SENTINEL FLAVOR TABS

(milbemycin oxime - lufenuron)

Novartis Sentinel Flavor Tabs are palatable once-a-month tablets that prevent heartworm disease and flea populations in dogs and puppies. Sentinel Flavor Tabs also control flea populations and adult hookworms, and remove and control adult roundworm and whipworm infections in dogs and puppies.

Sentinel Flavor Tabs are available in four tablet sizes in color-coded packages for oral administration to dogs and puppies according to their weight. Each tablet is formulated to provide a minimum of 0.23 mg/pound (0.5 mg/kg) of milbemycin oxime and 4.55 mg/pound (10 mg/kg) body weight of lufenuron.

Indications

SENTINEL Flavor Tabs are indicated for use in dogs and puppies, four weeks of age and older, and two pounds body weight or greater. SENTINEL Flavor Tabs are also indicated for the prevention of heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis, for the prevention and control of flea populations, the control of adult Ancylostoma caninum (hookworm), and the removal and control of adult Toxocara canis and Toxascaris leonina (roundworm) and Trichuris vulpis (whipworm) infections.

Lufenuron controls flea populations by preventing the development of flea eggs and does not kill adult fleas. Concurrent use of an adulticide product may be necessary for adequate control of adult fleas.

SENTINEL Flavor Tabs may be used concurrently with CAPSTAR (nitenpyram) Tablets to provide a Flea Management System that kills adult fleas and prevents flea eggs from hatching. Please see the Supplemental Package Insert provided with this product for information about concurrent use of the two products.

Without concurrent use of an adulticide, adequate flea control may not be achieved in dogs that have repeated exposure to flea infected animals or environments.

Precautions

Do not use in puppies less than four weeks of age and less than two pounds of body weight. Prior to administration of SENTINEL Flavor Tabs, dogs should be tested for existing heartworm infections. Infected dogs should be treated to remove adult heartworms and microfilariae prior to initiating treatment with SENTINEL Flavor Tabs. Mild, transient hypersensitivity reactions manifested as labored respiration, vomiting, salivation and lethargy have been noted in some treated dogs carrying a high number of circulating microfilariae. These reactions are presumably caused by release of protein from dead or dying microfilariae.

SENTINEL Flavor Tabs immediately break the flea life cycle by inhibiting egg development. However, pre-existing flea populations may continue to develop and emerge after treatment with SENTINEL Flavor Tabs has begun. Based on results of clinical studies, this emergence generally occurs during the first 30-60 days. Therefore, noticeable control may not be observed until several weeks after dosing when a pre-existing infestation is present. Cooler geographic areas may have longer lag periods due to a prolonged flea life cycle. The concurrent use of an approved adulticide, like CAPSTAR may be employed depending on the severity of the infestation.

If a SENTINEL Flavor Tabs-treated dog comes in contact with a flea-infested environment, adult fleas may infest the treated animal. These adult fleas are unable to produce viable offspring. The temporary use of an adulticide product may be necessary to kill these adult fleas.

Dosage

SENTINEL Flavor Tabs are given orally, once a month, at the recommended minimum dosage of 0.23 mg/lb (0.5 mg/kg) milbemycin oxime and 4.55 mg/lb (10 mg/kg) lufenuron.

Administration: TO ENSURE ADEQUATE ABSORPTION, ALWAYS ADMINISTER SENTINEL Flavor Tabs TO DOGS IMMEDIATELY AFTER OR IN CONJUNCTION WITH A NORMAL MEAL.

SENTINEL Flavor Tabs are palatable and most dogs will consume the tablet when offered by the owner. As an alternative to direct dosing, the tablets can be hidden in food. Be certain the dog consumes the entire tablet or tablets. Administer SENTINEL Flavor Tabs to dogs, immediately after or in conjunction with a normal meal. Food is essential for adequate absorption of lufenuron. Watch the dog closely following administration to be sure the entire dose has been consumed. If it is not entirely consumed, redose with the full recommended dose as soon as possible.

SENTINEL Flavor Tabs must be administered monthly, preferably on the same date each month. Treatment with SENTINEL Flavor Tabs may begin at any time of year. In geographic areas where mosquitoes and fleas are seasonal, the treatment schedule should begin one month prior to the expected onset and should continue until the end of mosquito and flea season In areas with year-round infestations, treatment should continue through the entire year without interruption.

If a dose is missed and a 30-day interval between dosing is exceeded, administer SENTINEL Flavor Tabs immediately and resume the monthly dosing schedule. If SENTINEL Flavor Tabs replace daily diethylcarbamazine (DEC) for heartworm prevention, the first dose must be given within 30 days after the last dose of DEC.

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