Milbemycin belongs to the avermectin class of anthelmintics. Moxidectin and selamectin also belong to this group and the corresponding SPCs for the medicines should be consulted for guidance on concurrent use. For example, selamectin products can be used with milbemycin, but moxidectin containing products are not recommended to be used concurrently with milbemycin.

Milpro is a generic hybrid and as such the trials carried out for the registration dossier are assessed for ethical purposes and only essential and critical studies are permitted. As milbemycin and praziquantel has been previously studied in the reference product for use in pregnancy a trial for Milpro was not performed. Therefore the SPC states - use during pregnancy and lactation only according to a benefit / risk assessment by the responsible veterinarian.
