Directions for Use
Tapeworm infection is one of the most common internal parasite problems actually observed by cat owners. The presence of tapeworms is indicated by the presence of white or yellow-white and similar in size and shape to flattened grains of rice. The segments are most frequently observed lying on the animalís droppings or, less often, anus of the animal, or occasionally on the animalís bedding. Cats become infected with tapeworms after eating fleas or small rodents (rats, mice) which are infected with tapeworm larvae. Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitism.
Dosage and Administration: Administer to cats and kittens* only as follows:
4 pounds and under ....... Ĺ tablet
5-11 punds .................... 1 tablet
Over 11 pounds ............ 1 Ĺ tablets
* Not intended for use in kittens less than 6 weeks old.
Fasting is Neither Necessary Nor Recommended
Retreatment: Steps should be taken to control fleas and rodents on the premises in order to prevent reinfection; otherwise, retreatment will be necessary. This is especially true in the cases of tapeworms transmitted by fleas (Dipylidium caninum) where reinfection is almost certain to occur if fleas are not removed from the animal and its environment. If reinfection occurs, tapeworm segments may be observed within one month of the initial treatment.
Side Effects: Isolated incidents of either salivation or diarrhea have been reported following treatment, but were considered non-significant. If these signs are observed and they persist, consult your veterinarian.
Warning: Consult your veterinarian before administering tablets to weak or debilitated animals.
Warning: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human use.
