Small Mammals + Medications

  • Fenbendazole is used to control roundworms in dogs, cats and rabbits and some types of tapeworms in dogs and cats.

  • Imidacloprid is a topical insecticidal agent prescribed by your veterinarian to treat fleas on dogs, cats and rabbits. It can also help in control of allergic skin disorders due to fleas.

  • Once your pet is prescribed long-term medication, ongoing monitoring of their health status is very important.  Regular monitoring at 6 monthly intervals, including laboratory tests is recommended, to ensure that everything is proceeding to plan.  For higher risk patients this can be more frequent.
