Description

TermaWorm™ Tablets for Cats & Dogs are our own brand worming tablets, intended for the treatment of all common roundworm and tapeworm found in the UK.

They contain the same ingredients (Praziquantel, Pyrantel/Pyrantel Embonate, Febantel) as the leading brands.

TermaWorm Tablets for Cats and Kittens 230/20 mg

ACTIVE SUBSTANCE(S) )

Each film-coated tablet contains Pyrantel embonate 230 mg and Praziquantel 20 mg.

INDICATION(S)

For the treatment of mixed infections caused by the following gastrointestinal roundworms and tapeworms:

Roundworms: Toxocara cati, Toxascaris leonina,

Tapeworms: Dipylidium caninum, Taenia taeniaeformis, Echinococcus multilocularis.

DOSAGEAND METHOD OF ADMINISTRATION

Do not use in kittens less than 6 weeks of age.

The recommended dose is: 20 mg/kg pyrantel (57.5 mg/kg pyrantel embonate) and 5 mg/kg praziquantel. This is equivalent to 1 tablet per 4 kg bodyweight.

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. Wash hands after use.

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 fter weaning.

To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible

SPECIAL WARNING(S)

Do not use during pregnancy but may be used during lactation.

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

Fleas serve as intermediate hosts for one common type of tapeworm – Dipylidium caninum. Tapeworm infestation is certain to reoccur unless control of intermediate hosts such as fleas, mice, etc. is undertaken.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

In very rare cases slight and transient digestive tract disorders such as vomiting and /or diarrhoea may occur.
In individual cases these signs can be accompanied by nonspecific signs such as lethargy, anorexia or hyperactivity.

The frequency of adverse reactions is defined using the following convention:
- Very common (more than 1 in 10 animals treated displaying adverse reaction(s)).
- Common (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 100 animals treated).
- Uncommon (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 1,000 animals treated).
- Rare (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 10,000 animals treated).
- Very rare (less than 1 animal in 10,000 animals treated, including isolated reports).
If you notice any serious effects or other effects not mentioned in this leaflet, please inform your veterinary surgeon.

SPECIAL WARNING(S)

Do not use simultaneously with piperazine compounds as the anthelmintic effects of pyrantel and piperazine may be antagonized.

Concurrent use with other cholinergic compounds (e.g.foxim) can lead to toxicity.

If you are uncertain, and your dog uses other veterinary medicinal products,check with a veterinary surgeon or pharmacist.

Fleas serve as intermediate hosts for one common type of tapeworm – Dipylidium caninum.

Tapeworm infestation is certain to re-occur unless control of intermediate hosts such as fleas, mice etc. is undertaken.

Tapeworm infestation is unlikely in pups less than 6 weeks of age.

Teratogenic effects attributed to high doses of febantel have been reported in sheep and rats. No studies have been performed in dogs during early pregnancy. Use of the product during pregnancy should be in accordance with a benefit risk assessment by the responsible veterinarian. It is recommended that the product is not used in dogs during the first 4 weeks of pregnancy. Do not exceed the stated dose when treating pregnant bitches.

Parasite resistance to any particular class of anthelmintic may develop following frequent, repeated use of an anthelmintic of that class.

Overdose:

The combination of praziquantel, pyrantel embonate and febantel is well tolerated in dogs. In safety studies, a single dose of 5 times the recommended dose or greater gave rise to occasional vomiting.

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

How often

Tash

How often should you be worming, from puppy to adult dog

  • VioVet Staff

It is recommended to worm a puppy at 2, 5, 8, 10 and 12 weeks old then monthly until 6 months old. Once 6 months old standard worming every 3 months is good unless you are wanting to cover lungworm where this needs to be done monthly with an appropriate wormer.

Lactating bitches

Catharine

  • VioVet customer since 2009
  • From: Northampton, United Kingdom

Is this suitable for lactating butchers ?

  • VioVet Staff

Do not use during pregnancy but may be used during lactation.

19 February 2021 at 2:36pm

Young puppies

Terry

Could you tell me what age this is suitable for use from? I know Panacur is usually used for the 2/4/6wk doses.

  • VioVet Staff

TermaWorm can be used in puppies over 1/2kg and 6 weeks of age. You therefore will probably need a product like Drontal Puppy or Panacur for the 2 and 5 week wormings, but when they are 8 weeks of age and over 1/2kg then TermaWorm is a great choice.

Puppy

Jessica Araujo

  • VioVet customer since 2019
  • From: Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

Hi, can these be used by a 12 week old puppy?

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Jessica, this should be fine - your puppy is definitely old enough and unless they're a toy breed weighing under 0.5kg at this age, then you can use it.

The tablets can be divided into halves or quarters to suit your dog's weight - here's an example of weights and the quantity needed:

Bodyweight

Tablets
½ - 2.5 1/4
2.6-5.0 ½

Given to puppies

Nicola Keeler

  • VioVet customer since 2018
  • From: Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom

Can my 11week doodle have these (she was wormed with a different wormer when at breeders) she weighs 8.5 kg
Thanks

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Nicola,

Yes you can use TermaWorm for your puppy :-) Between 5.1-10kg, she will need 1 tablet. It's usually advised that you treat monthly between 3-6 months of age, and TermaWorm is suitable for this. Advice used to be to drop to worming every 3 months after this point, although advice seems to be moving towards monthly treatment anyway.

I usually gauge it based on the dog's lifestyle - a dog going to local parks and areas where lots of other dogs are walked (and go to the toilet) would ideally be treated more regularly, to ensure any worms they pick up don't reach a high level. Similarly, dogs that love to eat everything they find are more likely to need more regular treatment.

I hope this helps!

Wormer made my dogs sick

Tania

Hi I treated both my dogs with terms worm and around 4 hours later it has made them sick . Will I need to do it again or has enough time gone by for them to have done the job in hand ?

How many?

Claire

This might be a silly question, but how many tablets re in the xl box? Do you only get one tablet? Thank you.

  • VioVet Staff

Yes TermaWorm is priced per tablet, so when you order 1 x TermaWorm XL you will get 1 tablet.

27 October 2020 at 11:32am

Collie

Emma Lilley

Is this wormer safe to use on my Border Collie?

  • VioVet Staff

TermaWorm is perfectly safe for all species of dogs, including Border Collies. Collies can be sensitive to ivermectin based wormers but TermaWorm does not contain this ingredient.

How often do you need to worm a cat

Sarah

How often do you need to worm a cat

  • VioVet Staff

We recommend worming once every 3 months for the average outdoor cat. If your cat is a particularly good hunter then you may need to worm monthly during the hunting season. Worms are obtained from raw meat/scavenging/hunting so if your cat is indoors only then every 6 months or less is likely sufficient.

How to administer after a long period without treatment

Abby

  • VioVet customer since 2019
  • From: Devon, United Kingdom

I have failed to worm my cats for about 6-8 months now, and they are 2.5 years old and nearly 2 years old. How do I go about treating, and at what intervals? Thanks

  • VioVet Staff

Standard adult worming should be done every 3 months for the average cat. If they are avid hunters then I advise doing this monthly during the hunting season (summer). If your cats are indoor only then you may want to only worm every 6 to 12 months as the risk is low.
TermaWorm is dose at 1 tablet per 4kg, each time you worm you should give a whole dose depending on the weight. For example a 2kg cat would only need 1/2 a tablet. The tablets are palatable so can be taken on their own, otherwise you may need to crush them into wet food.
