with your cat especially in heartwom areas, such as Southern-Europe, check if prevention of heartworm disease is indicated.
Worming is of great importance: to keep your cat, yourself and your family, healthy, it is important to deworm your cat regularly. Depending on the kind of worm, worms can make your cat and especially your kitten seriously ill, you don't want this to happen. Worms make a tour through the animals body and can damage organs such as the lungs, liver and intestines, possibly leading to obstruction, diarrhea or vomiting. Worms also have an adverse effect of the animals resistance, will cause inflammation and lower the effect of a vaccination. Of course you want to protect your cat against all kind of parasitic infections, but keeping your animals free of worms is also better for the health of all the other members of the household.
It is wise to deworm all adult cat up to 4 times a year depending on the risk of infection.
