Description

Sentinel® Spectrum Tasty Chews help ensure the health and happiness of your dog and your family. They are the most convenient way to provide all-round protection against the most common and dangerous parasites.

Indications Monthly treatment prevents heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis) infection; controls adult roundworm (Toxocara canis and Toxascaris leonina), immature roundworm (Toxocara canis), adult whipworm (Trichuris vulpis), adult hookworm (Ancylostoma caninum), adult tapeworm (Echinococcus granulosus, Taenia pisiformis and Dipylidium caninum), aids in the control of adult hookworm (Uncinaria stenocephala) infection, provides long term protection and control of flea (Ctenocephalides felis) infestations, and forms part of a treatment strategy for flea allergy dermatitis in dogs. Flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). The most important part of the treatment of FAD is preventing flea bites. Lufenuron reduces the number of fleas in the pet's environment to a negligible level. Treatment with lufenuron for several months has been shown to dramatically improve the clinical signs of FAD in dogs.

Prescription Required

Directions

Sentinel Spectrum should be administered orally, once every month, at the minimum dosage of 0.23 mg/lb (0.5 mg/kg) milbemycin oxime, 4.55 mg/lb (10 mg/kg) lufenuron, and 2.28 mg/lb (5 mg/kg) praziquantel. For heartworm prevention, give once monthly for at least 6 months after exposure to mosquitoes.

Body Weight Milbemycin Oxime per Chewable Lufenuron per Chewable Praziquantel per Chewable Number of Chewables

8.1 to 25 lbs. 5.75 mg 115 mg 57 mg One
25.1 to 50 lbs. 11.5 mg 230 mg 114 mg One
50.1 to 100 lbs. 23.0 mg 460 mg 228 mg One
Over 100 lbs. Administer the appropriate combination of chewables

To ensure adequate absorption, always administer Sentinel Spectrum to dogs immediately after or in conjunction with a normal meal

Sentinel Spectrum may be offered to the dog by hand or added to a small amount of dog food. The chewable should be administered in a manner that encourages the dog to chew, rather than to swallow without chewing. Chewables may be broken into pieces and fed to dogs that normally swallow treats whole. Care should be taken that the dog consumes the complete dose, and treated animals should be observed a few minutes after administration to ensure that no part of the dose is lost or rejected. If it is suspected that any of the doses have been lost, redosing is recommended.

Heartworm Prevention:

Sentinel Spectrum should be administered at monthly intervals beginning within 1 month of the dog's first seasonal exposure to mosquitoes and continuing until at least 6 months after the dog's last seasonal exposure (see Effectiveness). Sentinel Spectrum may be administered year-around without interruption. When switching from another heartworm preventative product to Sentinel Spectrum, the first dose of Sentinel Spectrum should be given within a month of the last dose of the former product.

Flea Treatment and Prevention:

Treatment with Sentinel Spectrum may begin at any time of the year, preferably starting one month before fleas become active and continuing monthly through the end of flea season. In areas where fleas are common year-round, monthly treatment with Sentinel Spectrum should continue the entire year without interruption.

To minimize the likelihood of flea reinfestation, it is important to treat all animals within a household with an approved flea protection product, as necessary.

Intestinal Nematode and Cestode Treatment and Control: Dogs may be exposed to and can become infected with roundworms, whipworms, hookworms, and tapeworms throughout the year, regardless of season or climate. Clients should be advised of appropriate measures to prevent reinfection of their dog with intestinal parasites. Because the prepatent period for E. multilocularis may be as short as 26 days, dogs treated at the labeled monthly intervals may become reinfected and shed eggs between treatments.

Warnings: Not for use in humans. Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children.

Contraindications: There are no known contraindications to the use of Sentinel Spectrum.

Precautions: Treatment with fewer than 6 monthly doses after the last exposure to mosquitoes may not provide complete heartworm prevention (see Effectiveness).

Before administration of Sentinel Spectrum, dogs should be tested for existing heartworm infections. At the discretion of the veterinarian, infected dogs should be treated to remove adult heartworms. Sentinel Spectrum is not effective against adult D. immitis.

Mild, transient hypersensitivity reactions, such as labored breathing, vomiting, hypersalivation, and lethargy, have been noted in some dogs treated with milbemycin oxime carrying a high number of circulating microfilariae. These reactions are presumably caused by the release of protein from dead or dying microfilariae.

Do not use in puppies less than six weeks of age.

Do not use in dogs or puppies less than two pounds of body weight.

The safety of Sentinel Spectrum has not been evaluated in dogs used for breeding or in lactating females. Studies have been performed with milbemycin oxime and lufenuron alone.

Great product, great price
I love using the Sentinel Spectrum for my dog. As a service dog, I need to make sure that she is healthy and safe to go into public restaurants and grocery stores. With Sentinel Spectrum, I never have to worry. She has been taking it for 6 years and she always gets a gold star from the vet! Two big thumbs up for me.
