The beef and bacon flavored soft-chew is readily accepted by dogs six weeks of age or older. Easy to feed; administer once a month after or with a normal meal to ensure adequate absorption.

Sentinel® Spectrum® contains six chews per package and is available in four strengths formulated according to the weight of the dog. Each chewable flavored tablet is formulated to provide a minimum of 0.23 mg/pound (0.5 mg/kg) of Milbemycin Oxime, 4.55 mg/pound (10 mg/kg) of Lufenuron, and 2.28 mg/pound (5 mg/kg) of Praziquantel.

Prior to administration of Sentinel® Spectrum®, dogs should be tested for existing heartworm infections. At the discretion of the veterinarian, infected dogs should be treated to remove adult heartworms. Sentinel® Spectrum® is not effective against adult D. immitis. Mild, transient hypersensitivity reactions manifested as labored breathing, vomiting, salivation and lethargy have been noted in some dogs treated with Milbemycin Oxime carrying a high number of circulating microfilariae. These reactions are presumably caused by release of protein from dead or dying microfilariae.
Sentinel® Spectrum® should be administered at monthly intervals beginning within one month of the dog’s first seasonal exposure to mosquitoes and continuing until at least six months after the dog’s last seasonal exposure Sentinel® Spectrum® may be administered year-round without interruption. When switching from another Heartworm preventative product to Sentinel® Spectrum®, the first dose of Sentinel® Spectrum® should be given within a month of the last dose of the former product.
Flea Treatment and Prevention with Sentinel® Spectrum® may begin at any time of the year, preferably starting one month before fleas become active and continuing monthly through the end of flea season. In areas where fleas are common year-round, monthly treatment with Sentinel® Spectrum® should continue the entire year without interruption.
To minimize the likelihood of flea re-infestation, it is important to treat all animals within a household with an approved flea protection product, as necessary.
Dogs may be exposed to and can become infected with roundworms, whipworms, hookworms, and tapeworms throughout the year, regardless of season or climate.
Clients should be advised of appropriate measures to prevent reinfection of their dog with intestinal parasites. Because the pre-patent period for E. multilocularis may be as short as 26 days, dogs treated at the labeled monthly intervals may become re-infected and shed eggs between treatments.
Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

The chewable tablet should be administered in a manner that encourages the dog to chew, rather than to swallow without chewing. The chewable may be broken into pieces and fed to dogs that normally swallow treats whole. Care should be taken that the dog consumes the complete dose, and treated animals should be observed a few minutes after administration to ensure that no part of the dose is lost or rejected. If it is suspected that any of the dose has been lost, re-dosing is recommended.
