One of its oral dewormers, Milbemax is effective in preventing heartworm infection also. Suitable for all breeds of dogs, it is safe for breeding dogs as well as pregnant and lactating females.
How does it work?
Milbemax contains two key ingredients Milbemycin oxime and praziquantel. The first ingredient Milbemycin oxime disrupts nerve transmission in intestinal parasites. Thus, helps in protecting dogs against hookworms, roundworms, whipworms, and heartworms.
The other ingredient praziquantel causes muscle spasm in tapeworms, which then are attacked by enzymes and disintegrate. It kills all types of tapeworms except Spirometra spp. Thus, the unique formulation protects dogs from intestinal worm infection and prevents heartworm infection.
Kindly note that as Novartis is now part of Elanco, the manufacturer’s name may differ on the product packs according to the stock availability.
