More Info

Bob Martin Spot on Wormer for Cats and Kittens is a fast and effective treatment for common tapeworm infestations. 

Easy to apply and effective immediately, this spot on treats cats and kittens from 1kg in weight. 

This pack contains 4 treatments to effectively kill and eradicate tapeworms affecting cats, including: 

  • Flea tapeworm.
  • Taenia taeniaeformis.
  • Echinococcus multilocularis.

 

How to use

For external use only – apply to an area where the animal cannot lick it off and do not allow pets to lick each other after treatment.

DIRECTIONS:

  • For animal treatment only.
  • The minimum dose rate is 8mg/kg bodyweight, which equates to 1 tube per 2.5kg bodyweight.
  • DO NOT administer Bob Martin Clear Wormer 20mg Spot on Solution by mouth.
  • Weigh your cat carefully before calculating the dose.
Bodyweight Number of Tubes Quantity of Praziquantel mg/kg bw
1 – 2.5kg 1 20mg 8 – 20
>2.5 – 5kg 2 40mg 8 – 16
>5kg 3 60mg maximum 12

Note: if your cat weighs more than 5kg apply an extra tube per 2.5kg bodyweight.

  1. Hold the tube upright and snap off the top section of the cap opening the tube.
  2. Part the coat on the back of the neck immediately behind the head until the skin is visible. If the cat is wearing a collar remove it first so that it does not restrict application. Correct application will minimise the chance for your cat to lick the product.
  3. Tap the narrow part of the tube to ensure the contents are within the main body of the tube. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and slowly squeeze the entire contents onto the skin. Each application will be absorbed into the skin. Allow the contents of each tube to be absorbed before applying any additional tubes.
  4. To minimise the possibility of run-off after application of more than one pipette, it is advised that the applications should be performed slowly to allow absorption and that it may be advisable to allow the contents of the previous pipette to be absorbed before applying another.

FREQUENCY:

It is recommended to re-apply the product when signs of tapeworm infestation re-appear or at monthly intervals.

Ingredients

Each pipette contains 20mg praziquantel:

  • Praziquantel prevents newly hatched worms from growing or multiplying inside the body.
