Lopper på hunde dør indenfor 1 døgn efter behandling. En behandling forebygger yderligere

loppeangreb i 4 uger. Præparatet kan anvendes som en del af behandlingsstrategien til kontrol

af loppebetinget allergisk dermatitis (Flea Allergy Dermatits (FAD)), hvor diagnosen er stillet

af dyrlægen.

4.3

Kontraindikationer

Diende hvalpe under 8 uger behandles ikke.

Bør ikke anvendes til dyr med kendt overfølsomhed over for det aktive stof eller over for et

eller flere af hjælpestofferne.

4.4

Særlige advarsler for hver dyreart

Ingen.

4.5

Særlige forsigtighedsregler vedrørende brugen

Særlige forsigtighedsregler for dyret

Dette præparat er kun til udvortes brug og må ikke gives oralt.

Undgå at pipettens indhold kommer i kontakt med øjne eller mund hos dyret.

Tillad ikke nyligt behandlede dyr at slikke på hinanden.

Særlige forsigtighedsregler for personer, der administrerer lægemidlet

Vask hænderne grundigt efter behandling af dyret.

Ved spild af præparatet på huden afvaskes denne med sæbe og vand.

Personer med kendt hudoverfølsomhed kan være særligt følsomme overfor dette præparat.

Undgå at øjne og mund kommer i kontakt med præparatet.

Hvis præparatet kommer i øjnene ved et uheld, gennemskylles de med vand. Søg lægehjælp

hvis hud- eller øjenirritationer varer ved, eller hvis præparatet ved et uheld sluges.

Spis, drik og ryg ikke under påføringen.

4.6

Bivirkninger

Præparatet smager bittert og spytsekretion kan lejlighedsvist fremkomme, hvis hunden

slikker på applikationsstedet umiddelbart efter behandling. Dette er ikke tegn på forgiftning

og forsvinder indenfor nogle minutter uden behandling (se pkt. 4.9 Dosering og

indgivelsesmåde”).

I meget sjældne tilfælde kan hudreaktioner så som hårtab, rødmen af huden, kløen og sår

opstå. Nervøsitet og desorientering kan også forekomme. Savlen og nervøse tegn så som

ataxi, tremor og depression har været observeret for hunde.

4.7

Drægtighed, diegivning eller æglægning

Der er ikke set fosterskader, teratogene eller reproduktive toksiske effekter i studier med

imidacloprid hos rotter og kaniner. Undersøgelser på drægtige og diegivende tæver samt

deres afkom er begrænsede. Indtil videre er der ikke tegn på bivirkninger hos disse dyr.

4.8

Interaktion med andre lægemidler og andre former for interaktion

Der er ikke set interaktioner mellem dette produkt i den dobbelte rekommanderede dosis og

følgende almindelige anvendte veterinære præparater: fenthion, lufenuron, milbemycin,

febantel, pyrantel og praziquantel. Der er heller ikke set interaktioner i forbindelse med en

bred vifte af rutine behandlinger, herunder vaccinationer.

Reinfestation af nye lopper fra omgivelser kan fortsætte i 6 uger eller længere efter

startbehandlingen. Mere end en behandling kan derfor være nødvendig i tilfælde, hvor antallet

af lopper i omgivelserne er stort. For at reducere reinfestation fra omgivelserne anbefales det i

tillæg til behandling at bruge et egnet bekæmpelsesmiddel mod voksne lopper og deres

udviklingsstadier.

Præparatet forbliver effektivt, også selv om dyret bliver vådt, f.eks. efter svømning eller heftig

regn. Imidlertid kan genbehandling blive nødvendig tidligere end 4 uger ved hyppig

svømning eller vask, afhængig af forekomsten af lopper i omgivelserne. Der må dog ikke

genbehandles oftere end 1 gang om ugen.

I tilfælde af infestation med pelslus, anbefales en yderligere dyrlægeundersøgelse 30 dage

efter behandling, da nogle dyr kræver en 2. behandling.

Administrationsmåde:

Tag 1 pipette ud af pakningen. Til hunde på 40 kg eller derover bruges 2 x 4.0 ml pipetter.

Hold pipetten opret, drej og træk hætten af. Vend hætten og sæt den på pipetten. Drej rundt

og træk hætten af igen for derved at bryde forseglingen.

Hunde under 25 kg:

Med hunden i stående stilling deles pelsen mellem skulderbladene indtil huden er synlig.

Placér spidsen af pipetten på huden og tryk fast adskillige gange for at tømme indholdet ud

direkte på huden.

38494_spc.doc

Side 3 af 6

Hunde på 25 kg og derover

Hunden skal stå op under påføringen. Pipettens indhold påføres 3 eller 4 steder på ryggen fra

skulderblad til halerod. På hvert påføringssted deles pelsen indtil huden er synlig.

Placér spidsen af pipetten på huden og tryk en del af indholdet ud direkte på huden.

For alle hunde:

Påfør præparatet i tilpas mængde ad gangen, og undgå overskud der kan løbe ned ad siden på

hunden.

Præparatet smager bittert og spytsekretion kan lejlighedsvist forekomme, hvis hunden slikker

på applikationsstedet umiddelbart efter behandling. Dette er ikke tegn på forgiftning og

forsvinder indenfor nogle minutter uden behandling. Korrekt applikation minimerer hundens

mulighed for at slikke præparatet i sig.

Anvend kun præparatet på uskadt hud. Lad ikke dyr, der lige er behandlet, slikke på hinanden.

4.10

Overdosering

Ingen kliniske bivirkninger blev bemærket, hverken efter brug af individuelle doser på op til

200 mg/kg legemsvægt (5-8 gange terapeutisk dosis) eller ved daglig behandling med 100

mg/kg legemsvægt i 5 på hinanden følgende dage, eller ved ugentlige behandlinger på 5

gange maximum dosis i 8 på hinanden følgende uger.

Ved overdosering, eller ved indtagelse ved at slikke på applikationsstedet, kan der i sjældne

tilfælde opstå forstyrrelser af nervesystemet (så som kramper, tremor, ataxi, mydriasis,

miosis, sløvhed).

Forgiftningstegn er usandsynlige hos dyr ved fejlagtig oral indtagelse af Advantage Vet.

Behandlingen bør være symptomatisk under opsyn af en dyrlæge. Ingen specifik antidot

kendes, men brug af aktiv kul kan lindre symptomerne.

FARMAKOLOGISKE OG IMMUNOLOGISKE OPLYSNINGER

Farmakoterapeutisk gruppe: Antiparasitært middel

ATCvet-kode: QP 53 AX 17

38494_spc.doc

Side 4 af 6

5.1

Farmakodynamiske egenskaber

Imidacloprid

1-(6-Chloro-3-pyridylmethyl)-N-nitro-imidazolidin-2-ylideneamine

middel mod ektoparasitter tilhørende en ny gruppe af chloronicotinyl forbindelser. Kemisk

nærmere beskrevet som et chloronicotinyl nitroguanidin.

Imidacloprid binder sig med høj affinitet til nicotinerge acetylcholin receptorer i den

postsynaptiske del af centralnervesystemet (CNS). Den påfølgende hæmning af den

cholinerge transmission hos insekter resulterer i lammelse og død. På CNS hos pattedyr har

imidacloprid derimod praktisk taget ingen effekt pga. den svage affinitet til pattedyrs

nicotinerge receptorer og den postulerede svage penetration gennem blod/hjerne barrieren i

CNS. Den lave farmakologiske aktivitet hos pattedyr understøttes af safety-studier med

systemisk administration af subletale doser af imidacloprid til kaniner, mus og rotter.

I videregående undersøgelser har imidacloprid, udover effekt på voksne lopper, også vist

effekt på loppelarver i omgivelserne af det behandlede dyr. Larvestadier i dyrets omgivelser

dør efter kontakt med det behandlede dyr.

5.2

Farmakokinetiske egenskaber

Præparatet

beregnet

kutan

administration.

følge

anbefalede

administrationsmåde til hund, vil præparatet hurtigt fordeles ud over dyret.

Imidacloprids systemiske absorption er meget lav, forbigående og uden relevans for den

kliniske effekt, som vist ved overdoserings-studier og serumkinetik-studier på rotter og

målgruppe-dyrene. Dette er yderligere blevet vist i en undersøgelse, hvor lopper ikke blev

dræbt hos behandlede dyr, hvor det aktive stof var fjernet fra dyrets hud og pels.
