Protection against flea infestations, heartworm and intestinal worms with Sentinel™ Spectrum. 3-in-1† protection wrapped up in a tasty beef & bacon chew.
Break the flea cycle with Sentinel™ preventing flea infestations from ever starting by targeting the development of flea eggs, larvae and pupae
Stop heartworm infection from the outset with Sentinel
Sentinel™ is the only combination product that protects your dog from roundworm, whipworm and hookworm, whilst also protecting against tapeworm, including Hydatid tapeworm, which is potentially deadly to humans
Made from real beef, Sentinel™ Spectrum is easy to dose, given once a month with a full meal. Dogs love the beef and bacon chew, and unlike spot-on treatments there’s no harmful reside that rubs off, washes away or breaks down in sunlight.
Important Safety Information
Sentinel™ Spectrum can be safely used in puppies from 6 weeks of age, breeding males and females, and collies sensitive to ivermectin. Sentinel™ Spectrum Tasty Chews have been safety tested at up to 10 times the recommended dose.
If an animal with adult heartworm infection (and therefore circulating microfilariae) is given Sentinel™ Spectrum, a transient shock-like reaction can occur. To avoid this, dogs should be tested for adult heartworm and treated if necessary before starting Sentinel™ Spectrum.
Lufenuron, milbemycin oxime and praziquantel are the active ingredients in Sentinel™ Spectrum.
Lufenuron is an insect growth regulator that interrupts the flea breeding cycle. Adult fleas that feed on an animal treated with Sentinel™ Spectrum will produce eggs or larvae that do not develop to the adult stage. Therefore reducing the number of fleas in the environment
Milbemycin oxime interferes with nerve transmission in invertebrates, which helps protect against heartworm, roundworm, hookworm and whipworm (minimum dose rate: 0.5mg/kg)
Praziquantel causes muscle spasm in tapeworm, which are then attacked by enzymes and disintegrate (minimum dose rate: 5mg/kg)
Sentinel™ Spectrum are beef-flavoured, and studies have shown they are so palatable that 97% of dogs accept them straight from the hand.*
Directions for Use
Sentinel™ Spectrum must be given once a month, ideally on the same date.
If a dose is overdue by <15 days, treat immediately and resume monthly dosing.
If a dose is missed by 15-30 days, heartworm prevention can be maintained if treated immediately and monthly dosing resumes for at least the next 2 months.
If a dose is missed by >60 days, a veterinarian must be consulted in case the animal has contracted heartworm. Dosing may be recommenced, and a blood test for adult heartworm must be performed after 6 months.
Dose must be given with a full meal, either within food or immediately afterwards (to allow effective absorption of lufenuron).
