- Why ask your veterinarian about Profender?
Intestinal parasites love your cat (almost as much as you do.)
Intestinal parasites are worms that grow, feed and shelter inside a host animal – in this case your cat. When left untreated, they can cause a great deal of damage to your pet’s health and could even spread disease to you and your family (zoonotic infection).
By staying vigilant about regular veterinary care and asking your veterinarian about Profender®, you have the power to help protect your cat from intestinal parasites.
Safe use of this product has not been evaluated in cats less than 8 weeks of age or weighing less than 2.2 lbs (1 dg), in cats used for breeding, during pregnancy or in lactating queens.
Treat the worms that matter the most to your cat.
Profender® is a topical broad-spectrum cat deworming medication that treats and controls tapeworm, roundworm, and hookworm infections in your cat.
Even if your cat is not a big fan of the great outdoors and prefers the peace and comfort of living inside, he can still be at risk for worms. This is because nasty critters that can be found in the home like fleas, mice, and even cockroaches are able to pass on worms to your cat.
Cats infected can experience a broad range of symptoms, including diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss, and difficulty breathing. Consult your veterinarian if you’re concerned your cat may have worms.

How does Profender® work?
The active ingredients in Profender® are absorbed topically through your cat’s skin reaching the intestinal tract to kill and remove worms.
Always consult your veterinarian. The presence of parasites should be confirmed by fecal examination or based on clinical signs and history.FIND NEAR ME Product Label

Did you know your pets can pass certain parasite infections on to you? Easily help reduce the risk of this (Zoonosis) from happening to your family and protect your pets by following these simple preventative measures:
- Practice good hygiene. Wash your hands regularly, especially after cleaning up pet waste or working in the garden.
- Children should avoid playing in areas animals are known to go to the bathroom.
- Cover sandboxes and keep litter boxes clean.
Protect Your Cat
- Have your cat seen regularly by a veterinarian, including fecal examinations and maintain an appropriate deworming schedule.
- Have your cat on a regular flea and intestinal parasite preventive product. This is important because fleas can pass tapeworms onto your cat.
- Indoor cats, as well as cats that go outdoors infrequently, are still at risk for intestinal parasites. They can contract them in a variety of ways, including other pets.
Make vet trips easier on you and your cat.
Put treats, toys and soft bedding in your cat's carrier and leave it around the house so he associates it with a positive experience.
During the car ride, cover the carrier with a towel or cloth to keep him from becoming disoriented.
Once you get to the examination room, open the carrier on the floor and let your cat become acclimated to the odors and sounds on his own.
