Profender Cat Wormer
Profender Cat Wormer 17 17
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
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

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.
