This is a prescription drug in the United States. I don't know if you need a prescription for this in the UK. When prescribed we dose it at 2mg/kg/day by mouth for 4 weeks concomitantly with allopurinol dosed at 20mg/kg/day by mouth for 6-12 months. Treatment of dogs is usally followed by clinical improvement but the parasite is rarely eliminated and treated dogs remain latent carriers that may relapse and continue to harbor a zoonotic infection.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
