Profender Topical Solution


PROFENDER Topical Solution is indicated for the treatment and control of hookworm infections caused by Ancylostoma tubaeforme (adults, immature adults, and fourth stage larvae), roundworm infections caused by Toxocara cati (adults and fourth stage larvae), and tapeworm infections caused by Dipylidium caninum (adults) and Taenia taeniaeformis (adults) in cats.

PROFENDER Topical Solution [1.98% emodepside/7.94% praziquantel] is a clear yellow ready-to-use solution packaged in single unit dosing applicator tubes for topical (dermal) treatment of cats 8 weeks of age and older and weighing at least 2.2 lbs (1 kg). The formulation and dosage schedule is designed to provide a minimum of 1.36 mg/lb (3 mg/kg) emodepside and 5.45 mg/lb (12 mg/kg) praziquantel based on body weight.

Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian

Dosage and Administration:

The recommended minimum dose is 1.36 mg/lb (3 mg/kg) emodepside + 5.45 mg/lb (12 mg/kg) praziquantel as a single topical dose. A single treatment is effective and a second treatment should not be necessary. If re-infection occurs, the product can be re-applied after 30 days.

Cats over 17.6 lbs. should be treated with the appropriate combination of tubes.

2. Remove one unit dose tube from the package.

3. While holding the tube in an upright position, remove the cap from the tube.

4. Turn the cap over and place the other end of cap onto the tip of the tube.

5. Twist the cap to break the seal and then remove cap from the tube. Remove the cap from the tube.

6. Part the hair on the back of the cat's neck at the base of the head, until the skin is visible.

7. To ensure the entire contents of the tube are administered, place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the entire contents directly onto the skin. Lift tube away from the skin before releasing pressure on the tube.

Do not apply to broken skin or if hair coat is wet. Do not get this product in the cat's mouth or eyes or allow the cat to lick the application site for one hour. Oral exposure can cause salivation and vomiting. Treatment at the base of the head will minimize the opportunity for ingestion while grooming. In households with multiple pets, keep animals separated to prevent licking of the application site.

Stiff hair, a damp appearance of the hair, or a slight powdery residue may be observed at the treatment site. These effects are temporary and do not affect the safety or effectiveness of the product.

Human Warning:

Not for human use. Keep out of reach of children.

To prevent accidental ingestion of the product, children should not come in contact with the application site for twenty-four (24) hours while the product is being absorbed.

Pregnant women, or women who may become pregnant, should avoid direct contact with, or wear disposable gloves when applying, this product. Studies performed in rats and rabbits suggest that emodepside may interfere with fetal development in those species.

PROFENDER Topical Solution may be irritating to skin and eyes. Reactions such as facial, tongue and hand swelling have been reported in humans in rare instances. Avoid contact with the application area while it is wet and wash hands thoroughly with soap and warm water after handling. People with known hypersensitivity to butylhydroxyanisole, emodepside or praziquantel should administer the product with caution. If the product accidentally gets into eyes, flush thoroughly with water. May be harmful if swallowed. In case of accidental ingestion or if skin or eye irritation occurs, call a poison control center or physician for treatment advice.


Safe use of this product has not been evaluated in cats less than 8 weeks of age or weighing less than 2.2 lbs (1 kg), in cats used for breeding, during pregnancy or in lactating queens. The effectiveness of this product when used before bathing has not been evaluated.

Use with caution in sick or debilitated cats. Oral ingestion or exposure should be avoided.

Use with caution in heartworm positive cats. The cats enrolled in the field study were heartworm antigen and antibody negative prior to entering the study. In a laboratory study, cats artificially infected with adult heartworms and treated with PROFENDER Topical Solution had fewer worms recovered than the placebo control group.

Store at or below 77°F (25°C).
