For the removal of large roundworms and hookworms, give 1 tablet for each 10 lbs of body weight. (Dosage is designed to provide at least 2.27 mg per pound of body weight for dogs weighing over 5 lbs and at least 4.54 mg per lbs of body weight for dogs weighing less than 5 lbs). For dogs weighing more than 10 lbs, tablets may be broken in half to provide ½ tablet for each additional 5 lbs of body weight. The presence of these parasites should be confirmed by laboratory fecal examination. Do not withhold food from dog prior to or after treatment.
Place tablet directly into back of mouth or conceal tablet in a small amount of food. A follow-up fecal examination should be conducted 2-4 weeks after first treatment to determine the need for retreatment.
It is recommended that puppies be treated at 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 10 weeks of age. Lactating bitches should be treated 2-3 weeks after whelping. Adult dogs should be treated monthly.
Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitism.
Administer 1 teaspoon (5 ml) for each 10 lbs of body weight. It is not necessary to withhold food prior to or after treatment. Dogs usually find this dewormer very palatable and will lick the dose from the bowl willingly. If there is reluctance to accept the dose, mix in a small quantity of dog food to encourage consumption. It is recommended that dogs under constant exposure to worm infestation should have a follow-up fecal exam within 2 to 4 weeks after treatment.
For maximum control and prevention of reinfestation, it is recommended that puppies be treated at 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 10 weeks of age. Lactating bitches should be treated 2 to 3 weeks after whelping. Adult dogs kept in heavily contaminated quarters may be treated monthly.
