    • Cestodes:
    • Dipylidium caninum
    • Taenia spp.
    • Echinococcus multilocularis

Amounts of Milbemax to be administered and administration route:

Milbemax film-coated tablets:

  • 2 mg of milbemycin oxime and 5 mg of praziquantel per kg are given orally as a single dose. The product should be administered with or after some food. Doing so ensures optimum protection against heartworm disease
  • Depending on the bodyweight of the cat, the practical dosing is as follows:
Weight of cat Milbemax film-coated tablets for small cats and kittens Milbemax film-coated tablets for cats
0.5 - 1 kg ½ tablet
> 1 - 2 kg 1 tablet
2 - 4 kg ½ tablet
> 4 - 8 kg 1 tablet
> 8 - 12 kg 1½ tablets
  • The product can be inserted into a programme for prevention of heartworm disease if at the same time treatment against tapeworms is indicated. MILBEMAX has a duration of heartworm prevention of one month.
  • For regular prevention of heartworm disease the use of a monosubstance is preferred.

Milbemax tablets / Milbemax chewable tablets:

  • Minimum recommended dose rate: 0.5 mg of milbemycin oxime and 5 mg of praziquantel per kg are given once orally.
  • The product should be administered with or after some food.
  • Depending on the bodyweight of the dog, the practical dosing is as follows:
Weight of dog Milbemax [chewable] tablets for small dogs and puppies Milbemax [chewable] tablets for dogs
1 – 5 kg 1 [chewable] tablet
5 – 25 kg 1 [chewable] tablet
> 25 - 50 kg 2 [chewable] tablets
> 50 - 75 kg 3 [chewable] tablets
  • To ensure a correct dosage, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible to avoid under dosing.
  • In cases when heartworm disease prevention is used and at the same time treatment against tapeworm is required, the product can replace the monovalent product for the prevention of heartworm disease.
  • For treatment of Angiostrongylus vasorum infections, milbemycin oxime should be given four times at weekly intervals. It is recommended, where concomitant treatment against cestodes is indicated, to treat once with the product and continue with the monovalent product containing milbemycin oxime alone, for the remaining three weekly treatments.
  • In endemic areas administration of the product every four weeks will prevent angiostrongylosis by reducing immature adult (L5) and adult parasite burden, where concomitant treatment against cestodes is indicated.
  • For the treatment of Thelazia callipaeda, milbemcyin oxime should be given in 2 treatments, seven days apart. Where concomitant treatment against cestodes is indicated, the product can replace the monovalent product containing milbemycin oxime alone. |
