How does Centragard for Cats work?

Eprinomectin binds to glutamate gated chloride channels that are present in invertebrate nerve and muscle cells and increases the permeability of the cell membrane to chloride ions that triggers hyperpolarization of the nerve or muscle cell resulting in paralysis and death of the parasite. Praziquantel’s mode of action is not precisely known, but treated tapeworms undergo muscular paralysis accompanied by a rapid influx of calcium ions and the disruption of the tegument.

What are the side effects of Centragard for Cats?

ADVERSE REACTIONS : A temporary clumping or spiking of the hair and mild, transient skin reactions (itching, hair loss) has been observed uncommonly at the application site after treatment. When cats licked the application site after treatment, temporary excessive salivation was observed commonly in clinical trials. Oral ingestion of CENTRAGARD may also result in hypersalivation, vomiting and/or lethargy. In margin of safety studies, transient neurological signs such as ataxia, disorientation, lethargy, and pupil dilation were observed in some cats. Correct application will minimize the occurrence of such events.

What special precautions are there?

Keep away from children and animals. Not for human use. Avoid contact with the application site for 5 hours following treatment. Wash hands after administering the product. If the product accidentally gets into the eyes, flush thoroughly with water. In case of accidental ingestion, or if skin or eye irritation occurs, contact a poison control center or physician for treatment advice. PRECAUTIONS : Do not administer orally. Cats may salivate excessively and vomit if CENTRAGARD is accidentally administered orally or is ingested through licking/grooming the application site. The safety of CENTRAGARD has not been tested in breeding, pregnant or lactating cats. The safety of CENTRAGARD has not been tested in kittens less than 7-9 weeks of age or weighing less than 1.8 lbs (0.8 kg).

1.8-5.5                      0.3                      1.2                           24.9

To apply CENTRAGARD pull back the plunger of the unit applicator slightly and remove the cap. Part the hair in one spot on the midline of the neck between the base of the skull and the shoulder blades, place the tip of the unit applicator on the skin and apply the contents directly on the skin. If the weight of the cat requires a second application, apply the contents in the same manner as described above in the same location. Discard applicator after use.
