What is Xeno 50 Mini spot-on and who is it for?
XENO® 50-Mini Spot-on solution is a simple and effective way to keep your small pet reliably parasite free.
Applied to the skin, XENO® 50-Mini is absorbed into the body and is particularly effective against the parasites which commonly cause ear disease in the rabbit and ferret, and the mites that cause skin disease in guinea pigs, rabbits and rodents. This includes the mite that causes mange in guinea pigs and the condition known as walking dandruff in rabbits.
It is also effective against many of the parasites which cause skin and feather problems in birds.
The active substance in XENO® 50-Mini Spot-on solution is ivermectin, a substance known as an endectocide because it kills parasites that cause infestation inside the body (endoparasites) as well as those living outside the body, on the skin (ectoparasites). Ivermectin is used in many species for the control of mites, roundworms and lice.
XENO® 50-Mini Spot-on solution is intended for use on small rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, rats, hamsters, mice, gerbils, chinchillas and other small rodents up to 1250 g body weight, and birds less than 666 g body weight.
PackagingCartons containing 9 polypropylene tubes, each of 50 ?g ivermectin.
