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).

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.

35 Tablets too big.
Verified Purchase

By Patsy Boughton on 12 December 2019

I hadn’t realised the tablets would be so big & find it difficult to place them in the cat’s mouth, so that they can be swallowed easily. They’re not easy to break in half, but can be cut with a knife. But for a cat over 4kg needing one & a half tablets, that requires three half pills to be swallowed. Not easy at all to accomplish. I’m confident the wormer is efficient but the size of the tablet may put me off ordering again.

55 Easy to give & calculate the dose
Verified Purchase

By Christine Strike on 3 December 2019

Bought these to go with the larger size to get the right dose for my big dog. It was easy to get the accurate dose as the can be split into 4 He took them really well hidden in hotdog With other brands of "palatable" wormers he usually gets the taste of the first dose & spits them out, refusing to take any others after that, which results in a battle to push them down by hand So well pleased with these & will certainly buy more next time

Q & A

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

20 November 2019 at 3:34am

Cats that weigh more than 4 kg

Paula Smith

Can these tablets be cut in half, I have 3 cats that weigh between 6 and 7 kg. Or do they need two tablets each?

  • Brand Manager

Hi Paula,

Thanks for getting in touch. Your cats weighing between 6-7kg will need two tablets each for an effective treatment. Cats between 4-6kg can have 1.5 tablets.

They can be divided into halves though for easy administration, or can be crushed into wet food as long as they eat all of it in one go. I hope this helps!

Kind regards,

Danielle

Fleas & worms

rosemarie

Does this product kill fleas, ticks and worms (including lung worm)

  • Brand Manager

Hello,

TermaWorm treats a wide range of worms in cats & dogs. It is licensed for treatment of mixed infections by roundworms (including hookworms and whipworms) and tapeworms. It's a great product for the commonly found worms mentioned, where the adults live in the intestinal tract.

It does not kill fleas or ticks, and it is not licensed for treatment of lungworm. For confirmed cases of lungworm, it is best to treat under veterinary supervision. There are some products that your vet can prescribe that will provide long term protection from lungworm but there is not a non-prescription alternative currently.

I hope this helps!

Kind regards,

Danielle

Pregnant dogs

Lauren Wood

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: West Midlands, United Kingdom

Can you give this product to pregnant dogs?

  • Brand Manager

Hi Lauren,

It is recommended that TermaWorm is not used in dogs during the first 4 weeks of pregnancy. After the first 4 weeks, if your vet says it is okay to worm with the tablets then it is fine to do so. You'll need to be sure of her weight at the time of worming, and to keep to the recommended dosage for that weight.

You could alternatively use a Panacur product from day 40 of the pregnancy, and give her a 25 day course which will ends 2 days post whelping (at a much lowered dose).

I hope this helps!

Administration times

Ali maciver

Are the recommended above monthly ? Can't seem to find this info anywhere. Thanks.

  • Meds Supervisor

Hello,

Thank you for your question.

Worming tablets should be used once every 3 months for dogs and cats. However if your cat is a hunter or your dog is exercised on farm land, monthly treatment is recommended.

I do hope this helps.

XL DOG TABLETS

Jill Kudat

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

Hi. Little confused with the dosages.
My labradoodle is 27kg and was going to order the XL dog tablet. Pls could you confirm the dosage?
Or would she need the other size tablets?
TIA

  • Brand Manager

Hi Jill,

Apologies for the confusion. For a 27kg dog, you could either use 1 x TermaWorm XL Tablet for Dogs, or 3 x TermaWorm Tablets for Dogs.

Each XL tablet can treat a dog up to 35kg in bodyweight, and it is perfectly safe for her to receive a slightly higher dose than needed. The benefit of the XL tablet is that you only need to feed her one, although it is a large tablet. It can be divided into 2 if needed.

The regular TermaWorm Tablets for dogs treat 10kg bodyweight each. You'll just need to make sure your dog takes all three tablets at the same time. The 3 tablets will be slightly cheaper than one XL tablet, but it depends on which you think you'll find easiest to feed your dog.

I hope this helps!

Danielle.

10 week old kitten

Tracey Hewitt

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

Would this be safe for a 10 week old kitten?

  • Brand Manager

Hi Tracey,

TermaWorm can be used for kittens over 6 weeks old, weighing at least 1kg. It will treat both tapeworm and roundworm infection and can be used safely in unweaned kittens. It's recommended that they are treated every 14 days, until 2/3 weeks after weaning to minimise roundworm infection (which is passed between mother and kittens in milk and faeces).

After this period, worming every 1-3 months is recommended (1 month for outdoor cats that hunt, and a minimum of every 3 months for cats who do not hunt/spend as much time outdoors).

Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Kind regards,

Danielle

Worm pills

La Cresswell

  • VioVet customer since 2017
  • From: Powys, United Kingdom

Hi i have two labs i 20kg and the other 25kg. I am about to worm them with what you recommend but how may tablets must they have to treat them? 1 each or 2 1/2 each? I am going to use thermaworm tablets

  • Veterinary Advisor

If you know that your weights are accurate then your 20kg dog would have 2 x 150mg tablets and your 25kg dog 2.5 tablets. It is very inportant with worming not to underdose so make sure their weights are up to date.

How to administer?

Teresa

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

What’s the best way to dose a cat? Can these be crushed into food or must they be swallowed whole?

  • Product Developer

Hi Teresa,

Thank you for your question.

TermaWorm will still be effective if given crushed and mixed in to food or folded in a treat, as long as they eat the entire amount, which can sometimes be a challenge depending on the cat! If this isn't doable, you will need to give the tablet whole. This can be achieved by placing the tablet towards the back of the throat, then gently holding the mouth closed, rubbing the throat for a few seconds to encourage them to swallow.

I hope this helps.

LUNG WORMS

Roy Armitage

  • VioVet customer since 2017
  • From: Aberdeenshire, United Kingdom

Our vet is reccommending treating dogs for worms monthly because of the spread of lung worms getting near to our area. Will the general worming tablets work or are special ones required?

  • Website Content Developer

Hi Roy,

Unfortunately, the only products that give month long protection from lungworm are prescription-only, such as Advocate, which is a spot-on that covers fleas, mites and most worms (not tapeworm). If you get a prescription from your vet, we can supply Advocate for your dogs. Some vets are happy to put repeats on a prescription to save you some extra money, as you can use the prescription for multiple packs before getting a new one - maybe have a chat about this if there is a lungworm problem in your area.

Lungworm is spread through eating infected slugs/snails, or potentially their slime (which could be on sticks, toys left outside, puddles etc), so if he doesn't eat slugs and snails, his risk is probably very low.

www.lungworm.co.uk/lungworm-map can be used to check the number of cases reported in your area - it's currently 0 so risk is low. The website is good if you'd like to learn more about lungworm too.

Products like TermaWorm cover all other worms and are perfect for routine monthly treatment of all the common roundworm and tapeworm but they don't target lungworm.

I hope this is helpful!

Danielle.
