Milbemax for cats is a beef flavored tablet used as a broad spectrum Allwormer to treat intestinal worms in felines. It kills controls and treats all types of roundworms, hookworms and tapeworms found in kittens and cats. It destroys juvenile and mature stages of intestinal worms and thus protects the pet from several diseases. The flavour-coated tablets are also an effective heartworm preventive.
Milbemycin oxime and praziquantel are the active ingredients of the tablets. The first one disrupts nerve transmissions in invertebrates and thus destroys heartworm larvae, hookworm and roundworm.
