Worming your cat is important to keep your cat happy and healthy whilst also safeguarding your home from infestations. Bob Martin Clear Wormer 20 mg Spot-on Solution for Cats and Kittens is a fast and effective treatment for tapeworm infestations.
Cats can contract worms in ways such as, being in contact with fleas infected with flea tapeworm and catching and eating wild animals.
In more severe cases, symptoms can include weight loss, vomiting and diarrhoea.
This pack contains 2 treatments to effectively kill and eradicate common tapeworms affecting cats.
For external use only – apply to an area where the animal cannot lick it off and do not allow pets to lick each other after treatment.
For animal treatment only.
The minimum dose rate is 8mg/kg bodyweight, which equates to 1 tube per 2.5kg bodyweight.
DO NOT administer Bob Martin Clear Wormer 20mg Spot-On Solution by mouth.
Weigh your cat carefully before calculating the dose.
|Bodyweight||Number of Tubes||Quantity of Praziquantel||mg/kg bw|
|1 – 2.5kg||1||20mg||8 – 20|
|>2.5 – 5kg||2||40mg||8 – 16|
Note: if your cat weighs more than 5kg apply an extra tube per 2.5kg bodyweight.
Hold the tube upright and snap off the top section of the cap opening the tube.
Part the coat on the back of the neck immediately behind the head until the skin is visible. If the cat is wearing a collar remove it first so that it does not restrict application. Correct application will minimise the chance for your cat to lick the product.
Tap the narrow part of the tube to ensure the contents are within the main body of the tube. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and slowly squeeze the entire contents onto the skin. Each application will be absorbed into the skin. Allow the contents of each tube to be absorbed before applying any additional tubes.
To minimise the possibility of run-off after application of more than one pipette, it is advised that the applications should be performed slowly to allow absorption and that it may be advisable to allow the contents of the previous pipette to be absorbed before applying another.
It is recommended to re-apply the product when signs of tapeworm infestation re-appear or at monthly intervals.
Each pipette contains 20mg praziquantel.
