Profender Cat Wormer
Profender Cat Wormer 18 18
Topical vs Oral I find this product being a topical application useful and helpful. The cat we applied this product to often would give us trouble applying the topical flea remedies, she hates anything applied on her fur. Light bathing is a pain. Obviously, most cat's don't like anything applied to their bodies. I noticed improvement right away after a few day's. I did notice however, bits of dried flakes of "not sure" on the back of her neck. Has anyone seen any of this on their cat's? I will definitely use this for our other cat's. So much easier to use! 12/07/2014
Worked For Me 24 hours after treatment, I saw dead roundworms in my cat's "end-product". No more worms seen since. No adverse reactions from my cat. Gave treatment to all inside cats (4 total) since they use same litter box. No adverse reactions from the other cats. Vet tech said one treatment per year should be given to cats. So, from now on I will do this once per year. Very satisfied with this treatment. 01/24/2014
THE BEST STUFF EVER!!! I used this on an outside cat that had the worst case of worms I'd ever seen. 2 days after application all the worms were gone!!! I'm recommending this to everyone!!! 12/18/2013
This product didn't work I recently adopted a rescue kitten that had a lot of problems to begin with. He was infested with fleas and we combed all of them off of him before we even took him inside our house. We found three more fleas on him the first two days that he had been inside the house. I have washed his beds and blankets regularly since then, just to be on the safe side. We treated him with Advantage II as soon as we got the fleas off of him and have seen absolutely no more signs of fleas since those last three (which was over a month ago). Well a little over a week ago we found the live and dried up tapeworm segments on his rear end. The vet prescribed Profender for the tapeworm and after a few days I was still finding the live and dried up segments. I called the vet again and they said it could take up to a week for it all to pass, depending on how long the tapeworm was. Well today it has been almost 10 days since he was treated and I'm still finding live segments today. I called the vet yet again and they blamed it on "the environment" in my house saying that he got re-infected from fleas. That is a load of bull because there have been no signs of fleas on him since we treated him over a month ago (he has even had the second treatment of Advantage II this month as well). Our other adult cat has never had fleas and doesn't have tapeworm either. Now the vet is prescribing another de-wormer that is an oral treatment. I would strongly suggest not even bothering with Profender because I strongly believe it didn't even work in the first place and that he didn't get re-infected. He is still infected with the one that Profender didn't get rid of!! I strongly suggest not using Profender after my experience! I know that my house doesn't have fleas because I have been in a house that has had them, and you find them all over the pets, all over the house, and on the people as well. This is not the case for me. As I said before I wash his bedding and our bedding regularly and I vacuum regularly. I think my adult cat would be showing signs of fleas or tapeworm too if my kitten was being re-infected!! 12/16/2013
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

My cat only gets this once a year during her annual checkup. Is this enough? (She has no known problem with worms.)
how long after applying profender do worms and/or eggs disappear? i gave my three cats profender and kept them in their room while i sprayed and vacuumed entire house for fleas and eggs. i don't want them to come back out while they are still infected and start the cycle again.
Answer:A couple of day's
Answer:Profender rapidly enters the bloodstream and travels to the intestines, controlling and eliminating unwanted parasites. A single treatment is effective and a second treatment is not usually necessary. It can be re-applied after 30 days if re-infection occurs.
Answer:Wait 48-72 hours to apply Frontline plus.
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:After applying profender. We made sure that our cat was kept from the other cat's (one cat particular one of our males just loves her and he'll sit and groom/lick her for hours - it's sweet) if you have a multiple cat household it is best to keep them away from each other for an hour after application) and put her into a dog kennel for observation. She didn't lick any part of her body. I am surprised that your cat can lick behind their head! Since your cat didn't experience any side effects and didn't need emergency vet care, I can safely say they are okay.
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.
