Emodepside is a substrate for P-glycoprotein. Co-treatment with other drugs that are P-glycoprotein substrates/inhibitors (for example, ivermectin and other antiparasitic macrocyclic lactones, erythromycin [antibiotic], prednisolone [steroids) and cyclosporine [immunosuppressant]) could give rise to pharmacokinetic drug interactions. The potential clinical consequences of such interactions have not been investigated. If your cat is receiving any medications, please contact your vet to discuss this before applying the product. Similarly, please inform your vet that you are using this product if s/he provides your cat with any medication.

Emodepside 15 mg
Praziquantel 60 mg
Butylhydroxyanisole (E320; as antioxidant) 3.78 mg
For external use only.
The cat should be accurately weighed prior to treatment to ensure that the correct pipette size is used.
Remove one pipette from package. Hold pipette in upright position, twist and pull off cap and use the opposite end of the cap to break the seal.
Part the fur on the cat's neck at the base of the skull until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette on the skin and squeeze firmly several times to empty the contents directly onto the skin. Application on the base of the skull will minimise the ability of the cat to lick the product off.
The recommended minimum doses are 3 mg emodepside / kg body weight and 12 mg praziquantel / kg body weight, equivalent to 0.14 ml Dronspot / kg body weight. For the treatment of roundworms and tapeworms a single administration per treatment is effective.
