Dosage Dosage schedule The recommended minimum doses for cats are 10 mg/kg body weight imidacloprid and 1.0 mg/kg body weight moxidectin, equivalent to 0.1ml/kg body weight Advocate for cats. Dosage schedule for ferrets: one pipette of Advocate spot-on solution for small cats and ferrets (0.4 ml) should be administered per animal. Do not exceed the recommended dose. The recommended minimum doses for dogs are 10 mg/kg body weight imidacloprid and 2.5 mg/kg body weight moxidectin, equivalent to 0.1ml/kg body weight Advocate for dogs. The treatment schedule for all species should be based on individual veterinary diagnosis and on the local epidemiological situation. Cats (Refer to Table 1) Table 1: Weight of CAT [kg] Pipette size to be used Volume (ml) Imidacloprid [mg/kg bw] Moxidectin [mg/kg bw] ≤4kg Advocate for small cats and ferrets 0.4 minimum of 10 minimum of 1 >4-8kg Advocate for large cats 0.8 10-20 1-2 >8kg the appropriate combination of pipettes Flea treatment and prevention (Ctenocephalides felis) (Cats & Dogs) One treatment prevents future flea infestation for 4 weeks. Existing pupae in the environment may emerge for 6 weeks or longer after treatment is initiated, depending upon climatic conditions. Therefore, it may be necessary to combine Advocate treatment with environmental treatments aimed at breaking the flea life cycle in the surroundings. This can result in a more rapid reduction in the household flea population. The product should be administered at monthly intervals when used as part of a treatment strategy for flea allergy dermatitis. Flea treatment and prevention (Ctenocephalides felis) (Ferrets) One treatment prevents future flea infestation for 3 weeks. Under heavy flea pressure it may be necessary to repeat the dose after 2 weeks. Treatment of ear mite infestation (Otodectes cynotis) (Cats & Dogs) A single dose of the product should be administered. In dogs, loose debris should be gently removed from the external ear canal at each treatment. For both cats and dogs, a further veterinary examination 30 days after treatment is recommended as some animals may require a second treatment. Do not apply directly to the ear canal. Treatment of notoedric mange (Notoedres cati) (Cats) A single dose of the product should be administered. Treatment of the lungworm Eucoleus aerophilus (syn. Capillaria aerophila) (adults) (Cats) A single dose of the product should be administered. Prevention of Aelurostrongylus abstrusus (Cats) The product should be administered monthly. Treatment of Aelurostrongylus abstrusus (Cats) Advocate should be administered monthly for three consecutive months. Treatment of the eye worm Thelazia callipaeda (adults) (Cats & Dogs) A single dose of the product should be administered. Prevention of heartworm disease (D.immitis) (Cats, Ferrets & Dogs) Cats, ferrets and dogs in areas endemic for heartworm, or those which have travelled to endemic areas, may be infected with adult heartworms. Therefore prior to treatment with Advocate, the advice provided in Contra-Indications and Warnings etc should be considered. For prevention of heartworm disease, the product must be applied at regular monthly intervals during the time of the year when mosquitoes (the intermediate hosts which carry and transmit D. immitis larvae) are present. The product may be administered throughout the year. The first dose may be given after first possible exposure to mosquitoes, but not more than one month after this exposure. Treatment should continue at regular monthly intervals until 1 month after the last exposure to mosquitoes. To establish a treatment routine, it is recommended that the same day or date be used each month. When replacing another heartworm preventative product in a heartworm prevention programme, the first treatment with Advocate must be given within 1 month of the last dose of the former medication. In non-endemic areas there should be no risk of animals having heartworm. Therefore, they can be treated without special precautions. Roundworm and hookworm treatment (Toxocara cati and Ancylostoma tubaeforme)(Cats) In areas endemic for heartworm, monthly treatment may significantly reduce the risk of re-infection caused by the respective roundworms and hookworms. In areas non-endemic for heartworm, the product can be used as part of a seasonal prevention programme against fleas and gastrointestinal nematodes. Method of administration For external use only. Remove one pipette from the package. Then hold the pipette in an upright position, and twist and pull off the cap. Reverse the cap and use it to twist and remove the seal from the pipette, as shown. See Figure 1. Description: h-298 Figure 1: Opening a pipette Cats and Ferrets Part the fur on the animal's neck at the base of the skull until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette on the skin and squeeze the pipette firmly several times to empty its contents directly onto the skin. Application at the base of the skull will minimise the opportunity for the animal to lick the product. Apply only to undamaged skin. See Figure 2. Description: h-530 Figure 2: Administration to the Cat or Ferret Use During Pregnancy and Lactation The safety of the veterinary medicinal product has not been established during pregnancy and lactation. Laboratory studies with either imidacloprid or moxidectin in rats and rabbits have not produced any evidence of teratogenic, foetotoxic or maternotoxic effects. Use only according to the risk-benefit assessment by the responsible veterinarian.
