  • The tablets can be given to the dog with or without food.
  • No starvation is needed before or after treatment.
  • To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible.
  • The dosing program should be established by the veterinary surgeon.
As a general rule, puppies should be treated at 2 weeks of age and every 2 weeks until 12 weeks of age. Thereafter they should be treated at 3 month intervals. It is advisable to treat the bitch at the same time as the puppies.
For the control of Toxocara canis, nursing bitches should be dosed 2 weeks after giving birth and every two weeks until weaning. For routine worm control adult dogs should be treated every 3 months.
In case of confirmed single infestation by cestode or by nematode, a monovalent product containing a cestocide or a nematocide alone should be preferred.
For routine treatment a single dose is recommended. In the event of heavy roundworm infestation a repeat dose should be given after 14 days. If an infestation caused by Echinococcus (E.granulosus) is detected in dogs, a repetition of the treatment is recommended for safety purpose.
