MILBEMAX Tasty Deworming Tablets for Cats
Kitten, Adult & Senior
All Breed Sizes
Worming treatment used for the treatment of mixed worm infections by gastro-intestinal nematodes and cestodes, and the prevention of heartworm disease in cats.
Milbemycin oxime and praziquantel are the active ingredients in Milbemax.
Milbemycin oxime interferes with nerve transmission in invertebrates, which helps protect against heartworm, roundworm and hookworm.
Praziquantel causes muscle spasm in tapeworm, which are then attacked by enzymes and disintegrate. It kills all intestinal forms of tapeworm.
Milbemax is a broad spectrum intestinal wormer used in cats to treat roundworm, hookworm and tapeworms. If given monthly, it also offers prevention against heartworm. Milbemax for cats is a tiny, palatable beef-flavoured tablet that many animals will take straight from the hand.
