Manufacturer: Novartis

(LUFENURON)

Information For Dosing Cats

The once-a-month flavored tablet that controls flea populations on cats.

Introduction

Novartis Animal Health encourages you to take the time to read this package insert which describes the use of PROGRAM® (lufenuron) Flavor Tabs® as a convenient monthly flea control treatment. Controlling flea infestations is very important to the health of your cat. After reading this insert, if you have any questions about PROGRAM Flavor Tabs, flea control, or medical problems associated with flea infestations, consult your veterinarian, who is your pet’s health care expert.

Warnings

Not for human use. Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children.

Administration

TO ENSURE ADEQUATE ABSORPTION, ALWAYS ADMINISTER PROGRAM FLAVOR TABS IN CONJUNCTION WITH A NORMAL MEAL.

Be certain the cat consumes the entire tablet or tablets. The tablets can be broken prior to direct dosing for ease of administration to small cats and kittens. As an alternative to direct dosing, the tablets can be broken and mixed into wet food. In multiple cat households, each cat should be treated separately to achieve adequate dosing. Watch the cat closely following dosing to be sure the entire dose has been consumed. If it is not entirely consumed, redose once with the full recommended dose as soon as possible.

Treatment with PROGRAM Flavor Tabs may begin at any time of year. Treatment should continue until the end of “flea season.” If there is a risk of exposure to fleas year-round, then treatment should continue the entire year without interruption. Ask your veterinarian for details concerning your geographic area and the most effective treatment schedule for your cat.

Description

PROGRAM Flavor Tabs are available in two sizes of tablets for oral administration to cats and kittens according to their weight (see Dosage section). The active ingredient of PROGRAM Flavor Tabs is lufenuron, a benzoylphenyl-urea derivative classified as an insect development inhibitor (IDI).

As an insect development inhibitor, PROGRAM Flavor Tabs do not kill adult fleas, but effectively and safely control flea populations on your cat by breaking the flea’s life cycle at the egg stage.

Program Flavor Tabs for Dogs & Cats Indications

PROGRAM Flavor Tabs are indicated for use in cats and kittens, four weeks of age and older, for the control of flea populations.

Lufenuron controls flea populations by preventing the development of flea eggs and does not kill adult fleas. You may also need to use a product that kills adult fleas.

PROGRAM Flavor Tabs may be used along with CAPSTAR® (nitenpyram) Tablets to provide a Flea Management System that kills adult fleas and prevents flea eggs from hatching. Please see the Supplemental Package Insert provided with this product for information about using the two products together.

Without concurrent use of an adulticide, adequate flea control may not be achieved in cats that have repeated exposure to flea infested animals or environments.

Precautions

PROGRAM Flavor Tabs have no effect on adult fleas, but act to immediately break the flea life cycle by preventing eggs from developing into adults. However, pre-existing immature fleas in the cat’s environment may continue to develop and emerge as adults after treatment with PROGRAM Flavor Tabs has begun. Based on results of clinical studies, this emergence generally occurs during the first 30-60 days. Therefore, if your pet already has a flea infestation before starting PROGRAM Flavor Tabs, noticeable results may not be observed until several weeks after dosing. In cooler climates, immature fleas may take longer to complete the life cycle and emerge as adults.

To speed control, products that kill adult fleas, like CAPSTAR Tablets may be used temporarily with PROGRAM Flavor Tabs, depending on the severity of the infestation. Your veterinarian can recommend the most effective treatment plan for your pet.

To ensure that your pet gets the greatest benefit from PROGRAM Flavor Tabs, you must administer the dose once a month in conjunction with a normal meal. If you miss the 30-day interval, administer PROGRAM Flavor Tabs immediately and resume your monthly dosing schedule. It is important to treat all cats in the household. Fleas can reproduce on untreated pets and allow infestations to persist. All dogs in the household should be treated with an approved product like lufenuron.

The active ingredient in PROGRAM Flavor Tabs is excreted in high concentrations in the milk, however, no resulting adverse effects have been recognized.

Flea Infestations On Cats

Although other flea species may be found on cats, the cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis) is the predominant flea associated with infestations on cats in the United States. In addition to the common nuisance irritations associated with infestations, fleas can be responsible for medical problems in your pet such as miliary dermatitis, a skin reaction to flea bites. Fleas also transmit other parasites including tapeworms. Controlling flea infestations is important to your cat’s health while also reducing the major and minor annoyances associated with these parasites.

The following diagram illustrates the flea’s life cycle and where PROGRAM Flavor Tabs acts to break this cycle:

Life Cycle of the Flea

Fleas can be a problem because they reproduce so rapidly. A single female flea may produce up to 2,000 eggs over her lifetime. Eggs hatch and develop into adults within only three weeks. Adult female fleas feed by ingesting blood from your cat and subsequently lay eggs which drop off your cat’s coat. Within days, larvae hatch from the eggs and live undetected in your cat’s surroundings, such as the carpet, bedding, and other protected areas. Flea larvae spin a cocoon, and when appropriately stimulated, a young adult flea emerges and jumps onto your cat to continue the life cycle. After biting a PROGRAM Flavor Tabs treated cat, the female flea ingests lufenuron which is deposited in her eggs. Lufenuron prevents these eggs from hatching and developing into mature adults. This safe and convenient approach to flea control effectively breaks the flea’s life cycle and controls flea populations.

Dosage

PROGRAM Flavor Tabs are given orally, once a month, at the recommended minimum dosage of 13.6 mg lufenuron per pound (30 mg/kg) of body weight.

Supplemental Product Information

Information for Dosing Cats

This insert describes the concurrent use of PROGRAM® (lufenuron) Flavor Tabs® and CAPSTAR® (nitenpyram) Tablets for the management of fleas on cats and kittens.

Please read the insert contained in each package for complete information on the individual products prior to dosing.

Warnings

Not for human use. Keep this and all drugs out of reach of children.

Directions

In cats and kittens the concurrent use of PROGRAM Flavor Tabs and CAPSTAR Tablets is indicated to kill adult fleas and prevent eggs from hatching. The effects of PROGRAM Flavor Tabs, which control flea populations, and CAPSTAR Tablets, which treat flea infestations, are combined to provide a FLEA MANAGEMENT SYSTEM.

Step 1: Prevention And Control

Give PROGRAM Flavor Tabs once per month to control flea populations. PROGRAM Flavor Tabs contain lufenuron. Lufenuron controls flea populations by preventing the development of flea eggs and does not kill adult fleas. If a cat currently has a flea infestation, more rapid relief can be accomplished by adding CAPSTAR to the treatment as follows.

Step 2: Kill Adult Fleas

If your pet currently has a flea infestation, use CAPSTAR Tablets to kill adult fleas. CAPSTAR Tablets contain nitenpyram and are effective for the treatment of flea infestations. Nitenpyram starts killing adult fleas within 30 minutes of administration.

- Administer CAPSTAR Tablets once per week until adult fleas are no longer observed.

- For a severe flea infestation, administer CAPSTAR Tablets twice per week until adult fleas are no longer observed.

- Additional CAPSTAR Tablets may be administered as needed to kill the occasional adult flea picked up from infested environments.

- It is important to treat all cats and dogs (see below) in the household. Fleas can reproduce on untreated pets and allow infestations to persist.

Dosage

The combination of PROGRAM Flavor Tabs and CAPSTAR Tablets should be administered according to the following schedule. Weigh the cat prior to administration to ensure proper dosage. Do not administer to cats under 2 pounds or less than 4 weeks of age.

TO ENSURE ADEQUATE ABSORPTION, ALWAYS ADMINISTER PROGRAM FLAVOR TABS IN CONJUNCTION WITH A NORMAL MEAL (see package insert for PROGRAM Flavor Tabs for details).
