Krka Launches Broad Spectrum Parasiticide Prinocate®
Veterinary pharmaceuticals company Krka has entered the broad spectrum parasiticide market with the launch of Prinocate, a prescription-only spot-on ectoparasiticide. To mark its arrival, the company is hosting a free webinar - Angiostrongylus vasorum and other nematodes affecting deworming frequency in UK dogs - with Ian Wright BVMS BSc MSc MRCVS, Head of ESCCAP UK and Ireland, on Tuesday 2 June at 8.00 pm.
Helping practices and owners to control the current key parasites of concern, Prinocate contains the same combination of Moxidectin and Imidacloprid as the market leader, offering a wide spectrum of activity. In dogs it is licensed for the treatment and prevention of Angiostrongylus vasorum (lungworm); for the treatment and prevention of fleas and also for lice, mites, heartworm and roundworms. In cats, the licence covers fleas, mites, roundworm and heart worm.
Prinocate is offered in six presentations to suit all weight ranges and in packs of three pipettes, to suit most pet health plans. Each pipette is individually wrapped for ease of use and dispensing.
Commenting, Krka’s National Veterinary Sales Manager Will Ridgway, said: "Prinocate offers practices and pet owners the reassurance of tried and trusted actives Moxidectin and Imidacloprid, the reliability of spot-on delivery and the affordability that Krka customers have come to expect.
"Its launch, hot on the heels of Selehold, and added to our wormers Milprazon and Anthelmin, means that Krka now offers an attractive, reliable and affordable parasite control range and, during its launch period, we are offering one free pack of Prinocate for every five purchased.”
He added: “As Angiostrongylus vasorum is one of the main parasites of concern in practice today, to mark the launch of Prinocate, we’re delighted to be offering a free webinar with Ian Wright during which he will explore how A.vasorum has managed to spread so successfully and the most effective preventative protocol to offer your clients.”
