Flea Control and Prevention
Moxiclear has been shown to kill adult and larval fleas within 20 minutes of contact by absorption via the flea intersegmental embranes. Stops fleas from feeding in 3-5 minutes. Fleas are not required to bite the animal to receive a lethal dose. The successive feeding activity of fleas on pets may elicit a hypersensitivity skin disorder known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Treatment of pets with Moxiclear rapidly kills fleas and reduces the incidence of this condition. Moxiclear may be used as the only product for flea control as it breaks the life cycle and kills fleas emerging from the environment to reinfest the pet. More rapid resolution of heavy environmental infestations may be obtained by additional environmental control measures using a suitable registered product. It is recommended that all dogs in the same environment should be protected by Moxiclear for Dogs and all cats with Moxiclear for Cats.
Treatment with Moxiclear should start one month before the first exposure to mosquitoes. Moxiclear must be applied at one month intervals during the time of the year when mosquitoes (which carry and transmit the heartworm larvae) are present. In many areas of Australia continuous, year-round heartworm prevention is recommended. To establish a routine, it is recommended that the same day or date be used each month to administer Moxiclear. When replacing another heartworm preventive product, the first treatment with Moxiclear must be given within one month of the last dose of the previous product.
Moxiclear may be safely applied to heartworm infected dogs and cats therefore there is no absolute requirement for a heartworm test before commencing treatment. However a diagnostic test for heartworm prior to commencing treatment is recommended to ensure the optimum health of pets.
Moxiclear treats and controls the major gastrointestinal nematodes of dogs and cats but does not control tapeworms. In order to control tapeworms use appropriate products. Pets can become reinfested with worms but regular use of Moxiclear will remove them.
Treatment and Control of Sarcoptic Mange in Dogs
Moxiclear has shown to eliminate 100% of sarcoptic mites (Sarcoptes scabiei) after a single dose. A second dose of Moxiclear a month later will result in continued improvement of the clinical signs associated with sarcoptic mange. Monthly application of Moxiclear will control any subsequent sarcoptic mite infestation.
Treatment and Control of Ear Mites
For the treatment of ear mites (Otodectes cynotis), Moxiclear is highly efficacious as a single dose. Monthly application of Moxiclear will control any subsequent ear mite infestation. To maximise efficacy thorough cleaning of the ear canal is recommended with a product that is registered for that purpose.
