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?

Profender is absorbed through the cat's skin via the hair follicles where it enters the bloodstream. Profender reaches the intestine to treat and control tapeworm, roundworm and hookworm infections. The ingredient, Emodepside is a semi-synthetic compound belonging to the new chemical group of depsipeptides. It is active against roundworms (ascarids and hookworms). In this product, emodepside is responsible for the efficacy against Toxocara cati, Toxascaris leonina, and Ancylostoma tubaeforme. It acts at the neuromuscular junction by stimulating presynaptic receptors belonging to the secretin receptor family which results in paralysis and death of the parasites. Praziquantel is a pyrazinoisoquinoline derivative effective against tapeworms such as Dipylidium caninum, Echinococcus multilocularis, and Taenia taeniaeformis. Praziquantel is rapidly adsorbed via the surface of the parasites and acts primarily by changing the Ca++ permeability of the parasite membranes. This results in severe damage to the parasite integument, contraction and paralysis, disruption of metabolism and finally leads to the death of the parasite.
