- Crenosoma vulpis (reduction of the level of infection),
- Angiostrongylus vasorum (reduction of the level of infection; see specific treatment schedule under dosage and administration).


Milbemax can also be used in the prevention of heartworm disease (Dirofilaria immitis), if concomitant treatment against cestodes is indicated. In this case the product should be administered monthly.



Minimum recommended dose rate: 0.5 mg milbemycin oxime and 5 mg praziquantel per kg are given orally as a single dose.


The product should be administered with or after some food.
