Through intrauterine and transmammary infection, ascarid infestation may occur in dogs at a very early age. For some animals, especially in case of severe infections, elimination of ascarids may be incomplete, and a potential risk of infections to humans can not be excluded. Where epidemiologically appropriate, it is recommended that treatment should be started at 2 weeks of age and should be performed repeatedly at suitable intervals (for example every two weeks) until weaning. Otherwise treatment should be based upon confirmed infection, for example the results of faecal examinations.  Use During Pregnancy and Lactation.  This product is contra-indicated for pregnant and lactating bitches.


Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Do not use simultaneously with compounds containing piperazine.  Parasite resistance to any particular class of anthelmintic may develop following frequent repeated use of an anthelmintic of that class.  The safety of the product has not been assessed in puppies younger than 2 weeks and weighing less than 0.6 kg.  In very rare cases mild transient digestive tract signs (e.g., vomiting, diarrhoea) may occur.  The anthelmintic effects of both pyrantel (spastic paralysis) and piperazine (neuromuscular paralysis) may be antagonised when the two drugs are used together.

User safety

Wash hands after use.  Avoid direct contact with the skin and eyes.  In case of accidental spillage wash the affected area immediately with clean running water.
