Precautions: Do not use in puppies less than four weeks of age or less than two pounds of body weight. Prior to initiation of the MilbeGuard Flavored Tablets treatment program, dogs should be tested for existing heartworm infections. Infected dogs should be treated to remove adult heartworms and microfilariae prior to initiating treatment with MilbeGuard Flavored Tablets. Mild, transient hypersensitivity reactions manifested as labored respiration, vomiting, salivation and lethargy, have been noted in some treated dogs carrying a high number of circulating microfilariae. These reactions are presumably caused by release of protein from dead or dying microfilariae.
