A once a month beef flavoured chew (given with a full meal) which most dogs will happily eat from your hand. When used all year around, Sentinel Spectrum will provide for your dog 3-in-1 parasite protection against the serious parasites, including fleas, which can lead to disease or death.

What parasites does Sentinel Spectrum control?

Used for the prevention of:
  • Heartworm – spread by mosquitoes, so all dogs in such areas are at risk, will cause heart & lung disease and eventually death.
    * Dogs must be tested for heartworm before commencing Sentinel Spectrum if they have not been on heartworm prevention before

 and the control of:
  • Roundworm (immature & adult) – causes diarrhoea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In younger dogs it can stunt growth and give them a “pot belly” appearance. As round can be transmitted to puppies soon after they are born, treatment can commence as young as 2 weeks of age. Roundworm can cause disease in humans 

  • Hookworm – causes bloody diarrhoea, anaemia & in some cases death;  damage the wall of the intestines causing them to bleed internally leading to black faeces. Larvae and be swallowed or simply migrate through the skin. Hookworm can cause disease in humans

  • Whipworm – can cause bloody, jelly-like diarrhoea and anaemia. Are picked up from the environment, often difficult to find when testing

  • Tapeworm – live in the large intestine and absorb nutrients. Can be the cause of 'itchy bottoms' in dogs. The segments of some tapeworms may be seen in the faeces of dogs. 

  • Fleas are fleas ! they cause discomfort and itching to your pet and in some dogs, Flea Allergy Dermatitis. Sentinel controls fleas by stopping flea eggs from hatching – this controls flea infestations before they start.
