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.

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).

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.

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

  • 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.

Dividing tablets

Val

Can the tablets be divided? One dog 22kgs, another 15. How many should they have please?

  • Brand Manager

Hi Val,

Yes, the tablets are scored so you can easily break them into halves. Your 15kg dog will need 1.5 tablets and the 22kg dog will need 2.5 tablets. So if you buy 4 in total, they can share one of them.

You can either feed directly, or mix into food if needed. Hope this helps!

13 November 2017 at 11:04pm

Tablets

Cathy

Hi how many tablets are in the box please. As I can't see to see how many are in the box. Thank u

  • Brand Manager

Hi Cathy,

We sell the tablet individually, so you can just enter the number you need.

For cats, each tablet treats 4kg. If you have a cat that weighs more than 4kg, you will need to give more than one tablet eg a 6kg cat need 1.5 tablets.

Each dog tablet treats 10kg and each XL tablet for dogs treats 35kg.

I hope this helps!
