Veloxa can be given to dogs of all ages weighing at least 2.5 kg and to lactating bitches.
Preparation and Usage
For dogs weighing 2.5 to 30 kg, give 1 tablet per 10 kg bodyweight:
2.5-5 kg bodyweight: ½ tablet
>5-10 kg bodyweight: 1 tablet
>10-15 kg bodyweight: 1½ tablet
>15-20 kg bodyweight: 2 tablets

For dogs weighing more than 30 kg, Veloxa XL Chewable Tablets (for large dogs) should be used.
Vet experts recommend the following treatment intervals for intestinal worms1:
– Adult dog: at least every 3 months
– Dog living with children: monthly, as Toxocara roundworms can be passed to humans2
– Weaned puppy: monthly until 6 months of age, as roundworms can cause serious illness
A single dose treats the current infection and does not prevent re-infection. Frequency of treatment varies depending on the dog’s risk of re-infection, and therefore varies with age and lifestyle; if there is a risk for re-infection, advice on worming frequency should be sought from a vet.
