Responsible use of parasiticides

Responsible use of parasiticides includes a risk assessment to determine the needs of individual cats, based on lifestyle factors and local parasite risks.

The European Counsel Companion Animal Parasites (ESCCAP) are committed to raising awareness of parasite risks and proven control measures to protect companion animals against parasites. Their guidelines and recommendations provide sound advice for clinicians to support a benefit-risk-based approach to parasiticide prescription.

When considering fleas, ESCCAP acknowledges that fleas present a year-round risk to cats1, and it is commonplace in practice to ensure full annual protection. Worming frequency is dependent on several risk factors with ESCCAP stating that outdoor cats should be protected against roundworm and tapeworm at least four times a year2.

Felpreva®’s unique combination of ingredients provides three-month protection against fleas and ticks alongside convenient quarterly worming… all with just four applications per year.

Benefit/risk-based approach

There are many factors which could influence a prescription for parasiticides including:

  • The cat’s age
  • Whether they are pregnant or lactating
  • Are they allowed outdoors?
  • Do they live in a multi-pet household?
  • Are they fed raw meat?
  • Are they a prolific hunter?
  • Do they live with children under five years of age

To support this risk-based approach and the launch of Felpreva®, Vetoquinol have produced a simple parasite risk-assessment form for cat owners to complete before their consultation. The form can be accessed via the QR code displayed to pet owners on a waiting room poster. Pet owners can complete the simple assessment and share their answers with themselves, who can use this to prescribe the most appropriate treatment regimen for that pet.
