New generic broad spectrum, cost-effective option to protect against heartworm, control fleas, and intestinal parasites.
FORT WORTH, TEXAS (July 12, 2021) – Vetoquinol USA announces the launch of Imoxi™ (imidacloprid + moxidectin) Topical Solution for Dogs.
"We are excited that Vetoquinol's first entry into the parasiticides market brings veterinarians and pet owners broad-spectrum parasite protection at an affordable cost," said Eric M. Alsup, DVM, Country Manager, Vetoquinol USA. "Imoxi provides the combination of imidacloprid and moxidectin that veterinarians trust, but at a cost more owners can afford."
In a study, lack of compliance in administering heartworm preventives was a possible reason for rising incidence of heartworm cases from 2013 to 2016.1 One survey found the cost of heartworm treatment was a major barrier to dog owners not currently using any preventive products.2
Imoxi is a once-a-month topical formula trusted for broad-spectrum protection against fleas, heartworm, sarcoptic manage, and intestinal parasites. It is available in a ready-to-use solution and is approved for use on puppies that are at least 7 weeks of age and dogs weighing at least 3 pounds.
Imoxi is available to pet owners by prescription only. Veterinarians can purchase now through select distributors or by contacting their Vetoquinol representative.
CAUTION: Federal (U.S.A.) law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
Dogs: WARNING: DO NOT ADMINISTER THIS PRODUCT ORALLY. For the first 30 minutes after application, ensure that dogs cannot lick the product from application sites on themselves or other treated animals. Children should not come in contact with the application sites for two (2) hours after application. (See Contraindications, Warnings, Human Warnings and Adverse Reactions for more information.)
