|Parasites Controlled||Intestinal Worms, Tapeworm|
|Duration of Effect||12 weeks|
|Indication||Treatment and control of intestinal parasites in cats including roundworms: mature, immature and larval (L3 and L4) stages of Toxocara cati, and mature, immature and larval (L4) stages of Toxascaris leonina; prevents lactogenic transmission of T. cati from queens to kittens; hookworms: mature, immature and larval (L4) stages of Ancylostoma tubaeformae; lungworms (Aelurostrongylus abstrusus); and tapeworms: mature and immature stages of Dipylidium caninum and Taenia taeniaeformis.|
|Actions||Emodepside acts presynaptically at the neuromuscular junctions. The end result is flaccid paralysis and death of the nematodes. Praziquantel destroys the tapeworm's ability to defend itself from the host's digestive enzymes and immune system. It also appears to interfere with the musculature of the scolex such that the parasite loses its attachment to the gut wall.|
