Virbac Milpro Dog & Puppy Dewormer
Milpro dog dewormer – characteristics:
Milpro tablets are flavoured, and dogs enjoy their meat flavour. This makes the tablets easy to administer: most dogs will eat these tablets without hesitation, as they can be easily mixed in with your dog’s food.
The shape and size of these tablets also makes administering them easy.
The tablets can be split easily, making it easier to administer to puppies.
Milpro is a safe and effective product that works on the most common worms.

It is recommended that puppies be dewormed at 2, 4, 6 and 8 weeks of age, and then monthly until the age of 6 months. Adult dogs should, in the best-case scenario, be dewormed 4 times annually. Lactating dogs should be dewormed at the same time that their puppies are dewormed.
To prevent heartworm (dirofilaria), we recommend administering Milpro following the recommendations listed below:
- Dogs travelling to southern Europe (southern France, Italy, Spain, Portugal = endemic areas) should be protected from heartworm during the risk period, which runs from the end of March to the end of October. Dogs should be treated 1 month after arriving in the endemic area.
- Dogs staying less than one month in the high-risk area should be treated 1 month after their arrival in the high-risk area (one month after returning home) and they should be retreated one month after the first treatment.
- If your dog will be spending more than one month in the high-risk area, it should be treated monthly, with the first treatment 1 month after your arrival in the high-risk area. Prior to stopping preventive treatment, your dog should have received 2 doses, 1 month apart, after returning home.
- Dogs living in the high-risk area should be treated monthly during the risk period.
Do not administer to puppies aged less than 2 weeks or weighing less than 0.5 kg.
