Felpreva brought to you by Vetoquinol
Visit the Vetoquinol stand at VET Festival 2022 to learn more about Felpreva®.
Felpreva is the first spot-on parasiticide for cats that covers all major types of feline parasites in the UK (including tapeworms) in a single three-monthly spot-on and is active for 13 weeks against fleas and ticks. It covers other endoparasites like gastrointestinal roundworms as well as lungworms and is licensed for the treatment of cats with, or at risk from, mixed parasitic infestations.
Felpreva is part of the endectocide class of veterinary parasiticides that covers both internal (endo) and external (ecto) parasites. It is a combination of active substances emodepside and praziquantel, with tigolaner, a novel active ingredient.
It is estimated that parasiticides make up the largest segment in the companion animal veterinary pharmaceutical market worldwide, highlighting the complex choices vets are often faced with when recommending combination treatments.
On top of this, applying parasiticides can be a difficult process for owners, with 43% stating that giving medication to their cats makes them feel guilty, stressed, or worried.
This distress may contribute to why owners are treating cats less frequently than recommended by the European Scientific Counsel Companion Animal Parasites (ESCCAP). For cats with outdoor access, ESCCAP advocates sampling or worming no less than four times per year, with certain risk groups requiring more frequent treatments.
Come and see us on stand 45b to learn how Felpreva could help your cat owners and to receive your complimentary cat-shaped water bottle!
