Contra-indications, warnings, etc

  • Do not use in cases of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.
  • Parasites need to start feeding on the host to become exposed to sarolaner; therefore, the transmission of infectious parasite-borne diseases cannot be excluded.
  • In the absence of available data, treatment of puppies less than 8 weeks of age and/or dogs less than 1.3 kg bodyweight should be based on a benefit-risk assessment by the responsible veterinarian.
  • The safety of Simparica has not been established during pregnancy and lactation or in animals intended for breeding. Laboratory studies in rats and rabbits have not produced any evidence of any teratogenic effects. Use only according to the benefit/risk assessment by the responsible veterinarian.
  • Simparica has been administered orally to 8 week old Beagle puppies at doses of 0, 1, 3, and 5 times the maximum dose of 4 mg/kg at 28 day intervals for 10 doses. No adverse effects were observed at the maximum dose of 4 mg/kg. In the overdose groups, transient and self-limiting neurological signs were observed in some animals: mild tremors at 3 times the maximum dose and convulsions at 5 times the maximum dose. All dogs recovered without treatment.
  • Sarolaner is well tolerated in Collies with a deficient multidrug-resistance-protein 1 (MDR1 -/-) following single oral administration at 5 times the recommended dose. No treatment-related clinical signs were observed.
