For treatment ofAngiostrongylus vasoruminfections, milbemycin oxime should be given four times at weekly intervals. It is recommended, where concomitant treatment against cestodes is indicated, to treat once with the product and continue with the monovalent product containing milbemycin oxime alone, for the remaining three weekly treatments.
In endemic areas administration of the product every four weeks will prevent angiostrongylosis by reducing immature adult (L5) and adult parasite burden, where concomitant treatment against cestodes is indicated.
For the treatment of Thelazia callipaeda, milbemcyin oxime should be given in 2 treatments, seven days apart. Where concomitant treatment against cestodes is indicated, MILBEMAX can replace the monovalent product containing milbemycin oxime alone
