Profender: Easy worming for cats

It’s extremely valuable to be able to give a tablet to your cat. If they ever become sick, you want to know that you can medicate them, hopefully without too much hassle. Ideally a cat is taught from a very young age to accept handling e.g. mouth examinations, touching of the paws and brushing. As a kitten they should have many positive handling experiences and grow up to feel ok about having their mouths opened and a tablet popped in.

This isn’t always the case however and it’s helpful to have an alternative to a tablet for worming. Bayer’s Profender™ is an Australian developed topical wormer for cats.

Unlike other topical (Spot-On) products, Profender treats all intestinal worms in cats, and does not treat for fleas or other parasites. Fleas are rare in Gungahlin, and we do not currently recommend routine flea treatment for the majority of dogs and cats. Cats who go outdoors should be wormed every 3 months, while indoor only cats shold be wormed every 6 months.

Stress-free treatment

Profender contains new technology specially formulated for your cat. Once applied to your cat’s skin it rapidly enters the bloodstream and travels to the intestines where the two active ingredients kill worms on contact.

Pre-measured tubes make application of Profender quick, simple and stress-free. Profender is applied to the skin at the back of your cat’s neck. With no need for tablets, Profender will take the stress out of worming for you and your cat.

Worm-free cats

Profender protects your cat from hookworms, roundworms and tapeworms in one easy treatment. It is the only intestinal wormer that kills all infective stages of the relevant intestinal worms in cats in Australia.

Profender is tough on worms, but gentle on your pet. Profender can be used on kittens from 8 weeks of age weighing more than 0.5 kg and it is safe to use on pregnant and lactating queens.
