Heartworm preventative

Indications

RSPCA Monthly Heartworm Tablets prevent heartworm disease in dogs by eliminating the tissue stage of heartworm larvae (Dirofilaria immitis) that infected the dog in the month (30 days) before treatment.

General Directions

The proper dose should be given at monthly intervals during the period of the year when mosquitoes potentially carrying infective larvae are active. The initial dose must be given within one month of first exposure to mosquitoes. However, RSPCA Monthly Heartworm Tablets also control heartworm infection when treatment is initiated up to four months after exposure to infected mosquitoes, provided monthly treatment is continued for at least 12 months. The final dose must be given within one month after the last exposure to mosquitoes.

When replacing another heartworm preventive product in a heartworm disease preventive programme, the first dose of RSPCA Monthly Heartworm Tablets must be given within a month after the last dose of the former medication.

Give one appropriately sized tablet orally at monthly intervals. The tablet may be wrapped in food to encourage consumption. The dog should be closely observed for several minutes following administration to make sure that the entire dose has been consumed. If it is suspected that any of the dose has been lost, redosing is recommended.

Contraindication:

This product should not be used in puppies under 6 weeks of age.

Dosage

The dosage of Ivermectin required is 6μg per kg bodyweight once a month. Give 1 tablet containing the amount of ivermectin appropriate to the dog's weight as follows:

For small dogs up to 10kg give one 60μg tablet each month.
