Profender Cat Wormer
Profender Cat Wormer 14 14
Unexpected consequences We adopted two male cats - one 14 lbs and one 7 lbs. - and they tolerated the application pretty well. Got this from the vet as she did not have any Drontal at the time. The smell is not as overpowering as some topical flea treatments. The amount of liquid packaged for large cats is a lot so even though you apply it to a small area, the ensuing scratching spreads it into an area on the body that could be reached by the cat's tongue. The parasite positive cat already had loose bowels before the treatment but fair warning, this stuff gave both cats projectile pooping! I'm sure by the time the drug has run its course, things down South should normalize (crossing fingers). Until then, keep a disinfecting rag handy :) For the cost, I would rather chance pilling the cats with Drontal. 11/01/2013
Stress free?? They advertise this product as being a stress free way of de-worming your cat as opposed to the tablet variety. Stress free in whose opinion? I found the whole process to be very stressful. My cat absolutely hated the drops going on and ran around like crazy trying to get it off. There is the worry that your cat will ingest the stuff as contrary to popular veterinary belief, a cat can groom the back of it's neck. It must really irritate as well as she wouldn't stop grooming and scratching the area and was unhappy about us touching her there. The next day she was lethargic and quiet, so one wonders what the heck we are doing to our pet by forcing these poisons into them. Okay, the worms have to go, but unless you are absolutely certain that your cat has worms or if you have just picked her up from a shelter, routine de-worming is to be avoided. Does it work though? I don't know and it is very hard to ascertain. 10/11/2013
Adverse reactions I can not recommend this product simply because it has caused adverse reactions on my cat, that have been going on for days. She seems jumpy and lethargic, little appetite. The product was administered over 3.5 days ago, and you'd think she would have no more adverse reactions by now, but she still exhibits them, altho not quite as strong as at first. Other wormers have not caused such severe reactions as this Profender product has. I have no idea if is has been effective on any worms or not. All I know is my cat is not herself since giving this to her. 09/18/2013
Didn't Work I used Profender on my cat, but she still has tapeworms. I just bought the pills, hopefully they work better. She doesn't have fleas, she was treated for fleas and flea eggs before giving her Profender. 09/12/2013
SAFE AND EFFECTIVE ON HEALTHY CATS I've use this on all three cats with success.Making sure cats are healthy and cleared for any risks.So far this produt is superior to any wormers on the market.Easy to use and effective.I would hesitate to use any medication on debilitated or extremely young or old cats without the sound advice of a veterinarian. 08/26/2013

I put this on one of my cats but he of course is able to lick part of the area behind his head. I am sure he was able to lick some of it because he has had diareaha. Should I have any other concerns?
Answer:¬†Probably not. Even when put well above the cat's shoulders, subsequent scratching of the area will spread the liquid into a reachable area for ingestion. Unless your cat LIKES the taste, a small amount of ingestion will produce temporary side effects. After all, the drug is designed to get into the digestive system via blood circulation. As always, read package info.
I am confused. My vet administered Profender for a mild tapeworm infection that had seemed to go away on its own already. But also sent me home with a dose of Revolution to be used in 1 week for fleas she does not seem to have right now, and another does of Profender to be given 2 weeks after the first. Nowhere have I seen that you need to give Profender every 2 weeks. The cat is 9 years old and this seems like way too much.
Answer:¬†Our vet gave us Profender yesterday for our 9 year old cat, but we are to give her this treatment only once a month. I wouldn't give it every two weeks. That doesn't even sound right.
Answer:¬†Perhaps advantage may be safer than revolution.Just from the reviews.
Answer:¬†I would wait a month and give the second dose.Not sure about the combination of revolution and wormer.In caution I would wait a week or two to apply any flea topical.Fleas do carry tapeworm.All it takes is one ingested flea to infect a cat.
Answer:¬†Per manufacturer guidelines, Profender is normally given as a one time dose. However, you will need to speak to your veterinarian as to why he or she is recommending a second dosing. Revolution is given to pets for flea prevention, in addition to prevention for other parasites, even if the pet does not currently have a flea infestation.
