Profender is used to treat cats against roundworms and tapeworms. It is provided as a convenient spot-on type of medication to enable easier dosing of cats. Profender is suitable for use on cats over 0.5kg in weight and more than 8 weeks old. A single application is sufficient for one treatment. Repeat treatment needs to be as often as required for the individual cat in question, though once every 3 months is usually appropriate. Profender is safe to use in cats during pregnancy or lactation.

25 Loss of hair and sticky fur

By on 16 August 2015

This is the combination of spot-on application and round/tapewormer that led our vet to recommend and prescribe this product (bought at the clinic). It should last for 3 months. However, loss of hair in large bunches occur and sticky white traces on the fur coat around the application site at the back of the neck of our cat last for a number of days after application. We are still looking for a spot-on alternative.

15 Beware of side effects

By on 26 May 2014

Not ordered from this site but I have used Profender twice before with some resultant hair loss on my cat's neck and below. However, though effective at keeping worms at bay, having just used it again about 2 weeks ago, it has caused considerable hair loss and inflammation where it was applied so I will not be using it again. Blackie will be visiting the vets tomorrow so the inflammation can be treated.

Can i use for dogs


Can I use this one foe my dog:chihuahua 2 years old?

  • VioVet Staff

Unfortunately this product is only made for cats. We cannot recommend it is used on a dog as it might well be ineffective and possibly unsafe. I have to say it would be better to use a worming tablet or perhaps one of the spot-on formulations which are intended for dogs (they are prescription only though).
