Zoetis Schweiz GmbH

Entwurmungspaste für Katzen

ad pastam

Fachinformationen Wirkstoffe (CliniPharm)

Pyrantel

Eigenschaften / Wirkungen

Banminth "Katze" ist ein geschmacksneutrales, gut verträgliches Anthelminthikum zur

Prophylaxe und Therapie des Spul- und Hakenwurmbefalls bei Katzen. Es entfaltet seine

Wirksamkeit durch Blockierung der neuromuskulären Schaltstellen der Nematoden, was

zu deren irreversiblen Lähmung und nachfolgender Ausscheidung mit dem Kot führt.

Indikationen

Banminth "Katze" ist wirksam gegen die wichtigsten bei Katzen vorkommenden

Nematoden wie Toxocara cati (mystax), Toxascaris leonina und Ancylostoma tubaeforme.

Die Dosierung beträgt 20 mg Pyrantel-Base pro kg Körpergewicht (KGW), entsprechend

0,5 g Paste pro kg KGW. Unterdosierungen sind zu vermeiden. Ein Injektor zu 3 g reicht

für die Behandlung einer Katze bis zu 6 kg. Die für leichtere Tiere benötigte Pastenmenge

kann mittels des praxisgerechten, graduierten Oralinjektors leicht abgemessen werden,

wobei ein Teilstrich der Pastenmenge entspricht, die für die Entwurmung von 1 kg

Körpergewicht notwendig ist. Um eine richtige Dosierung sicherzustellen, sollte der Kolben

vor der Dosierung auf Null gesetzt werden. Vor der Verabreichung die Kappe entfernen

und den Kolben vorsichtig drücken, bis die Dichtung die Nullmarke erreicht hat.

Überschüssige Paste ist zu verwerfen.

Dank der guten Verträglichkeit des Präparates soll und kann Banminth "Katze" schon bei

Jungtieren angewendet werden.

Für die routinemässige Verabreichung von Banminth "Katze" sind folgende Zeitpunkte

empfehlenswert:

Jungtiere:

-erste Behandlung ab dem 10. Lebenstag

-weitere Behandlungen alle 2 Wochen bis zum Alter von 8 - 10 Wochen

-vor einer Impfung

-im ersten Lebensjahr 3 - 4 x

Erwachsene Tiere:

-mindestens 1 - 2 × jährlich

Zuchtkätzinnen:

-während der Brunst (Ranzzeit)

10 Tage vor und 10 Tage nach dem Werfen (zusammen mit den

Jungtieren!)

Allgemeine Grundsätze:

eine Entwurmung soll immer nach einem positiven Befund einer parasitologischen

Kotuntersuchung durchgeführt werden.

-bei Befall mit Spulwürmern ist die Behandlung jeweils nach 2 Wochen zu wiederholen.

Die zur Entwurmung nötige Pastenmenge ist auf einmal zu verabreichen. Dies geschieht

vorzugsweise, indem das Präparat aus dem Dosierinjektor in kleineren Portionen hinter

einem oberen Eckzahn auf die Zunge der Katze gedrückt wird.

Die abgemessene Pastenmenge kann aber auch mit dem Futter vermischt oder auf die

Pfoten gestrichen werden; nach anfänglichem Zögern erfolgt die Aufnahme bereitwillig. Es

sind keine Unverträglichkeitssymptome zu erwarten. Von Diätmassnahmen kann

abgesehen werden. Die dank planmässiger Entwurmungsbehandlungen erlangte

Wurmfreiheit führt zu einer erheblichen Vitalitätssteigerung der Tiere und fördert deren

allgemeines Wohlbefinden. Nicht zuletzt sind diese Massnahmen auch angezeigt im

Hinblick auf eine Gesundheitsgefährdung von Kontaktpersonen, namentlich von Kindern.

Anwendungseinschränkungen

Kontraindikationen

Keine

Vorsichtsmassnahmen

Banminth "Katze" besitzt einen ausserordentlich hohen therapeutischen Index (eine mehr

als 120-fache Überdosierung wird ohne toxische Symptome vertragen) und kann ohne

Bedenken Katzen jeden Alters verabreicht werden.

Da Pyrantehlhydrogenpamoat keine teratogenen Eigenschaften besitzt, dürfen mit diesem

Präparat auch tragende und säugende Kätzinnen ohne Risiken behandelt werden.

Unerwünschte Wirkungen

VetVigilance: Pharmacovigilance-Meldung erstatten

Sonstige Hinweise

Das Präparat darf nur bis zu dem auf der Packung mit "Exp" bezeichneten Datum

verwendet werden.

Bei Raumtemperatur (15 - 25°C) aufbewahren.

Tierarzneimittel ausser Reichweite von Kindern aufbewahren!

Statement from FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D., on the FDA’s new consideration of labeling for sesame allergies

Statement from FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D., on the FDA’s new consideration of labeling for sesame allergies

Food allergies have touched the lives of most of us. Thousands of Americans experience life-threatening, food-related reactions each year, and an estimated 20 people die from them annually. In some cases, such reactions occur despite a careful reading of packaged food labels by conscientious consumers. To me, that’s unacceptable. The FDA is committed to advancing our efforts to help ensure that Americans have access to the information they need about common allergens in packaged foods.
