Broadline for Cats is a spot on solution for use in cats with or at risk from mixed infestations by cestodes, nematodes and ectoparasites.
Broadline for Cats is exclusively indicated when all three groups are targeted at the same time. Ectoparasites - Treatment and prevention of infestations by fleas (Ctenocephalides felis). Elimination of fleas within 24 hours. One treatment of Broadline for Cats prevents further infestations for at least one month. - Prevention of environmental flea contamination by inhibiting the development of flea immature stages (eggs, larvae and pupae) for over a month. - Broadline for Cats can be used as part of a treatment strategy for the control of flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). - Treatment and prevention of infestations by ticks (Ixodes ricinus). Elimination of ticks within 48 hours.
One treatment with Broadline for Cats prevents further infestations for up to 3 weeks. - Treatment of notoedric mange (Notoedris cati). Cestodes - Treatment of infestations with tapeworms (Dipylidium caninum, Taenia taeniaeformis, Echinococcus multilocularis, Joyeuxiella pasqualei (adult), and Joyeuxiella fuhrmanni (adult). Nematodes - Treatment of infestations with gastrointestinal nematodes (L3, L4 larvae and adults of Toxocara cati, adults of Toxascaris leonina, L4 larvae and adults of Ancylostoma tubaeforme and Ancylostoma ceylanicum, and adults of Ancylostoma brazilienze).
Treatment of infestations with feline lungworms (L3 larvae, L4 larvae and adults of Aelurostrongylus abstrusus), L4 larvae and adults of Troglostrongylus brevior). - Treatment of infestations with vesical worms (Capillaria plica). - Prevention of heartworm disease (Dirofilaria immitis larvae) for one month.
Do not use Broadline in sick or convalescent animals. Do not use Broadline in rabbits. Do not use Broadline in cases of hypersensitivity to the active substances or to any of the excipients.
Special warnings for each target species When applying Broadline for Cats, special attention should be paid in long hair breeds in order to ensure that it is applied directly to the skin and not on the hair, as this could lead to a lower bioavailability of the active substances and thus, to a reduced efficacy. No data on the effect of bathing/shampooing on the efficacy of the product in cats is available. However, brief contact of the animal with water on one or two occasions within the month following application is unlikely to significantly reduce the efficacy of Broadline. As a precaution, it is not recommended to bathe animals within 2 days after treatment with Broadline. After treatment with Broadline for Cats, ticks will generally be killed within 48 hours after infestation without having a blood meal. However, since the attachment of single ticks after treatment cannot be excluded, transmission of infectious diseases cannot be completely ruled out. Tapeworm infestation may reoccur unless control of intermediate hosts such as fleas, mice etc. is undertaken. In certain individual cats Notoedres cati infestation may be severe or complicated by bacterial infections. In these severe cases concomitant treatment may be necessary. Parasite resistance to any particular class of antiparasitic drug may develop following frequent use of a compound of that class. Therefore, epidemiological information about current susceptibility of the target species should be taken into account in order to limit the possibility of a future selection for resistance.
Cats in areas endemic for heartworm, or those which have travelled to endemic areas, may be infected with adult heartworms. Although Broadline for Cats may be safely administered to cats infected with adult heartworms, no therapeutic effect against adult Dirofilaria immitis has been established. It is therefore recommended that all cats 6 months of age or more, living in areas endemic for heartworm should be tested for existing adult heartworm infestation before being treated with the Broadline for heartworm prevention. Some cats with patent Joyeuxiella spp. infestation may nevertheless harbour a high proportion of juvenile worms, which are not susceptible to the product; therefore a post-treatment follow-up is recommended in case of such infestations. To reduce re-infestation from emergence of new fleas, it is recommended that all cats in a household be treated. Other animals living in the same household should also be treated with a suitable product.
All stages of fleas can infest the cat's basket, bedding and regular resting areas such as carpets and soft furnishings. In case of massive flea infestation and at the beginning of the control measures, these areas should be treated with a suitable environmental product and then vacuumed regularly.
Spot-on application only. Do not inject, do not administer orally or via any other route. Avoid contact with the cat's eyes. It is important to apply Broadline to a skin area where the cat cannot lick it off: on the neck, in between shoulders. Avoid animals licking each other following treatment. Oral ingestion of the veterinary medicinal product resulted in common to uncommon vomiting, hyper-salivation and/or in transient neurological signs such as ataxia, disorientation, apathy and pupil dilation in safety studies.
