Nitenpyram and Lufenuron are a complete flea program and should be used together. This is because Nitenpyram is quick relief, killing only the adult fleas. Lufenuron is the remedy that kills the eggs and larva and is used once a month for disrupting the flea cycle (maintenance also). Here are those instructions:
Dog or Cat 2 - 25 lbs. =11.4 mg
Dog 25.1 - 125 lbs =57 mg
This is for 11.4mg dosing for both dogs and cats weighing 2 to 25 lbs.
5 grams = 438 doses
20 grams = 1,754 doses
50 grams = 4386 doses
This is for 57mg dosing for dogs weighing 25 to125 lbs.
5 grams = 87 doses
20 grams = 350 doses
50 grams = 877 doses
Nitenpyram has a very strong taste so you will probably need to hide it in a piece of food or capsulize it. Some mix it with peanut butter or some special treat that will hide the aweful taste! If you choose to capsulize it, I have shopped around and found pipingrock.com to be even cheaper than E bay. It could have changed though since I bought my last bottle of empty capsules, still have plenty.
Administering Nitenpyram: Once a day for each pet for one or two days usually does it. For severe infestations, can be used for up to 5 days and is known for it's fast action and safe relief. Please only dose for the 5 days and then make sure to wait at least 14 days in between so that the fleas don't become resistant to Nitenpyram. This is very important.
Extra-small Dogs 1 to 5 pounds the monthly dosage should contain 75.mg of lufenuron. Small Dogs 6 to 15 pounds the monthly dosage should contain 150.mg of lufenuron. Medium Dogs 16 to 45 pounds the monthly dosage should contain 300.mg of lufenuron. Large Dogs 46 to 89 pounds the monthly dosage should contain 500.mg of lufenuron. Extra-Large Dogs 90 pounds and above should take 750.mg so 750 milligrams = .75 grams.
This is for 75mg dosing for dogs weighing 1 to 5 lbs.
15 grams = 200 doses
30 grams = 399 doses
60 grams = 798 doses
100 grams = 1,330 doses
This is for 150mg dosing for dogs weighing 6 to 15 lbs.
15 grams = 100 doses
30 grams = 199 doses
60 grams = 399 doses
100 grams = 667 doses
This is for 300mg dosing for dogs weighing 16 to 45 lbs.
15 grams = 50 doses
30 grams = 100 doses
60 grams = 200 doses
100 grams = 334 doses
This is for 500mg dosing for dogs weighing 46 to 89 lbs.
15 grams = 30 doses
30 grams = 60 doses
60 grams = 120 doses
100 grams = 200 doses
This is for 500mg dosing for dogs weighing 46 to 89 lbs.
15 grams = 20 doses
30 grams = 40 doses
60 grams = 80 doses
100 grams = 133 doses
1 gram = 1000mg 28.3 grams = 1 ounce
Only about 40% of any oral dose is absorbed into the dog's system (the rest is lost in the feces). For maximum oral absorption (best effect), Lufenuron should be mixed in with a high fat content meal. It has little taste and smell and is easily hid in the dog's food. If you have an infestation, new fleas will be hatching daily from eggs the fleas have already laid. Nitenpyram kills the adult fleas within 30 minutes after ingestion, whereas, Lufenuron is mainly used as a monthly inhibitor killing the larvae, eggs, and not the adult. So as you can see they are best used together to break the flea cycle.
For a good de-wormer, I have added fenbendazole to my website where you can purchase it in bulk for a super savings!
Lufenuron is an over the counter veterinarian drug that is very safe for mammals. It attacks and destroys chitin which is what flea eggs, flea larva, certain kind of tape worms, and some other types of parasites, insects have in their systems. It also is the un-penetrative wall that protects the parasitic fungus that seems to be a growing concern for both pets and humans, (Candida is one of those that attack humans and pets). To give you a good example of what chitin is, is the crab. It's shell is made of Chitin.
Cat dosages are:
Small Cats - each monthly dose should contain 225 milligrams of lufenuron for cats up to 9 pounds.
Large Cats - each monthly dose contains 300 milligrams of lufenuron for cats 9 pounds and up.
This is for 225mg dosing for cats weighing up to 9 lbs.
15 grams = 67 doses
30 grams = 132 doses
60 grams = 264 doses
100 grams = 440 doses
This is for 300mg dosing for cats weighing 9 lbs. and up
15 grams = 50 doses
30 grams = 100 doses
60 grams = 200 doses
100 grams = 333 doses
Cats are dosed with Lufenuron at a dosage of around 30mg/kg (higher dose than the dog) orally once a month (every 30 days). Much of the oral dose of Lufenuron is not absorbed into the cat's body (lost into the feces) and some of that which is absorbed is immediately excreted by the bile and therefore also lost into the cat's feces. Thus the dose rate of oral Lufenuron for cats is higher than the oral dose for dogs.
Please be aware that the die off from both Lufenuron and Nitenpyram can cause allergic reactions, especially in the elder. As die off occurs, they expel toxins and it is these toxins that causes the allergic effect and not the lufenuron and nitenpyram. If this happens, contact your local veterinarian as soon as possible. This is very rare but wanted to make sure that you are aware that this could happen to a loved one. So please watch your pets during dosing.
Nitenpyram and Lufenuron can be used together, on the same day, but only once a day for Nitenpyram and once a month for Lufenuron. They are both safe to use in pregnant and lactating cats and dogs. Puppies and kittens four weeks of age and older and 2 pounds of body weight or greater can be treated with Lufenuron and Nitenpyram. Additionally, even though Lufenuron accumulates within the fat of milk, it has not been found to have any negative effect on nursing puppies and kittens.
If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to ask and send them to email@example.com. I would be more then happy to help if you need it for figuring dosing. At first, it can be a little intimidating but as soon as you realize there is nothing to it, you will soon become relaxed in administering.
The red spoon that is included with a Nitenpyram purchase is a 10 milligram measuring spoon, good for measuring Nitenpyram. The white spoon that is included with a Lufenuron purchase is 1/4 gram measuring spoon. With the Lufenuron, you can use a quarter teaspoon or equivalent, to figure and measure. A quarter teaspoon = close to one gram. But if you are going to dose many, I would pick up a millimeter/gram scale at Ebay or www.wish.com. I found one on Ebay, just the other day, that was just a little over $7.00 with free shipping. This will also help to save money as you won't be as likely to miss measure.
Many blessings of good health to you and yours, Sincerely, Carrie Gray
Recommended Dosing For Fenbendazole:
25 milligrams per pound
dog and cat
It must be taken for 3 days in a row. **if animal has been found to have giardia it will be 5 days in a row.
You should mix medicine in with WET pet food, just a small amount so that it is for sure that the pet will eat all of it. It is not ok if they do not clean their plate, so just use enough food to mix the meds in. Most pets do not mind the taste. It is not water soluable so you cannot mix it with water, it won't mix.
***it is recommended that you repeat the 3 day dosing schedule in 22-28 days to ensure complete parasite removal. Sometimes, not often, an egg or larva survives. This makes sure 100% are killed and all life cycles are stopped.
*** it is recommended that if you are treating animals with fenbendazole that you consider also treating them with praziquantel to ensure complete parasite removal.
Praziquantel is an over the counter remedy that I do sell but for some reason Paypal made me take it off my site. I do have that available upon request.
For an 8 pound cat = 200 milligrams
9 pound cat = 225
10 pound cat = 250
11 pound cat = 275
12 pound cat = 300
38 pound dog = 950
60 pound dog = 1500
1000 milligrams = 1 gram
Fenbendazole is a drug to treat intestinal parasites. It kills roundworms, whipworms, hookworms, and tapeworms in pets. It is only FDA-approved in dogs, but veterinarians often prescribe Fenbendazole to cats as well.
I do include a 10 milligram measuring spoon along with your order. With your measurements being at 200 milligrams and above, I would suggest on getting a scale that measures milligrams and grams. I have found www.wish.com to be a good cheap source. Just be sure to search for it because it is too easy to get off track on that site! Neat site though. Also, just recently, I found a good deal on Ebay for a new digital gram scale for around $7.00.
Here is my dosing that was suggested to me for Praziquantel
What Fenbendazole won't get, Praziquantel will. PayPal recently shut our site down for a week until I complied with taking Praziquantel off my site. I tried to argue the issue as PayPal supports all kinds of other sellers online with the exact same product but to know avail. I do have it in stock, so if you order, please ask me to add this on. Here are the prices:
20 grams = $29.99 and 60 grams = $65.99
Minimum dose of Praziquantel tapewormer powder is 2.2 MG of powder per pound of pet weight. I recommend using 2.5 MG per pound as a minimum dose. Overdosing up to two times this dose is no problem.
Dosing powder in two methods: Powder dose in food or mix powder in vegetable oil and inject in mouth.
Use the powder dose and mix in a pet’s moist food that will all be eaten by that pet (be sure the pet is hungry). This works fine with dogs and many cats, though some cats will not eat dosed food (see next dosing method below). You can dump a 150 MG (1/8 teaspoonful) level scoop of the bulk powder on a plate and separate into eight nearly equal piles and use each pile for 5 to 7.5 pet pounds (two piles combined treat an 10 to 15 pound pet). Combine two 1/8 teaspoonful scoops for 80 to 120 pound pets. Or separate the 1/8 teaspoon into three near equal piles for three pets each weighing from 14 to 20 pounds each. Wrap unused portions separately in tin foil and store in dark place (closed drawer) for future use. Put powder in moist food and feed to hungry pet in one treatment.
Cats can be hard to dose since some may reject the tapewormer powder in their food. Mix the powder with a liquid - see (2) below. Draw measured liquid dose into syringe (or use a medicine dropper). While someone else holds and strokes the pet to relax it, open the mouth of the cat (or dog) and squirt deep in back of mouth while quickly closing (and holding closed) the pet's mouth (nose pointed up) so the cat (or dog) will swallow all of it. If you don't inject deep, so the cat swallows all of it, then the liquid in the mouth will cause the cat to salivate and spit it out. Flush syringe with water after use and reuse later. Here is the liquid dose preparation:
1. For large pets mix 8 ML of vegetable oil with one level teaspoon (150 X 7 = 1050 MG) of Praziquantel which should result in about 8.2 ML of liquid with the powder added, for dosing 400 pounds of pets in one day of treatment. One ML of this mix is for 40 to 49 pounds of pets, one half of a ML is for 20 to 24 pounds of pets. Divide the pet's weight by 49 to get the day's dose in ML.
2. For smaller pets mix 4 ML of oil with one level scoop (1/8 teaspoon as 150 MG) of tapewormer which should result in about 4 ML of liquid with the powder added, for dosing 40 to 60 pounds of pets in one treatment (usually all that is needed). One ML of this mix is for 10 to 15 pounds of pets, one half of a ML is for 5 to 7 pounds of pets. Divide the pet's weight by 15 to get the minimum dose in ML.
One treatment is all you need.
Tapewormer (Praziquantel) for Dogs Cats Horses Fish and other animals. Sold under the brandname Biltricide among others, is a medication used to treat a number of types of parasitic worm infections. Specifically it is used for schistosomiasis, clonorchiasis, opisthorchiasis, tapeworm infections, cysticercosis, hydatid disease, and other fluke infections.
When administering Praziquantel and Fenbendazole, as with Lufenuron and Nitenpyram, please keep a close eye on all as it is the die off that releases toxins and very rarely a pet will have an allergic reaction, especially an older pet but like I said before is very rare. Always want to be safe so if this happens, call your local vet immediately.
Don't let this overwhelm you as it does look like a lot of information. Once you start dosing, you will see that it isn't as tedious or hard like I first thought when I first started. Knowing that it is hard to overdose with these over the counter meds helps too and before you know it, you will see how easy it becomes, really kind of fun in a mad scientist kind of way, lol. The best part is the safety, more healthy, way for your pets and best of all, the tremendous savings!
