COVID-19 SERVICE UPDATE – OCTOBER 2020
Covid-19 Service Update

At Universal Drugstore, the health and safety of our customers and staff is our highest priority. Due to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic affecting us all, there have been some changes within our industry in general, and in our company specifically, that we want to make our customers aware of.

Call Center

Our call center hours of operation are 6:00 am – 9:00 pm on Monday to Friday, and 7:00 am – 7:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday. If you are experiencing increased hold times or are calling outside of these hours, please leave us a message or send us an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Due to increased demand on telephone networks worldwide, you may experience some intermittent connection problems. If this happens our agents will call you back.

Shipping

We are now seeing improvements in our shipping times. However, things are not yet back to normal and there are still delays occurring. Our normal shipping time averages 1 - 2 weeks. Shipments may take an additional 2 – 4 weeks or more to arrive, depending on the source country of your order. Shipments from the United Kingdom and Canada are generally quicker than from other countries.

Please note that these times are averages and individual shipping times will vary. We highly recommend that you place your order at least 2 – 4 weeks or more ahead of your normal reorder time to avoid running out of your medication.

These are industry-wide delays and are mainly occurring due to disruptions in local postal delivery in the countries where our customers live. They are temporary, and we thank the shipping and delivery personnel who are working hard for all of us during this global crisis.

Please Note: We are now resuming our normal 30-Day Shipping Guarantee. We will provide updates as the situation changes.

Our Commitment

If you have any questions about any changes in our service please do not hesitate to contact us. Our staff are working tirelessly to ensure the timely fulfillment and delivery of all orders. The health of our customers and staff is our highest priority and we remain committed to providing service at the highest level.

We thank you for your support in these challenging times.

Description of Milbemax

Milbemax is a pet medication containing two active ingredients: Praziquantel and Milbemycin Oxime. It belongs to the class of drugs known as broad spectrum anthelmintic medicines. You can buy Milbemax in the form of oral tablets meant to be given to dogs and cats. Each tablet containing 40mg Praziquantel and 16mg Milbemycin Oxime is meant for cats, tablets containing 10mg Praziquantel and 4mg Milbemycin Oxime are meant for small cats or kittens, tablets containing 125mg Praziquantel and 12.5mg Milbemycin Oxime are given to dogs, while those containing 25mg Praziquantel and 2.5mg Milbemycin Oxime are meant for small dogs or puppies.

Indications & Dosage of Milbemax

Milbemax is an oral medication used for treating mixed infections with tapeworms, whipworms, hookworms and roundworms, reducing infection with lungworms, and preventing heartworm disease in dogs. In cats, Milbemax is used for treating mixed infections with hookworms, roundworms and tapeworms, and for preventing heartworm disease. The drug works by acting on the neurotransmission of invertebrates, so that they are paralyzed and can be easily killed.

Dogs are given Milbemax at the rate of 0.5mg Milbemycin Oxime and 5mg Praziquantel per kg of their weight. Cats are given 2mg Milbemycin Oxime and 5mg praziquantel per kg of their weight.

Place the tablet in your pet’s mouth on the back of its tongue. You can even hide it in your pet’s food. Keep a watch out for your pet for a few minutes in order to make sure that it has swallowed the entire dose. If the pet spits out the tablet or if it vomits it out, you will be advised to repeat the dose.

Side Effects & Interactions of Milbemax

Diarrhea, vomiting and nausea may commonly occur in pets being treated with Milbemax. Although these are common side effects of the drug, you should contact the veterinarian immediately if any of these become intolerable. Some animals may also become dehydrated after being treated with Milbemax. Give your pet access to sufficient water, so that it can drink it whenever it needs.

You should watch out for symptoms of an allergic reaction after giving Milbemax to your pet. Symptoms of an allergy include hives on its body, severe itching and scratching, excessive drooling, severe dizziness or difficulty breathing. Take your pet to the veterinarian at once if it develops any of these symptoms.

Before you buy Milbemax for your pet, inform the veterinarian about all the medicines you are giving to your pet, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs, health supplements and herbal products. Also inform him or her about all the other oral or topical medications for treating such infections, including herbal preparations.

Warnings & Precautions of Milbemax

Before you give Milbemax to your pet, inform the veterinarian if it has an allergy to any of its ingredients, if it is suffering from any other medical conditions, or if it is pregnant, lactating or breeding.

Milbemax is meant to be given to animals only, and is not meant for human use. Keep it away from the reach of children in order to prevent accidental ingestion. If this happens, call a doctor immediately.
