Administration and duration of treatment

Single oral administration. The tablet should be given directly to the cat, but if necessary can be disguised in food.

In ascarid infestation, especially in kittens, complete elimination cannot be expected, so a risk of infection for humans can persist. Repeat treatments should, therefore, be carried out with a suitable roundworm product at 14 day intervals until 2-3 weeks after weaning.

4.10 Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary

After doses higher than 5 times the recommended dose, signs of intolerance such as vomiting have been observed.

4.11 Withdrawal period(s)

Not applicable.

5. PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

Pharmacotherapeutic group: Anthelmintics, praziquantel combinations.

ATC vet code: QP52AA51

5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties

This product contains anthelmintics active against gastrointestinal roundworms and tapeworms. The product contains two active substances, as follows:

  1. Pyrantel embonate (pamoate), a tetrahydropyrimidine derivative

and

  1. Praziquantel, a partially hydrogenated pyrazinoisoquinoline derivative.

Pyrantel acts as a cholinergic agonist. Its mode of action is to stimulate nicotinic cholinergic receptors of the parasite, induce spastic paralysis and thereby allow expulsion from the gastro-intestinal (GI) system by peristalsis.

Praziquantel is very rapidly absorbed and distributed throughout the parasite. Both in vitro and in vivo studies have shown that praziquantel causes severe damage to the parasite integument, resulting in contraction and paralysis. There is an almost instantaneous tetanic contraction of the parasite musculature and a rapid vacuolization of the syncytial tegument. This rapid contraction has been explained by changes in divalent cation fluxes, especially calcium.

In this fixed combination, pyrantel is active against the following ascarids: Toxocara cati, and Toxascaris leonina. Praziquantel is effective against tapeworms in particular Dipylidium caninum and Taenia taeniaeformis.

Since it contains praziquantel, the product is effective against Echinococcus multilocularis,.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic particulars

Praziquantel is rapidly absorbed, metabolised and distributed in the body. It is also believed to be excreted back into the intestinal lumen by the mucous membrane.

Following administration of the product to cats, peak plasma concentrations of praziquantel were achieved by approximately 2 hours.

Pyrantel is poorly absorbed so it is expected that a large proportion of the administered dose remains in the GIT where it exerts its therapeutic effect and it is excreted largely unchanged in the faeces.

Following administration of the product to cats, peak plasma concentrations of pyrantel were achieved by approximately 3 hours.

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Prazitel Worming Tablets for Dogs & Cats, including answers from our team.

2 October 2017 at 9:18pm

Puppies

Becky

Can this product be given to puppies?

  • Veterinary Advisor

This wormer can be used on puppies from 2 weeks of age.

28 May 2017 at 2:00pm

Mother cat

Susie

My mother cat has worms but only gave birth two weeks ago. Is it safe to give her a wormer?

  • Brand Manager

Yes, this is perfectly safe. The kittens are likely to have worms also, as some types of roundworm can get into the mammary glands, and pass to the kittens in their mother's milk. While they are not weaned and she is cleaning them up when they go to the toilet, the kittens will be a source of infection for her also.

I'd recommend worming her with Prazitel every 4 weeks until they are fully weaned. The kittens can't have Prazitel until they at least 6 weeks old and weighing at least 1kg. While they're small, I recommend using something like Panacur Paste or Panacur Suspension with them at 2, 5, 8 and 12 weeeks of age (or just before they leave your home).

I hope this helps!

30 April 2017 at 9:29am

Prazitel

Is this for both worms

Are these for both type of worms

  • Brand Manager

Yes, Prazitel treats all common types of roundworms (nematodes) and tapeworms (cestodes) found in dogs and cats, including Ascarids, Hookworms, and Whipworms. It unfortunately cannot treat heartworm though, you would need to ask your vet to prescribe a product for this if your dog is in a high risk area.

24 November 2016 at 6:15pm

What is the frequency to administer one tablet of prazitel to a cat?

Prazitel Worming Tablets for Dogs & Cats

i did not receive a leaflet for use with the packet. i do not know how frequently to administer this tablet. is it once every four months ... or?

  • Veterinary Advisor

The usual frequency of administration for a wormer such as this would be once every 3 months. However it depends a bit on each dog. If your dog is a particular scavenger then you could worm up to once a month but usually every 3 months is enough.

10 October 2016 at 10:29pm

Kittens?

Clare Ratcliffe

  • VioVet customer since 2012
  • From: West Yorkshire, United Kingdom

Is this wormer ok to use on kittens?

  • Veterinary Advisor

This wormer is fine to use in kittens over 6 weeks of age.

Half tablets

Nat c

A couple of my dogs weigh 12kg. Do they need two whole tablets or one and a half? Can I give half a tablet? Cheers

  • Non-Executive Director

The correct dose is one and a half tablets to each dog.

6 October 2015 at 10:23am

Does this treat lungworm

Lucky13

Does the treat lungworm and roundworm as well? Do you need a prescription for this?

  • Non-Executive Director

You do not need a prescription for this wormer. It treats tapeworms and all the main round worms, but is not claimed to have any activity against lungworm. The only product which is known to be helpful against the main type of lungworm in dogs is prescription-only (Advocate).

18 June 2015 at 8:13am

Pregnant Dog

Sandra Crook

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Staffordshire, United Kingdom

I wormed my dog 10 days ago and have just found out she is pregnant. Will this drug harm the pups?

  • Non-Executive Director

Giving a worm dose in early pregnancy is not recommended because on principle this should be avoided with any medication. Usually there is no particular reason to worm a bitch in early pregnancy anyway, so the advice would be not to do it. That does not mean however that it is actually likely to be harmful. The chances of you noticing any adverse response are very slim. Many dogs are given worm doses while pregnant and it does not seem to cause a problem. I would not have advised that you did this if you had known she was pregnant, but now that it is done you should not worry. I very much doubt if it will cause any trouble at all.

17 June 2015 at 9:31am

Pregnant cat

Charlotte

Can I give prazitel to a pregnant Cat?

  • Non-Executive Director

Prazitel is not recommended for use during pregnancy. It is safe however to give after giving birth and while lactating. Kittens should not be dosed directly until they are 6 weeks old.

9 June 2015 at 6:23pm

How often

Carol

how often do I need to give this wormer as they all seem to differ

  • Non-Executive Director

For most dogs a multi-wormer like this is recommended to be given once every three months. Strictly speaking this varies with the type of dog, its health status overall and the environment it lives in. Since it is difficult to assess these factors individually, people tend to give blanket recommendations and once every 3 months is the most usual advice if there is nothing unusual about your dog.
