DESCRIPTION: Tape Worm Tabs®
(praziquantel) tapeworm tablets for cats and kittens are sized for easy
oral administration to either adult cats or kittens. The tablets may be
given directly in the mouth or crumbled and mixed with the food. If
given with food, mix the tablet(s) with a small amount of the animal's
usual ration. If all of the tablet(s) is/are not eaten, Tape Worm Tabs® may not remove all tapeworms.
USES: Tape Worm Tabs® (praziquantel) tapeworm tablets will remove the common tapeworms, Dipylidium caninum and Taenia taeniaeformis, from cats and kittens.
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 tapeworm segments passed with
the feces. Tapeworm segments are white, pinkish-white or yellow-white
and similar in size and shape to flattened grains of rice. The segments
are most frequently observed lying on the animal's droppings or, less
often, moving across a freshly passed stool. Segments are also found on
the hair around the anus of the animal, or occasionally on the animal's
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
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: Administer to cats and kittens* only as follows:
4 pounds and under
Over 11 pounds
1 1/2 tablets
*Not intended for use in kittens less than 6 weeks of age.
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 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 nonsignificant. 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 the reach of children. Not for human use.
