What is Endogard?
Endogard is a liver flavoured allwormer tablet that treats and controls roundworm (Toxascaris leonina, Toxocara canis), hookworm (Ancylostoma caninum, Uncinaria stenocephala), whipworm (Trichuris vulpis) and tapeworm (Dipylidium caninum, Taenia ovis, Taenia pisiformis, Taenia hydatigena) including hydatids (Echinococcus granulosus) in dogs. It does not prevent heartworms. Endogard has been independently assessed and approved for use by the National Regulatory Authority in Canberra under the Agvet codes. It has a tasty liver flavor which makes it more palatable and easy to administer to dogs as they consider it to be a treat.
How It Works?
Praziquantel and oxibendazole are the two active ingredients present in Endogard. Praziquantel, an anthelmintic is used for the treatment of tapeworms and flukes. It induces contraction in parasites which results in paralysis in the contracted state. The dying parasites are dislodged from their site of action in the host organism and may enter systemic circulation or may be destroyed by host immune reaction. Oxibendazole, a benzimidazole drug protects dogs against roundworms, strongyles, threadworms, pinworms and lungworm infestations. When both these ingredients are combined there is a total parasite control in the body of your dog.
