Lufenuron, the active ingredient of PROGRAM, is an insect development inhibitor (IDI) belonging to the group of benzoyl-phenyl-ureas (BPUs). Like all BPU's, lufenuron acts as a chitin synthesis inhibitor. Female fleas feeding on treated animals will produce eggs out of which no larvae will hatch. The interruption of the flea life cycle results in a long-term, very effective flea control on the animal as well as in the environment
Program SUS is an oral suspension for cats for the prevention and control of flea infestations.
Dosage and Administration
PROGRAM SUS is given orally at the minimum dose of 30mg lufenuron per kg body weight according to the following table:
Weight of cat
Less than 4.5 kg
1 ampoule of PROGRAM 133mg
>4.5 to9 kg
1 ampoule of PROGRAM 266mg
Cats over 9 kg are given an appropriate combination of ampoules.
PROGRAM SUS should be given orally once per month.
Treatment of existing infestations can begin at any time. In cases of severe infestations the use of an adulticide during the first few weeks of the treatment may be necessary.
PROGRAM SUS is best used in a prophylactic way. In this case treatment should start in spring, before the beginning of the flea season, and repeated monthly throughout the flea season. PROGRAM can be given year round.
All cats and dogs in a household must be treated in order to prevent the build up of developing fleas in the environment, thus establishing an infestation. For dogs use PROGRAM tablets.
PROGRAM SUS must be administered with a meal. It can be given with a small quantity of food before the rest of the meal is given, or per os immediately after feeding.
