Why use Profender for Cats?

Features of Profender for Cats:
  • Profender is the first and only topical broad spectrum dewormer that treats and controls tapeworm, roundworm and hookworm infections in cats. Profender is a convenient single dose treatment for cats and kittens that are at least 8 weeks of age and weigh at least 2.2 lbs. For cats suffering from, or at risk from, mixed parasitic infections caused by roundworms and tapeworms of the following species: Roundworms (Nematodes) Toxocara cati (mature adult, immature adult, L4 and L3) Toxascaris leonina (mature adult, immature adult and L4) Ancylostoma tubaeforme (mature adult, immature adult and L4) Tapeworms (Cestodes) Dipylidium caninum (adult) Taenia taeniaeformis (adult) Echinococcus multilocularis (adult)

How does Profender for Cats work?

The hair follicles carry Profender to the skin, where it then enters the cat's bloodstream. It makes its way to the intestine, where it begins to control and treat infections of hookworms, roundworms, and tapeworms. Emodepside is a depsipeptide semi-synthetic compound. It works against hookworms and roundworms. Emodepside works against Ancylostoma tubaeforme, Toxascaris leonina, and Toxocara cati. Within the neuromuscular junction, this ingredient stimulates presynaptic receptors from the family of secretin receptors, causing parasite paralysis and subsequent death. Praziquantel is a derivative of pyrazine isoquinoline, which works against such tapeworms as Taenia taeniaeformis, Echinococcus multilocularis, and Dipylidium caninum. The parasite's surface readily absorbs this ingredient, which primary by making changes to the Ca++ permeability of the membranes of parasites. This causes serious parasite integument damage, paralysis and contraction, metabolism disruption, and finally, parasite death.
