ProLabs Tape Worm Tabs for Cats are sized for easy oral administration to cats of any age and size, and are FDA approved for prescription-free use. Tape Worm Tabs are 100% effective at removing tapeworm infestation from your cat or kitten.
Once the tab is absorbed, metabolized in the liver and excreted in the bile, its active ingredient enters the digestive tract and destroys the tapeworm's ability to resist digestion. This will result in whole tapeworms being very rarely passed by the animal; instead, only disintegrated and partially digested fragments of tapeworm will be visible in the animal's feces. Most digested tapeworms will not appear in the stool.
Active Ingredients: Praziquantel
Directions: Droncit® Feline Cestocide Tablets may be administered directly per os or crumbled and mixed with the feed. The recommended dosage of praziquantel varies according to body weight. Smaller animals require a relatively larger dosage because of their higher metabolic rate. The optimum dose for each individual animal will be achieved by utilizing the following dosage schedule:
Cats 4 lbs and under - 1/2 tablet
Cats 5-11 lbs - 1 tablet
Cats over 11 lbs - 1 1/2 tablets
*Not intended for use in kittens less than 6 weeks of age.
Fasting: The recommended dosage of praziquantel is not affected by the presence or absence of food in the gastrointestinal tract, therefore, FASTING IS NEITHER NECESSARY NOR RECOMMENDED.
Retreatment: For those animals maintained on premises where reinfections are likely to occur, clients should be instructed in the steps necessary to prevent reinfection; otherwise, retreatment may be necessary. This is especially true in cases of Dipylidium caninum infections where reinfection is almost certain to occur if fleas are not removed from the animal and its environment.
